Dude your my idol.
aintMichael (author)  bobbyk8818 years ago
wow. thanks.
I am trying to make a ring for my girlfriend out of wood directly from the tree and I cut my hand 4 times. ( I'm not blaming you.) It is kind hard but I'm trying my best. But dude you are a great man for posting those instructions. Thank you, bobbyk881
I just dont have the tools that you have.

You could probably do most of this with just a few different size sharp knives, that just means a little more danger. If you aways remember to cut away from yourself you'll minimize the cuts. I have to say though, my thumbs are wrecked from the number of times I've cut them :) Also Christmas is coming, you can always hint that you "desperately need" a Dremel tool :)
i got a dremel and a big pack of bits fo christmas a nd i am just 11!
I am trying to cut the wood with a hand saw and a Dremel. I wish the wood wouldn't crack. But at least I have the same size wood. I think I need a table saw to cut my wood because it takes so long to cut with a hand saw and a dremel. Oh how do you cut the inside out? Thank you, Bobbyk881

I actually just use the largest drill bit that I have to drill out the center hole. Then I use the Dremel with a round grinding bit to make it the right size. If you're using a saw with a replaceable blade you may need a new one if it's that hard. A good blade should go through a tree branch pretty quick.
I think the branch is still a little green. I just found out that I have a ban saw that I may use that to cut the wood. This weekend I might go to Home Depot and get a larger bit. The type of saw I am using is one of those multi purpose tool saws. It takes me hours to cut the wood but thank god I found out that I have a ban saw. Oh what size is you largest bit for the Dremel? Thank you, Bobbyk881

I actually use a regular drill with a 1 1/2" bit for the center hole, but I think i'm going to get something bigger because it takes me a long time to get that hole big enough
Ok thanks for the advice. Bobbyl881

Super cool!! (not the cutting, but that you're making one) Thanks again, if I can give you any hints let me know.
Yay South Park avatars rock!
