Cleaning a Grill

Age, heavy use, and weather can leave your barbecue grill with a dull finish and rusted. Get ready for a new grilling season with a fresh-looking grill when you use your Dremel rotary tool to prepare it for painting and remove cooking residue. Tip: If you scrub the hot cooking grate with a grill brush immediately after cooking you will minimize grime build-up.

Making a Gourd Birdhouse

An 8" diameter gourd will provide enough room for most birds. A 1 3/8" hole is suitable for wrens, titmouses and nuthatches. A 1 5/8" hole is suitable for bluebirds, swallows and some woodpeckers. A 2" hole is suitable for purple martins and most woodpeckers. If the gourd is thick, you will need to get through the shell gradually with a less aggressive, more frequent pass. Two coats of spray polyurethane each year will help protect your gourd birdhouse from the elements.

Making Terra Cotta Luminaries

When working through the terra cotta, it is best to wear the terra cotta away with a less aggressive, more frequent pass. It is not possible to plunge the bit through the terra cotta. You can paint the terra cotta in seasonal colors or leave it natural. You can turn a terra cotta pot upside down over a terra cotta saucer to create a covered luminary.
