Let's Get Started

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.

STEP 1

Outline the Pot

Choose a pot that is the size you want and place it face down on your countertop in the area you plan to install it and trace the bin. If your bin has handles you can cut them off easily with the Dremel® 4300 and the metal cutting wheel. TIP: Make sure the diameter of the saucepan is no bigger than 12 inches, which is the maximum length of the Dremel circle cutter.

STEP 2

Cut a Perfect Circle

First, put on your face mask and safety glasses because it’s time to cut a perfect circle! (Don’t worry it’s easier than you’d think) For this step, you will want to attach the Dremel circle cutter attachment and cutting but 561 to your Dremel 4300 rotary tool. Set the circle cutter attachment to half diameter of your circled outline, and drill a hole in the middle of the circle to act as your guide. From there trace your outline to fully cut out the circle.

STEP 3

Smooth it out

To round off the edges, sand them thoroughly with the Dremel EZ407SA Sanding Drum so that the pot fits nicely into the countertop. Once finished, place the lid in position, clean off your countertop and you’re all set!
