Digilab 3D Printer & Dremel Tool Suite Winner - Don from Albuquerque, NM

"I'm really excited to be the winner of this Dremel Tool Suite. I teach at a local high school and purchase tools out of pocket to use in our wood shop and have purchased two 3D20 3D Printers for the CAD Engineering course I teach. I plan on bringing in these new Drmeel tools for my students to use. My students and I make a lot of toys for children during the holidays and we also give a lot of the toys we make to the Albuquerque Police and Fire Rescue for the children that lose so much. We have a competition between myself and another school to see how many toys they can make, so really the children all win."

 

Digilab Laser Cutter and 3D Printer - Denton from Winchester, VA.

"I was absolutely shocked and overwhelmed with excitement when I heard I was the winner of the grand prize. I entered the sweepstakes daily hoping that I might be lucky enough to win one of the daily instant win prizes, but never expected to be the winner of the DigiLab Suite. My wife and I are living in a senior community with a small Wood Working Shop on campus for use by the residents. The shop provides an outlet for the retired carpenters and craftsmen, as well as services to our seniors to repair furniture and make items for sale to raise funds for charity. To get the most use out of the Dremel DigiLab suite, we plan to donate it to our local high school and they are ecstatic about receiving a Dremel Digilab Suite for their technical education department.

It Could Really Happen!

Check out how last year’s Dremel Maker Days 2017 Grand Prize Winner, Richard Berg have been enjoying their prizes and what it is like to be the Dremel Maker Days Grand Prize Winner.

 

2017 Grand Prize Winner Richard Berg shares his story:

When I first saw the email about winning the grand prize, I could not believe it to be true. I was shocked because, and I'm sure you hear this A LOT, I never win anything.  It was not until the UPS guy came with that big, beautiful box that I realized that I was not dreaming. Living in a rural town, tech does not make it inroads into home as quickly as I would like, so I was eager to unpack the tools, especially the Dremel DigiLab 3D45 3D Printer.

We quickly unboxed the 3D45 Printer and in minutes we started our first print. Having no real history or knowledge of 3D printing we were happy to find that there were preloaded print files that came with the printer.  Hours, days and weeks of printing later I never ceased to continue learning from each of my prints. I was and still am in seventh heaven with my Dremel 3D printer.

I am excited to start my next project and utilize even more of the Dremel tools I won. I am excited to participate in the ongoing Maker Days celebration this year, to inspire makers out there just like me who love playing around with new tech and tools!

A Look Back at Haven Conference 2018

Dremel at Haven Conference 2018, A Look Back

The best advice we heard came from Yvonne Pratt from Stone Gable Blog.  “Haven is like a fire hose and you need to put your face in front of it to drink in as much as you can.”  In July, the team traveled to Charleston for the Haven Conference, a DIY and Decorating conference where we had the opportunity to connect with a fun and enthusiastic group of passionate makers and bloggers.   

 

To stand out and make this our biggest presence yet, we partnered with Gorilla Glue and got crafty with the Haven Mavens to do a few projects throughout the weekend. The tool of choice to take these crafts to the next level, was the new Dremel 2050 Stylo+!  .

 

We had so much fun meeting the Mavens & hearing your great feedback on the Stylo+. We’re providing all the Haven attendees (and your followers) an exclusive discount for the Stylo+ to get you making!  Use coupon code “10HAVENSTYLO” to get $10 off the new Dremel Stylo+ when you shop on Amazon.com. This offer expires on September 30 so be sure to share out this exclusive deal with your friends & followers and look like a hero doing so!

A Look Back at the Hype at Haven

 Check out our favorite moments from the weekend and learn how you can recreate the Kitchen Sign project from home as featured in our hands-on-demo session.

Day One

We jumped into Haven with a wide array of activities for every type of crafter. Our Make and Take featured glass etching with the new Stylo+ engraving tool in combination with making cork succulent magnets with Gorilla’s hot glue. Mavens also got an intimate walkthrough of the new Dremel Versa Power Cleaner and DigiLab Laser Cutter.

Day Two

As if the first day was not action packed enough, we held a Hands-On Session with Jenn Largesse from Build Basic who led the Kitschy Kitchen Sign project. Each participant could choose from a laser engraved stencil featuring a fun kitchen pun or a blank MDF template for those who wanted to get extra crafty. From there participants engraved & customized their designs using the Dremel Stylo+. Something that picture perfect needs to be framed right? Afterwards everyone grabbed a Dremel Saw Max to cut a barn wood frame and glue together using Gorilla Glue’s new Dual Temp Mini Glue Gun

Create a Personalized Mother’s Day Gift in Less Than 1 hour!

Average (0 Votes)

To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.

