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

Step 1

Use your Dremel rotary tool with the EZ409 cutting wheel to slice a hole just large enough for the chord of your light to string through. Tip: When using the EZ409 wheel (as with most Dremel rotary cutting wheels), set your tool to full speed. Remember to let the speed of the tool do the work and do not apply excess pressure to the portion of the basket you wish to cut. For this project, the tool can be used at full speed <35,000RPM> or . Make sure your hole is just big enough, but won't let the light slip through. Additional Tip: Using baskets of varying sizes for this project can give a more rustic feel.

Tip: Do some shopping in the outdoor section of your home center to find large, low-voltage outdoor string lights that will work best for this project.
