dragn, that is AWESOME!!!

Think about selling these on Etsy!

I sure would love to see what other hobbies everyone else has.
I've thought that folks who cook are creative and talented
in more than using food as a medium.

So I've discovered the 2 diamond heads are actually larger than my engraving bit. So now I've ordered and even smaller bit - think it is the smallest they make. A lot of the eggs one sees on the 'net are actually larger than mine. My geese are considered medium size geese and their eggs are correspondingly medium sized eggs!
Of course I have to pick designs not meant for smaller eggs

I was worried about rough edges until I enlarged quite a few pictures and saw that they were rough as well.
The ones that don't have the roughness and more intrinsic tiny designs use thos power machines that I can't afford...

So I'll just satisfy myself with what I've got..
and Thanks but No Kgirl. There are many out there more professional than I who sell - I don't think I could take the pressure and mine don't even come close to compare. I just make them 'cause I want to.

Well, I'm thinking there are:

dollhouse miniatures
fishing tackle artists
rock painting
miniature doll clothes

for starters..

Don't we have an old thread where people talked about their current creative projects?

I found the old thread. It hasn't been used for a while: What Else Are You Making?

:
Maybe a fine burr? There are some tiny ones in my kit. They wouldn't fit in tiny corners, but should otherwise. There's even a diamond one that is cone shaped that the point would fit in fairly small corners.

taxy - I just spent almost an hour reading that post and still haven't finished!

medtran - a lot of the pictures (most of them I'm guessing) have, of course, disappeared - thanks photobucke?

Your Cluny Tapestry, Sense of Hearing - I looked it up, got Wiki and saw a tapestry... are you kidding me????? Please post a picture again? please?

I will,, I need to retake though because I have no clue where they are stored. You have to realize though that it's only about 5x6 inches. However, at 42 stitches per linear inch, that's over 53,000 stitches!

Tired of blowing out eggs just to have to scramble them? Still want the shells?

Intense method for poaching eggs...
