We've featured a member of the brilliant Dremel family here in the past and if you've got a crafty streak within, (or a DIY urge), it's a toolbox addition you may well want to learn more about.
Originally this review (and giveaway) was intended as a Father's Day promotion however things just didn't come together in time. As Christmas is next stop on the horizon, all is not lost! We've a great Dremel giveaway that will make someone very happy this December!
But first, a little crafty post about a very nifty tool.
What is a Dremel 200 Series Two Speed Rotary Tool? Well, it's a rotary tool that is compact, high quality and useful in so many ways for crafters and niggly little repair jobs around the home. With one of these babies, you can carve, engrave, cut, grind, sharpen, clean, polish, sand and other miscellaneous uses - basically you name them - you can probably do them with this.
I'll be honest with you, I lifted those above uses straight off the box because, well, I know zip about tools in general. (Apart from kitchen appliances, where I am really in my happy comfort zone.) And so, the Dremel 200 Series was gifted straight to the man as soon as it arrived with instructions for him to craft something fabulous to demonstrate the fun to be had with this whizz of a device.
All good! His reaction went along the lines of "Unreal!" Being the crafty man he is, he was on a mission to make something fun as soon as the Dremel was out of the box.
Last time we reviewed Dremel, he whipped up a fantastic racing car to impress the kids. The pressure was on him again, to come up with something entirely new and exciting.

I knew he wouldn't fail me.
After foraging in the scrubland at our street's end for around an hour or so, (with the aid of some of the kids of course - because no fabulous babysitting opportunity should ever be ignored), he returned with this chunk of knotted wood he'd carved from a tree. (There were two of them in fact, one of which was literally crawling with termites!)
Again, I'll be honest... I think the toddler's face says it all...
|Nah, really, What the?...|
And from here, I left him to it (backed away actually), while I snuck off to catch up on the latest episode of Humans on iView. (Just love a blogging opportunity that someone else has to take care of for me once in a while!)
I popped back every so often to check on the progress and of course, grab a shot or two of the bowl in the making. There was dust, drilling noises and one very entertained man ploughing away at his creation. Go him!
And then, sometime later, the big unveil...
My man had somehow managed to make his odd little lumps of tree into some superb wood-ware for our home. They were so good in fact, that even the sun shone upon them to show off their polished, smooth, awesomeness!
I am so loving my new nut bowl which replaces the others that I carelessly tossed out recently. I think this one is so much nicer too. (P.S: Hubby is no longer considered a 'nut' either!)
