Drill for Drainage

Drill a hole in the bottom of the teacup. This will allow for water drainage. To do this, place a small scrap of wood under the teacup base, making sure the teacup rests on the wood. Use a tungsten-tipped drill bit and wear safety goggles when drilling. Ceramic and porcelain can easily shatter, so use a slow drill speed and very little pressure.
