My wife and I are lucky enough to own a beach hut on the south coast of England. The beach is a mass of rocks and stones. I have always wanted to try to carve the stones as a beach side hobby. However these stones are way too hard to carve withe a chisel. My growing competence with the Parkside cordless Dremel type grinder has given me a way to try this.
This first effort was done entirely on a whim. I did not plan or think through the design. It was truly great fun, I picked a day when the wind was howling off the seas and the waves crashing onto the beach. Normally on a day like this we would head for home after the first cup of tea,but once I started carving I just had to finish
And it was great fun!
I am well aware that this little doodle is no work of art, but the fact that I managed to engrave anything on this hard stone was very encouraging, and I genuinely enjoyed the experience.
I will be doing a lot more of this, hopefully my skills will improve and eventually you may see something that will inspire you to have a go! So watch this space!
