In the axial centers of the last drilled holes for mounting to the vertical axis of the vane. The axle itself is a circular wooden rod (for example, cut shovel). On it onto the glue two discs of chipboard, all of which are nests of cells under the jars of spices. Socket can be selected on the half-thickness of the disc or to facilitate drilled through, as shown in the figure.
