1. Draw your designs onto pieces of 12mm Supawood. The easiest way to cut out the shapes is with a jigsaw and fretsaw blade. This blade is shorter and narrower than a standard cutting blade and allows you to manoeuver around corners and curves.

2. A Dremel Multitool with sanding ring is perfect for sanding around and smoothing once you have cut out the design. If you don't own a Dremel Multitool, use 120-grit sandpaper.
