Anatomy Of A Box
How To Cut A GREAT Circle
Wanting to add a vintage "cabinet photo" to the mix, I needed to drill a hole into the photo with one of these circular drill bits. These bits are fantastic! They come in different sizes and are a great solution to your "circle cutting needs." They will cut through wood, cardboard, old photos, etc.
The circle is a little rough around the edges at first.
It can easily be gently sanded around the edges for a nice effect.
I just happen to have some of these metal "washers" which happen to fit perfectly over the circle (glued on with silicon), but the sanded hole looks great with or without this washer.
I wanted an old medicine tin displayed under the photo to show through the hole. I've also added little wooden "floaters" on the sides to lift the photo up off the floor of the box...the tin fits perfectly.
Each side of this piece is covered with glass.
