Have you seen all of the awesome creations Jamie and Mandi have been making over at Vintage Revivals? Living in the land of the bison, I am in love with this geometric bison:

I’ve had this simple wood tray for a long time and it just needed a little something. I decided I would use my Dremel Micro to create an etched geometric bison tray.
I started by printing the VR Bison and taping it to my tray.
Then I used a pen and pressed hard to trace the image, lightly etching it into the tray.
Then I got out my Dremel micro with the sanding attachment and started etching the design
Once total darkness hit I moved inside to the kitchen. I really started getting the hang of using the sander to etch and got into my “Dremel Groove”.
Once I had made a thick line around the perimeter, then I started etching the geometric lines on the inside of the bison. There was a small learning curve, and by the time that I had etched the entire design I was pretty good with controlling the Dremel Micro. I’d say it took about 30 minutes of etching.
I am SO happy with the way that my etched geometric bison tray turned out. It brings my love of vintage wood, North Dakota, and DIY projects all together.
