- 1 large calabash bowl 25-30 cm diameter 10- l 5 cm deep OR 1 similar size enamel, plastic or metal bowl
- 1 small calabash bowl 10-15 cm diameter
- 3 strong sticks of equal thickness 1m to 1.15m long OR 3 similar size bamboo stakes
- 3 meters (approx.) raffia OR 3 meters string or tie vine
- awl OR drill
1. Hold the sticks crossed together in a tripod position.
2. Have a second person put the bowl on the tripod.
3. The higher the cross-point of the sticks, the higher the bowl will sit.
4. When the bowl is at the height you want, mark the sticks at-the place where they cross.
5. Hold the sticks together upright and wrap raffia or string several times around the place where you marked them, and tie securely.
6. Spread the sticks apart at their cross-point and tie over, under and around to hold them firmly apart.
7. Make three drain holes in the bottom of the small calabash.
8. Make three holes near the edge of the small calabash, 1/3 of the diameter apart, for raffia ties.
9. Tie the small bowl to the tripod legs beneath the cross-point, with raffia ties. This will be a soap holder.
10. Push the ends of the sticks into the ground where the washstand will be located and place the bowl on the tripod.
