Drawing of circles

With the help of the compass make five circles on the metal. The first with a diameter of 10 cm, the second of 9 cm and gradually reduce the diameter by one centimeter, up to 6 cm for the last circle.


Cut the circles you have just drawn, you will need them to make the rose petals. The work can also be a bit rough at this stage, if there are corners after the cut it is not important, you will go and finish them later.


Take the graver and use it to make a pre-hole and proceed with the drill bit. You can use as a reference the center of the circumference, where you previously pointed the compass. A light blow with the burin will be enough to have the impression and drill easily.

The suggestion is to use a good cordless drill, for example a Bosch with an 18 Volt battery and a 3.25 bit, to define the holes. Place a piece of wood underneath to protect the countertop.
