I was on vacation when I saw some beautiful carved screen doors. I wanted one sooo badly but they were way out of my price range…So being a rather handy lady I went home and attempted to make myself a replica of the door. I was very happy with my first attempt. My hubby even took a picture to work with him to show to his co-workers. Next thing you know I’ve got an order for a double door featuring beavers (don’t ask me why! LOL). As soon as I finished that set I got another order for a third door. Ofcourse, every time I make a new door I feel that I’m getting a little better but… I have no idea what I’m doing!
I’m using an old Craftsman rotary tool that I inherited from my father-in-law. I have no idea what bits I should be using, what the bits real names are, or what they are supposed to be used for. I’ve been trying to look into powercarving online but I’m not sure what I’m looking for. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.
