Power tools….. bloggers usually love some power tools and most people think of power tools as largish, as in circular saws, drills, etc. Today I am talking about a power tool that should be in your arsenal…..for design and for fun! The Dremel multitasking tool.
I found a wood changing table at the thrift store and then was able to score two very old bar stools from a house around the corner from my shop.
This how I found them…..
And this is how they came together to form a fun partnership!
I removed all of the seat padding and then glued and screwed the changing table to the stools after I sanded and spray painted the stools so they looked fresh. And although I liked the overall look, it needed something. So I made a triangle template, outlined them and then used my Dremel tool to score the top of the wood. I used the smallest burr that comes with the set and it was easy. I just took my time and made sure that I was going the same depth and keeping my lines straight.
Here she is all shaped up. This only took me about 30 minutes to complete but it added a unique and modern touch to this industrial marriage of found objects. The girl who purchased it saw it at a night market I did in Downtown Pittsburgh. She didn't purchase it that night but called me 2 days later and said she couldn't stop thinking about it and could she come to the shop to buy it? Of course!
I love it when people fall in love with something that I have created. I know I preach think of ways to use something in a different way. Well now you can think of the Dremel in a new way…..I think I'll be seeing triangles on more things!!
Always being renewed,
