BB...have the wood sealed. Add your hardware. Use some masking tape

folded over so it sticks on both sides and stick the tape to the belly.

Now you can try different weights in different positions to get the

effects you wish. I did a suspender in my sink today and ended up

with 2 diff. bullet wgts in 2 positions. You'll want to work quickly as

the tape will not hold forever...but long enough.

Another tip...write down the drill bit size you are using for diff. size wgts

-this will save you time in the future. good luck
