7. Send the wick down through a hole poked in the cap, then through the plywood circle, and the bead. Bring it back up through the plywood circle, then the cap. Tie the wick tightly against the cap and leave one end of wick about 8 inches long. Send the long end of the wick up through the pipe, into the bottle’s neck, and out the top. Use a pea-sized piece of wax to stopper the hole on the inside of the cap. Screw the cap on. Melt approximately 8 ounces of wax. Hold the wick straight up as you pour the wax. To eliminate leaks, add 1/4 inch of wax first, then wait for it to set before filling it.
