The main tip I have is to take your time and practice on a scrap piece. I had never pierced a piece before working on the vessel. Do not try to get fancy to start with, I would have been better off to just do the piercings and skip putting in the logs in between them and the outside. Sanding of the piercings was the biggest problem I had. In this case more would have been better, so the bigger area that you do gives you room to sand. I tried to use a rotary tool and burned the edges.
To me that burned area takes away from the piece, and is the reason I did not win. I am going to get a dienst tool next, the right tool for the job.
