SKILL LEVEL

My daughter Tennessee and I did this project together. Her idea was to use the Moto-Saw to cut a tree silhouette from a board. I thought that was a great idea.

Let's Get Started

STEP 1

Step 1

First, find or create your tree pattern. I started by choosing, and falling in love with an old weathered piece of barn wood. I thought that nesting trees would be fun, so I drew three different styles of trees, one within the other.

STEP 2

Step 2

Use the Dremel Moto-Saw™ to cut out your tree patterns. Tennessee took one look at the pattern drawn on the cracked wood, and wisely decided that she would be the photographer while I did the cutting!

STEP 3

Step 3

I found a board that would look good for the base, and cut it down to size with the Dremel Saw-Max™.

STEP 4

Step 4

I carefully sanded everything with the Multi-Max. I made sure to break over all sharp edges and take off just enough patina to highlight the grain. Next, I wanted to give the edges of the base some shape, so I mounted my Dremel Rotary tool to the workstation, turned the tool on its side with a sanding drum, and began contouring.

STEP 5

Step 5

When I finished contouring and sanding the trees and the base, I used wood glue to mount the tree cut-outs to it. I put them all back together, with each tree extending out about half of its thickness.
