i happened on the boxes of driftwood today in a search for something else, which i undoubtedly don't remember (yes, i'm at that age, where i frequently go to another room to get something and stand there bemusedly wondering what it was). i'm easily distracted, what can i say? so i located my dremel tool (it's just like new, funnily enough) and decided to play. wood has a personality and a mind of its own. and i'm not known for my coordination skills. so there's a way to go. let's suffice it to say i probably shouldn't have been playing on the good dining table. but it was a nice way to spend an hour. the buzz of the dremel is oddly therapeutic.

that's all for now. if i write more, it will be a rant about the new law in the state of my birth, allowing (encouraging?) teachers to carry a weapon to school. i want to say something a bit more reasonable (and reasoned) about it than what's on my mind at the moment, so i'll restrain. for now.

These are awesome.

Good luck on finding "reasonable" words. I haven't found mine yet either.

When I read the news I thought at least a dozen posts will not be enough for J.

Glad to see you found a perfect way to distract yourself from that stupidity!

Silly me... I keep thinking that arming myself everyday for preschool could be termed "overkill". The world has gone mad. Now, please pass me that dremel tool before I make myself totally crazy thinking about these things!

Do you have other Dremel cutting bits? If you had difficulty cutting with what's shown in the photo, you did OK because that's a 1/8" drill bit - and not a carving burr.

And remember, if Dremel Tools are outlawed, only outlaws will have Dremel Tools. So says the NRA.
