Walnut vase *PIC*

>Here is the walnut hollow vessel that I saved. I cut through the top while trying to make it thin. I cut the top away and finished thinning it out to the bottom. I didn't like the way it looked so I pierced the top using a dremel. That was a pain. Although you can pierce with the dremel it is slow and you really have trouble controlling the cut. I would highly recommend using the dental type high speed grinders if your going to do this. For the occasional piece the dremel will work. I cut about 6 to 10 holes and then took a break because one miscut and you have potentiallly ruined it.

I also have one of the HF 56K air grinders and it has more power but the cut is still hard to control and it eats up air like it's going out of style. I will probably restrict it's use to hogging off wood, it might fit inbetween the dremel and fordem in power and handling.
