My Dremel just couldn't take it anymore. I fried the bearings in the poor thing. Decided it was time for an upgrade. So of course that meant I had to update my carving station. Some lighting and an extra outlet got added late last night.

Experimented with the ratios in my resin last night. Probably one of my best topcoat pours to date.
