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.

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.

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.
