Materials

Let's Get Started

To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.

STEP 1

Step 1

Sketch your design onto your chosen wood piece as a guide. You can use one of our design ideas or create one of your own!

STEP 2

Step 2

Using your Saw-Max equipped with a SM500 Wood & Plastic Wheel, cut your wood piece to size. We re-used an old chair leg as our material for this project. If your wood piece is thicker than 3/4" of an inch, you may need to flip or rotate your material to complete your cut.

STEP 3

Step 3

Secure your piece of wood in a vice & using your FortiFlex tool paired with a 117 High-Speed Cutter bit, remove the initial material from your carving. Once the larger portions of material is removed & you have a general shape you're happy with, switch to 9910 & 7103 accessories to add more detail. TIP: For tips on how to set up your new FortiFlex tool, CLICK HERE. When carving your piece, be sure not to remove an excessive amount of material so you can drill a 7/32" hole about 1" into your wooden piece on step 4.

STEP 4

Step 4

Finally, you'll need to drill through the bottom of your wood carving. We found detailed instructions for our bottle stopper starter kit here: Woodcraft.com Woodcraft's instructions adjusted for our project: Using a 7/32" bit, drill a 1" deep hole in a piece of wood any size you wish that is longer than the threaded stem on the wine stopper. A few drops of CA glue, or epoxy, in the threaded hole of the wood, prior to screwing it onto the stopper, will securely fix the wood to the stopper. Slide an O-ring (A) into each groove in the stopper body.
