Check Twice, Drill Once (preferably from the front…)

Casein Scrimshaw drilled at the bottom by mistakeI was setting up the “Sun Motif” scrimshaw I had created on a casein cabochon and decided I should go ahead and drill the one-off light house to put on a chain as well.  Carefully measuring I marked the back and drilled a hole through – on the bottom.  Oops. Oh well, sour grapes, we’ll see how it holds up to a second sanding.

 

The sun came out better, checked and sure enough, I’d marked it at the bottom instead of the top.  Think drilling face-up should be my preferred method.
