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.
Start by finding a detailed drawing of an owl to use as a reference. Sketch the outline of the owl on a 28" x 28" size piece of 1/4" plywood.
Use a variable skill jigsaw to cut out the owl. Then, sketch the details used from your detailed drawing onto the cutout shape with a pencil.
Carve out the details with your Dremel 108 engraving cutter and the Dremel 3000 Rotary Tool, while keeping the speed set to 5.
Apply wood stain to both the front and the back of the owl. Allow the stain to dry.
Use craft paints to decorate your owl to your personal taste. Hang or display the owl to lend some fall flair to your home!
