If you’ve been following my blog for any time now, you know I love a good giveaway. Not only do I enjoy hosting exciting giveaways here on JSIM, I actually enter them from time to time. Recently, I entered one of my projects in the DremelWeekends sweepstakes. A technique I show using my little Dremel Stylus to craft a tool to create postage stamp perforations. And, to my delight, my entry won a Dremel Ultimate Tool Prize Pack! How awesome is that?!!
The prize included:
The day I opened my prize package I had a project ready to go. It’s so great to be able to do small projects myself rather than add to Mr. Wonderful’s already-full honey-do list, so I tackled this one myself with one of my new tools, the Dremel Saw-Max. The problem I had was that there was a big, ugly circuit breaker box framed on the wall of my freshly painted barn and it was protruding out the wall that I’d planned to put my bookcase against.
I placed the bookcase in position up against the circuit box and reached back with a pencil and marked around it. (I’m not sure what the wording WEB PAGE D on the back of the bookshelf is all about, it came that way from the cabinetmaker.)
I used the Saw-Max to cut along the lines. This is one powerful tool. I learned later from Jake, our barn studio carpenter, that the Multi-Max Oscillating Tool would have been a bit better for this particular project. I’ve got some learnin’ to do with all these new tools! But the section was cut, and the bookcase fit perfectly in place.
I covered the box with a stack of books and my husband was super proud of my accomplishment. And this, my friends, is only the beginning of the fun stuff to come using my winnings to craft and make and fix!
