Electric tools

A creative hobby can make use of many different materials and tools. If, for example, you are working with wood, you can make your project extra special by decorating it with an electric burner. You might need a tool to heat up your material, or perhaps you want to engrave something beautiful into the project you are working on.

Whatever your needs are, we have the electric tool you’re looking for. Our electric tools are all approved for hobby use and are easy to use. Remember that young children should not use electric tools alone, as they become very hot. It can also be a good idea to have a sturdy mat underneath, so you can protect your table as much as possible when using any electric tools.

Electric tools for hobbies

Using electric tools for your creative hobby significantly expands your possibilities. Whether you use an electric burner, a heat gun or an engraving machine, they give you the opportunity to do something with your projects that you wouldn't be able to do without an electric tool.

Your hobby might also involve an electric drill or screwdriver, which also makes it easier to do some things. If you're making a birdhouse, an electric screwdriver is a good idea, unless you want to use a hammer to connect the wood pieces together. 

Perhaps you or your children might like to decorate the lovely birdhouse afterwards with an electric burner. An electric burner allows you to draw or write directly in the wood. And you can easily add colour if you want to paint your project. One thing certainly doesn't necessarily exclude the other.

At Creativ Company you can also find stamps for your electric burner, so you can burn fine patterns or letters and numbers into your project. This enables you to use an electric burner, even if you don't have the steadiest of hands. It is almost impossible to make mistakes using the stamps.

Electric tools for hobby use

Who can remember the distinctive smell of burnt wood from the woodwork room when you burnt your name or figures in the wood on the sign you made for mum and dad? You can replicate this very same smell in your own living room. An electric burner gives you the opportunity to create the most beautiful projects and have plenty of fun too.

An electric burner is ideal for burning into all types of wood. It can also be used for burning into other materials, such as leather or thick paper. However, you need to be careful if you want to use it in plastic. It will melt and could damage your burner if it sticks to the tip.

In the event of an accident, you can buy new tips so that you can replace the old one with a completely new and fresh tip.

At Creativ Company you can also buy engraving machines for hobby use and tips for the machines. Engraving machines can be used to engrave text or motifs into wood, but also many other harder materials. For example, you can use the engraving machine to engrave metal, stone and porcelain.

Remember to use the right tip for the material you will be working with. This will help you avoid ruining your machine and your hobby project.

Read on and get a few tips on easy and enjoyable projects that use electric tools.

If you love homemade decorations, it’s easy to make your own. You can either go into a forest and find a suitable branch to cut into slices, or you can buy wooden slices on this page. When you have your nice slices of wood, which only become more charming by being a little crooked and perhaps still having bark on, you need to decorate them.

It can be a good idea to start by drilling a hole for the string on the side you want to face upwards. This means you will avoid having to drill into your lovely decoration. Once you have drilled a hole, you can get started with your electric burner. You can either draw freehand or sketch a fine pencil line of whatever you had imagined. You can draw or write exactly whatever suits you and your idea. Maybe it’s for Christmas or Easter decorations? Maybe it’s for an everyday decoration or a key ring for someone special? Either way, only your imagination sets the limits for how you decorate your wooden slices. 

If you are looking for outdoor projects, you might like to decorate an insect hotel or a birdhouse with your electric burner. Or maybe you have a doll house that needs a little extra decoration. Or perhaps you can build your own mini-house from popsicle sticks and bring it to life with beautiful decorations.

Valuable peacefulness in everyday life with creative immersion

When we are creative, it makes space for immersion, which in turn gives our bodies and minds the peace they need. It is important to give yourself a break during a hectic every day, when your mind does not have to be occupied thinking about plans and packed lunches or homework. When you can just let go and see what comes out of it. Or you can find the space for a project that's been brewing in your mind for a long time. What a wonderful feeling it is, when you find the time and opportunity to bring that project to life.

Maybe you can move your projects outside? Then you can kill two birds with one stone. Enjoy being creative whilst you get some fresh air for your body and mind. You might want to make a handful of signs with your electric burner that feature small messages or instructions. Set them up outside and make a route or treasure hunt for each other with the signs. Perhaps they could be small, sweet messages that people encounter on the way round. Happy creating!
