Dremel Hatch: A Wood Project Kit that comes with everything you need

Ever buy a project kit that told you it had “everything you need” or to “just add imagination?” Ever become get really, really upset when you opened that kit and it did not, in fact, come with everything you need? Yeah. Us too.

So when Dremel® said they had a wood crafting project kit that included everything you need, our interests were piqued. Incoming the Dremel Hatch Project!

We told them we were curious, and they sent us one to check out—a pallet wood wall art project called Skyline. We immediately went to work inspecting every single tiny little thing about it.

Our conclusion? It’s the best thing that’s happened to craft night since the embroidery hoop.

Overstatements aside, it lives up to everything we were told, and you’ll know it as soon as you pick one up.

The first thing you’re going to notice is the box. It’s not just another cardboard box, it’s actually part of the project. It’s the workspace. Really!

The inside of the package is gridded like graph paper, so you can line things up and measure them without using a ruler. One half of the box folds flat and the other turns into a stand you can use to hold your directions and there’s even a cut-out holder for your phone.

The phone holder is one of our favorite parts. It’s a huge plus for those who like to share our projects online. It will hold your cell phone right over the top of your project, so you can stream your progress, record for editing later, or take time-lapse shots. All without taking your hands off of your project.

What’s inside?

  • A wood pallet
  • wood practice pieces
  • paint
  • paint brushes
  • markers
  • a pencil
  • chalk
  • an eraser
  • a picture hanging kit
  • sandpaper
  • transfer paper
  • templates of the city skylines of Chicago and New York City
  • plus, you get an online code to get templates for 80 more major cities.

The only thing you need to supply is a stable surface to hold your box. So you can do this practically anywhere you want. If you got one kit for each of your guests, you could host a crafting party at the park or the beach just as easily as hosting one at your house.

The last thing you get with the kit (one thing that isn’t on that materials list) is inspiration.

Dremel® knows you want to really personalize this. So they’ve included suggestions on how to make it your own using other crafting and woodworking techniques like burning, sanding, and routing.

Something else you don’t see on that materials list? A Dremel® tool. And that’s because you don’t need one. Sure, you can use one if you’d like, but you don’t have to have one to get this project done.

And this is just the first kit they’ve released. The next box is projected to be out around the holiday season of 2017. That gives us plenty of time to practice taking our skyline projects to the next level.

We think we’re going to try the string-art version of Los Angeles next. Buy your very own Dremel Hatch Project Kit Online now or available in stores on March 10, 2017.

#MyOSHProject: Make a Container Fountain in 7 Easy Steps

Potted container fountain.

Few things are more soothing than the sound of falling water. You can create your own fountain from almost any kind of outdoor-ready container. All you need is a few hours out of an afternoon, and a trip to your neighborhood Orchard Supply Hardware store.

What you’ll need:

Outdoor Ceramic Pottery

Outdoor Ceramic Pottery

Pond Boss® LIT Container Fountain Kit

Other items to consider:

Pond Boss® Pond and Stone Sealant, Safety Goggles, Original Mud® Gloves, 40-ft 16/3 Indoor/Outdoor Extension Cord, Western Hawk™ 12-Volt Drill Kit, Mission Concrete Products Cobble Top Paver, Pebble Rock or Water Plants

Instructions:

TIP: Clay pots will need to be water sealed. Spray the inside with 2 to 3 coats of the sealant. Be sure to let dry between coats.

  1. Select a spot. For convenience, choose a spot that has easy access to an electrical outlet for the pump. If the perfect place isn’t close to an outlet, don’t forget an extension cord.
  2. Pick a pot. The sky’s the limit here. Just make sure that it’s wide and deep enough to accommodate the pump.
  3.   Drill a hole in the bottom on the planter using the 1.24-in drill bit. This is for the pump cord.
  4. Place the pump inside the planter, running the cord through the freshly drilled hole.
  5. Use the rubber stopper on the cord to plug the hole.
  6. Fill your planter with water until the pump is fully submerged. The Pond Boss® is great because it lets you choose from several spray options.
  7. Plug in the pump and your serene scene is complete.

Pro Tips: Wear safety goggles while operating any electrical tool and place a paving stone under the planter to elevate it and allow the cord to move freely.

Now you’re ready to make your container fountain even more personal with decorative stones and water plants. Ask any Nursery associate for advice.

#Projectosh Nuts About Jewelry? Create Jewelry with Everyday Hardware

Sometimes hardware is just hardware. But in crafty hands it can become a necklace, bracelet, or any bolty-y bling you can think of. With more fasteners than you can imagine plus all the materials you’ll need in our store, you’ll have enough wearable hardware for any occasion.

Check out the styles we created here or explore our metallic treasure and let your imagination shine.

Hardware Chevron Necklace

ChevronNecklace

What You’ll Need:

  • 8-10 corner braces (Zinc and Plated Brass)
  • 32.5-ft twisted mason line.

Instructions:

  1. Stack desired amount of corner braces together. Thread a 4-ft line through both holes so that you’re left with an even length on each side.
  2. Tie a double knot at the top of the stack on each side so that the corner braces stay together snugly. Make sure at least a foot and a half of line remains on both sides.
  3. Tie the ends together in a secure knot (Make no more than two knots for optimal comfort). Cut off any excess length.

Hardware Hexnut Bracelet

Hexnut Bracelet

What You’ll Need:

  • 3 strands cut into 1-yd pieces
  • 18 small brass hex nuts

Instructions:

  1. Gather the 3 strands of twine and tie a knot at the top, leaving about 2 inches of slack. Start braiding. Begin braiding in the nuts around 1-in down.
  2. Before you bring the far left strand over the middle one, slip on a nut, push it against the base of the braid, and cross over.
  3. Before bringing far right strand over middle one, slip on another nut, push it against base of braid and cross over. Remember to hold thumb against base of braid to keep nuts in place. Repeat step 2.
  4. Repeat the steps, by threading the rest of the nuts to the outer pieces of twine before they are crossed over. Thread, cross, thread, cross. Finish the bracelet with another inch of braided twine and a knot.

Tip: Add some extra bling with a quick coat of gold spray paint.

Before braiding, place nuts on an old newspaper and coat once with spray can. Let nuts dry, flip them over, and repeat.
