Well xmas is here & i'm hard at it in the shed making a couple of xmas pressies. I'm just about to start on a jewlery box for my sister in law & i'd like to carve her name in the lid with a router or a dremmel tool but i've never done anything like this before.
What i've been thinking of trying is to mount a router on a fixed stand with a clear perspex base so that i can move the piece of timber free hand under the router that has a either a 'V' bit or very small cove bit mounted into it.
The main concern i have is the router bit grabbing the board & pulling it off the line i'd be following.
The other thought was to use a dremmel tool & carve the name free hand which would probably have similar problems.
Another thought that i've had with this carving project is once the name has been carved out, to fill it with a finely ground blue stone like turquoise mixed in an epoxy.
I'm probably biting off more than i can chew with this project but then that me all the way, always jumping in with both feet then figure out if i can swim after. lol
OK so can somebody else point me in the right direction to do this sort of work. Clearly i have no idea on this subject & after an hour of searching 'signs' i now know it can be done but still no idea on methods/ problems/ best tools for the job.
A little more info than "search for signs" would be appreceated.
