Feature Story
Spotlight on Dads With Shanty-2-Chic

Robby Anderson
Robby Anderson

Shanty-2-Chic demonstrates how to use your Dremel tool for some fun DIY projects.

The month of June is a time to reflect on how our fathers, grandfathers, uncles and any other fatherly figures have inspired us to become who we are. We asked friends of Dremel, sisters and blogging partners Whitney and Ashley of the Shanty-2-Chic blog how their own father has been a source of inspiration for their creativity and extremely popular DIY projects.

“(Our dad) built Whitney’s current home, and he is always on call for us when we have a DIY dilemma,” the sisters said. “He taught us how to use our miter saws, and we took off from there! He definitely has his own share of projects, but is constantly giving us advice on our projects. From helping us on odd angles to giving us tips on our tools, his advice is invaluable.”

Dads can sometimes be difficult to shop for. When asked how they’ve celebrated Father’s Day for their dad over the years, Whitney and Ashley said one year their family all pitched in and gave him the Dremel 4000 (which they often borrow). They also love creating photo blocks and other fun “guy gifts” for him as well.

A Dremel tool contains four features many of us also see and love in our own father figures: value, leadership, innovation and versatility. Whether he is the family leader or is able to roll with the punches in any situation, it’s no mystery why dads can relate to the Dremel brand.

“Our dad is probably the most innovative person we know,” say Whitney and Ashley. “He can truly fix anything, and the ideas he uses to fix them are often amusing and definitely innovative! He is a jack-of-all-trades and we consider his DIY wisdom priceless!”

For more inspiration and to see Whitney and Ashley’s work with Dremel, like these great Saw-Max and Trio projects, please visit Shanty-2-chic.com.

Dremel MM430 Multi-Knife

At Dremel we pride ourselves in introducing you to the most innovative products on the market, and we’re excited to present two brand new accessories in this issue! The Dremel MM435 Drywall Jab Saw features an offset mounting hole pattern that provides an optimal angle for cutting, while the sharpened tip allows users to easily plunge into drywall, and the Dremel MM430 Multi-Knife has the functionality of a utility knife, except with power and speed. Whether using the Multi-Knife to cut carpet and insulation, or the Drywall Jab Saw to install recessed lighting and electrical outlets, these durable accessories efficiently cut a variety of materials.

Dremel MM435 Drywall Jab Saw
  • Offers the superior solution for making both straight and curved cuts in drywall while using a Multi-Max oscillating tool and is ideal for cutting out electrical boxes and recessed lighting.
  • The teeth of the saw extend further away from the pivot point of the oscillating tool, as compared to the typical half-moon shaped drywall blade. This function makes the speed of cut significantly faster.
  • Cuts faster than other oscillating drywall blades and is the only oscillating blade that makes both straight and curved cuts in drywall.

Dremel MM430 Multi-Knife
  • Features two cutting edges on one accessory with an inside-facing edge designed for cuts requiring a pulling motion and the outside-facing edge is designed for cuts requiring a pushing motion. These dual edges allow users to cut in either direction as the situation requires.
  • Designed to cut carpet, vinyl, boxes, shingles, foam, insulation and plastic.
  • Allows users to hold the material while cutting, and is able to make quick cuts on a variety of difficult-to-cut, flexible materials.

‘Tis the season for relaxing outdoors, Fourth of July barbecues and refreshments on ice. Summer has arrived and is in full swing.

If you’re looking for ways to up the ante on your backyard entertaining this summer, an outdoor bar may be the perfect addition to your patio or yard. While the idea of building it yourself may seem daunting, with the right tools and Dremel’s step-by-step plans, you’ll be serving up summer fun in no time.


To build the bar, here are the tools and supplies we suggest: Once you’re ready to get started, you’ll find printable instructions, a project blueprint and cut lists on Dremel Weekends. Each step includes thorough instructions and visuals to help build and finish an outdoor bar so you can savor the outdoors this summer with friends and neighbors.

Also this month on Dremel Weekends, we’re sharing other backyard project ideas such as making a personal fireplace, building a bag toss game and much more. If you’ve tackled a backyard project this summer using your Dremel tools, we’d love to see it. Please email us or share it on our Facebook page.
