More or less by occasion as I searched for something original I could craft myself, I decided to craft a walnut jewelry box for the proposal. It went well! :-)
For this purpose I had bought a rotary tool accompanied with a set of drill and sandpaper bits.
Now I ask myself how to explore and study more what I could do with this rotary tool but in a more systematic way than jumping from one YT tutorial to another.
I like the wording from the Arts&Crafts movement regarding exposing the natural beauty of materials. While I am not a great artist, I think I could learn to craft more or less simple things.
Local makers DIY shop has more electronics/hardware background than arts and crafts. Maybe there is a good entry level book to start with?