Remember the days of handcrafting that scribble and macaroni masterpiece for Mother’s Day? Your mom was always so smitten with your creative gift! A lot has changed since then, but when finding that meaningful Mother’s Day gift, one thing has always stayed true: It is the thought that counts. Show your mom how much you care by creating a personalized gift that she will love to use! It’s time to roll up your sleeves and bring back the handcrafted gift (with an upgrade)! In less than one hour, you can personalize a glass jar using the Dremel Stylo+ for a Mother’s Day gift worthy of proud mom bragging rights!

What you will need:

  • Glass cookie jar
  • Printed design (scaled to size to best fit in the height of the jar)
  • Erasable marker
  • Tape
  • Dremel rotary tool (I used the Dremel Stylo+)
  • Dremel accessory (I used the 953. You can use a grinding stone or diamond wheel point of your preference)
  • Eye protection
  • Respiratory mask

 

Step 1:

Tape the design to the inside of the jar. Make sure the design is straight and centered.

Step 2:

Trace the design with an erasable marker. (This step is optional, but recommended) I have found it’s easier to etch the design when it is drawn directly onto the surface you’re etching. You’ll notice that the space between the printed design and the glass can cause misalignment when looking at the jar from different angles. If you do trace the design in marker, remove the printed design from the inside of the jar.

Step 3:

Load the accessory into the tool and securely fasten using lock button and wrench, included with the tool.

Step 4:

Put on your safety glasses and dust mask, choose your desired speed (I used 4) and begin to etch the outline using your Dremel rotary tool. The reason I love Stylo+ so much is that the slim design makes it easy to hold and control.

Helpful Hint: Have a paper towel handy to wipe the jar clean as you go; it will remove the dust so you can see the design more clearly

Step 5:

If you have remnants of black marker around your design, simply use paper towel and wipe down to remove. Clean your jar and vacuum your work area to remove any residue.

 

Final Step:

Fill the jar with something sweet and tell your mom how much you love her.

Let us know what other fun project you think your Mom would love!

Mission to Make: Jamison Rantz Interview

Average (0 Votes)

Dremel Mission Maker Jamison Rantz from Rogue Engineer completed his final 2017 mission by creating a project that was crowd-sourced from Makers like you! Check out his unique clear picture frames featuring a rock base cut with a Dremel Saw-Max project here. In the middle of this busy time of year, he finished the Dremel Mission while working on building his family’s dream home and managed to carve out some time to answer some of our questions!

Can you tell our readers a little bit about yourself and your work?

I’m a former aerospace engineer gone rogue. I started building and designing furniture in my spare time, which then turned into something I was able to do full time. I create free and easy DIY project plans that anyone can tackle.

What does it mean to you to be a Dremel Mission Maker?

To me, being a Dremel Mission Maker means inspiring others to work with their hands, whether that’s building furniture or making a piece of jewelry, being a maker is pursuing a passion and creating something with your own hands.

What’s the best thing you’ve accomplished/experienced while on your Mission to Make with Dremel?

The best thing I’ve experienced on my Mission to Make with Dremel is connecting with people like myself and helping to inspire others to find their own mission to make.

What sort of tools do you find yourself using the most?

The tools I find myself using the most are my saws. Almost every project being with cutting wood, and you need to have the right saw to do the job.

Where do you find your inspiration?

I get most of my inspiration from my family, whatever project we need for the house or just building something that will make my kids smile.

What would you say to someone who’s just starting to tackle more DIY projects?

For someone who is just starting to tackle more DIY projects I would say to just keep trying. Everyone starts somewhere, and nothing is always perfect, but the important part is that you get out there and do it.

Best tip you want our readers to know?

Mission to Make: Amy Bell Interview

Average (0 Votes)

Can you tell our readers a little bit about yourself and your work?

Creativity has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember! My dad was an accomplished oil painter, and some of my first memories are of watching my mom as she worked her magic at her sewing machine. I founded my blog, PositivelySplendid.com, in 2010, with a dream to inspire others to harness their innate creative potential. Each day at Positively Splendid, you can find me knee-deep in my latest project, with ideas ranging from seasonal and home decor projects to sewing tutorials, craft ideas and recipes. It has been a fun ride, and I feel like if I have helped even just a handful of people try something they never would have dreamed to attempt before, my blogging career has been a success!

What does it mean to you to be a Dremel Mission Maker?

My goal as a Mission Maker really is to inspire people to be fearless about trying new things and taking creative risks. Dremel tools really are so accessible and easy to use, no matter your level of experience!

What’s the best thing you’ve accomplished/experienced while on your Mission to Make with Dremel?

No doubt, my favorite part of my Mission to Make was spending time at the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago, working alongside the amazing people from Dremel and Sculpey to host a make and take booth. It was inspiring to see people from so many walks of life--young kids all the way up to adults--experiencing the satisfaction that comes from making something to be proud of with their own two hands.

What sort of tools do you find yourself using the most?

It is so hard to choose just one! Right now, I have to say I am most obsessed with my Saw-Max tool. I am in the process of doing a revamp of our home's dining room, and that saw has made the trimwork so much easier to manage. I don't know how I ever lived without it!

