Tutorial #5, Drilling Stone Bases

Tutorial #5, Easily Drilling Holes in Stone Bases!

Almost every sculpture we make is mounted to some type of base. Sometimes wood or steel, but usually granite or marble. You could send a template to the stone base company, and pay them to drill the holes, but in our experience, it is easier to drill them yourself, and be sure they are in the right spot. Check out the video to see just how easy it is. All of the materials and resources will be in the show notes below. Now Drill Baby, Drill!

We forgot to mention it in the video, but you can use a hand drill to drill these holes. You will just want to make sure you are drilling straight down into the stone base, and not tipping the drill so that the hole is crooked.
