Ditch your Router, Jigsaw and Sander for the Dremel Trio

Crafty geeks will appreciate the new Dremel Trio multi-tool. It can sand, cut and rout materials including wood, plastic, drywall, sheet metal, wall tile and more without switching tools. It has a non-marring base and is capable of a speed range of 10,000 – 20,000 rpm. I think this tool might come in handy for my new hobby of making Cigar Box Guitars. It’s available now from Amazon for $99.

    Julie I’d be interested in learning more about your Cigar Box Guitars!

    @Bob I haven’t even completed my first one yet ;) But it’s very close. This first one is very primitive. It actually uses eye bolts as tuners. I got the instructions from this site:

    I hope you post a few pictures of it when you get it completed!

    It’s not 100% completed. The action is way too high. I need to work on that this weekend. :)

    @Julie
    So this is a three string guitar; interesting. I like how you used brass bolts for the bridges and the eye bolts for the tuners; simplistic but very clever.
    I see your kitty couldn’t resist being in the pics :)

    @Bob Thanks! But for full disclosure, I didn’t invent the eye bolt idea. I got the plans online :)
