Thanks I’m glad I tried this as a practice first before using the expensive wood. I’ve never used a Dremel before and I’m thinking of ideas to raise the work height.

Some people call me a tool, others are less complimentary. Tools being useful things.

@rocknroller912 could you not just put a piece of sacrificial wood underneath where you’re cutting? At least then you’d also minimise any tear out too. Or have I misunderstood your plan!?

I didn’t explain myself very well again. I meant to raise my work bench up by a lot maybe a foot or more as I’m 6 ft 1 inch tall and working on a folding bench kills my back.

Mark suggests on his videos that you use sanding sealer before cutting out the rosette, as it helps stop any tear out.

You just rag it on around the area you are cutting the rosette out

As well as new bits I think this would help

I did try sanding sealer before cutting and it helped. This is a really cheap piece of wood soft and powdery. I’m sure it will be much better on a quality piece.
