A Girl’s Best Friend

Is a finely crafted power tool!

I spent today with the Ryobi grinder, with the sanding disk as well as my Dremel rotary tool. I so love a nice power tool…

I sanded down both pieces today, which was a breeze with that 4″. I used the Dremel for the tight spots. That bear is now as smooth as baby’s butt. Ready for the cutting off of the form!

I’ll be using a plunge saw for that job. Uh HUH! I can’t tell adequately, what the feel of a quality tool means to me. It’s a thing that is just right. That tool fits in the hand and  is well balanced, making it a pleasure to use.

I also got my fiber optics in the mail yesterday!!! Hurray!

Now I’m waiting for my grout to come. Back order, back order! I so want to check it out!

I’m really pleased with the fiber optics. It’s an LED light generator, and it’s a nice bright white.

My wonderful rotary type tools.

Look at that sanding disk! It’s been a wonderful tool.

Tonight’s the night that I’m casting the bear’s nose. A deep, dark purple that I’m going to paint over with stained glass paint, it’s lovely heat set enamel paint, dark blue. Here’s the nose in the kiln, second cast.