Where do you find your inspiration?

The longer I have blogged, the more I have seen that old trends almost always make a resurgence. The macramé and weaving from the 70's are a perfect example of this! Those old, tried-and-true techniques are now totally fresh and current again. I love to scour thrift stores for old magazines, crafting books and cookbooks to find inspiration for ways I can breathe new life into old trends.

What’s your favorite project of all time?

My youngest child's nursery, hands down. Nearly every single project in that room was a DIY of some sort, from the crib bedding set and drapes to the painted antique dresser I found for a bargain just a month before his arrival. All of the moments I spent rocking my son in that room made the hard work worth it!

What would you say to someone who’s just starting to tackle more DIY projects?

Be fearless! Try new things, and don't be afraid to fail. Some of the best projects I've ever tackled have only been made possible through the things I've learned from my failures in the past.

Best tip you want our readers to know?

When it comes to using any new tool, always practice a bit to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of how the tool works before starting your actual project. This will help you achieve the most polished results without having to stress about possible missteps right out of the gate!

Meet the Maker: Allison Murray

Average (0 Votes)

Allison Murray is an inspiring Maker with a knack for creating fun fashion accessories. She's also handy with a Dremel rotary tool and eager to share her knowledge and enthusiasm for creating cool DIY gifts this holiday season. 

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog? How did you get into making? 

I've been making things since childhood. I'd sit on the storm cellar door with my grandfather painting birdhouses in between board games and singing old country tunes. My grandmother was always good about encouraging me to color and we'd design models with fancy clothes together. 

My mom created the Busy Bee Craft Club for me and my friends and we'd make reindeer out of clothespins or tie dye dresses out of little boy's undershirts. To this day, my family is a bunch of Makers, myself included. 

Do you have any tips for creating DIY gifts this holiday season? 

Gifts are one of my favorite things to make. In the past my family and I actually had handmade Christmas celebrations where the only gifts that were allowed were handmade. My father made us replica pirate guns one year! 

I think that as long as your heart is in the right place, a handmade gift is always appreciated, but it doesn't hurt to think of what the person likes or needs. Do they cook a lot? Maybe decoratively burn the handles on some bamboo cooking utensils. Are they a fashionista? Why not make a one-of-a-kind pair of earrings? 

With the internet there are endless tools, tutorials and videos to help you make whatever you think they would like the best. 

What's one tool that's always at your desk or workbench? 

The tool that is always nearby is the Buck knife my father gave to me after I told him I had started a website and that I was going to try to make a living out of it. I was scared to tell him because I had been laid off and tried the self-employed thing before. Since he'd come to my rescue with my mortgage a good number of times during those days, I worried that he would be disappointed in me. Instead he gave me the knife from his pocket to take as my own to help me with my projects and find my own way in life. 

How do you incorporate Dremel tools into your work? 

I incorporate Dremel tools into my work to speed things up. I hate sanding down little bits of metal with a jewelry file. It’s so monotonous and boring. My Dremel rotary tool really helps me get through these things quickly and easily. 

If you could work on any project — assuming money and time weren't an issue — what would you make? 

If time and money were no issue, I'd want to take an old house and fix it up. I had a little bit of experience with that in the first home I purchased, but finances always meant that projects were delayed or the budget was much smaller than I would have liked. Luckily, with the help of my dad, we were able to fix my old house up into a little ranch-style thing of beauty! I'd love to have the opportunity again without financial constraints. 

Do you have any advice for new Makers who just picked up a Maker Kit and are ready to dive in and start creating? 

Hit up Pinterest! You might feel a bit intimidated, but if you go to Pinterest you can find a million projects to use with each of those tools. When you can follow a project with a step by step, it will boost your confidence using any tool. Before you know it you'll be bringing your own crafty ideas into reality!

From Our Mission Maker: Hatch Your Own Friends Craft Night

Average (0 Votes)

Dremel Mission Maker Amy Bell of Positively Splendid hosted her own Craft Night recently when she provided her friends with Dremel Hatch Kits so they could create their own Skyline wall art. Instead of going to a movie or watching television, Amy provided a fun way to reconnect with her girlfriends and take a break from all things digital.

Because everything you need is conveniently packaged together for you, including the wood pallet sign, paint, brushes, stencils and more, Dremel Hatch Kits take the guesswork out of putting together a fun friends craft night. To help you out, Amy has provided a few tips to help you host your own Dremel Hatch Kit night on her blog Positively Splendid.

According to Amy, seeing her friends create a work of art and take pride in their creation made the Dremel Hatch Kit night a fun event. “I love the idea of turning this into a girls’ night, inviting friends to sip and munch while they create,” Amy said. “The beauty of the Dremel Hatch Project Kits is that they enable you to conveniently have all you need to complete the project from start to finish, which means you’ll have plenty of time to prep and host a party everyone is sure to enjoy!”
