    I have a hand held Dremmel that I like to use for various projects and it works very well for drilling, carving, cutting , sanding etc . . there are a lot of different kinds of bit and cutter wheels that you can get with it or for it . .at most hardware

    What kind of bit for the Dremmel; I have one of these already, would love to be able to use it for this project. Thanks!

    Dremmel makes drill bits for tile. Those would work fine, only the holes will be quite small. But using a tile cutting tip you would be able to make the holes larger.
