A clever tree tap that lets you screw a water bottle on! Fresh maple sap is actually quite delicious, especially if you add a little bit of lemon juice. Put the bottle on at the beginning of the day, and enjoy some sap later. See Bill of Materials for instructions.

Notes: Tree tapping is usually done in very early spring, when the trees are just thawing.

This design also incorporates thing:35907.

Materials and methods

You will need:
1. Some Epoxy
2. A Plastic Bottle

1. Print both parts without support. Print the tap with a brim, or else it will probably fall over during the print.
2. Mix up some epoxy and glue the cap to the hole on the tap. Make sure you let it dry for a bit.
3. Drill a hole in a maple tree with a 15/32 inch or 12mm bit, about 5 or 6 cm deep.
4. Push the assembled tap in, wait until some sap starts coming out. It could take a couple minutes.
5.Screw the bottle on and enjoy!
