I love being able to give custom items for wedding gifts. There’s just something about getting a gift that helps commemorate your special day. This summer my brother-in-law got married and I decided to make an engraved wooden spoon for them.
The Dremel® Micro™ 8050 tool was the perfect tool for this project. The Micro 8050 is the most “brilliantly powerful” and precise cordless rotary tool that Dremel has made.
I purchased a simple wooden spoon with a thick handle so there would be plenty of space. I used a word processing program to create the text I wanted on the spoon.
With a sharp pencil I traced over the lettering… pressing into the spoon so I would be able to see it.
Then I used this Dremel tip…
The Dremel® Micro™8050 is light weight and super easy to handle… they had crafters, hobbyists and DIYers in mind when they designed this one. It has a soft grip, LED front-end lighting to illuminate the project you are working on, a docking station that continually charges, and an 8V Max Lithium-ion battery. With the Micro 8050 you can cut, carve, engrave, sand, grind, sharpen, clean and polish… this is one powerful little tool!
I slowly went over my traced lines. I used the medium-low speed first and then went over the lines again on a medium speed to make the engraving deeper.
I went over the lines about 3 times to get the look you see here.
Place the engraved wooden spoon in a cute wired basket with some kitchen towels, kitchen gadgets and some favorite recipes and you have a great custom wedding gift idea.
My new sister-in- law is a great cook too, so hopefully she’ll create some memorable meals with her memorable spoon.
