First Time Craft: Carving with a Dremel

This month Run Red Run and I are doing a series of four videos where we’re working with a new craft or technique or material in each one. This first week, I sculpted a tree stump and axe, and carved the axe handle (for the first time ever) with a Dremel rotary tool.

All four of the videos connect back to that Witch House we built last year. That was our first “build” of any kind, and we always wanted to add onto that build as we learned more skills. So, we’re finally getting around to it.

So the first craft I decided to learn was carving wood with a rotary tool. Of course I don’t know all the ins and outs of carving with a rotary tool yet. It’s always going to be a process where, hopefully, I’ll get better as I go along. I’m just happy to have not injured myself with this first attempt.

I should mention that all four of these videos, aside from being linked to each other, and to that Witch House build, are building to a final video where we put all the crafts and items we made together into one project. We’re having fun calling that project Witch House Part 2: The Witchening.

Anyway, it’s just some fun we had learning new ways to make things. If you think you’d enjoy that, check out the first video below.
