The best part of this tutorial is how with the information shown how easy it is to drill a hole, where you want it! Whether the hole is in a finished piece, a pre-form or a tumbled stone, MarZees Jim Barzee takes us through all the steps.
Our favorite chapter is the last one, What Not to Do.
In it, Jim Barzee helps out with great tips on guide holes and on how to avoid blasting out through the back end of your stone. A tip worth the price of the DVD because who really wants to have to clean up a finished piece because of harried post finish hole drilling.
