Every holiday season, my wife complains about how we don't have any cool handmade ornaments to hang on our Christmas tree. This year I agreed to finally start the tradition of making the members of our family a new ornament each year.
I made a replica of my wife's Kitchen Aid stand mixer for her, and a copy of my cordless drill for myself.
I began this project with just a few bits of scrap wood, and after many hours of work, these are what I ended up with. I hope you like them. Thanks for taking the time to check this out.
Step 1: Shaping the drill
The drill was fairly straight-forward, so I'll begin with it.
I drew out the shape of a drill on some scrap material, and used a jigsaw to cut it out. I used my rotary tool to further carve down the shape. Sanding attachments were used to smooth out the shape, and it was finish sanded by hand.
Clamps were used to carefully hold down the item to my table as I worked on it.
