I have a very long list of projects to complete around the house. Well, who doesn't. From time to time I get to work on one that I really enjoy doing. This is where I will share some of those with you.

First up, I just finished this for my niece's 21st Birthday.

Start with a piece of wood:

Next Tape and stencil:

As you can guess she's a pretty big Harry Potter fan. But then again so am I. So I made 2 in case I screwed the first up, and got to keep one.

Cheers mate.

To do the carving I used a dremel. I have the extension cable for more precision work, and picked up a wood carving bit kit from local hardware store.
