Thecompass helped me to draw an exact circle.When I finished marking out the base, Ibegan to cut it with the coping saw. Thecoping saw made it easier for me to cut thelines of the circle. When I was done with thecutting stage, I began to sand with the disksander. In order to prevent my eye from thedust, I put on the goggle, I was safe enoughto be ready to work with the disk sander.Since there was a lot of space to sand, it tookquite a long time for me to finish the process.When I finished with the base, I began to think about how to draw the 12 petals.
