Topic tags/keywords: holiday christmas gift ideas recommend wood turn lathe

So I’m cranking it into high gear and starting my Christmas projects, but as I am still relatively new to turning wood I was wondering about some turning kit or other basic ideas?

(And I know about pens already! XD)

Pizza cutters, bottle openers, even if they are almost outdated, wine bottle stoppers, pencil holders, small collectors, those things that you put pocket junk in. ... Jerry (in Tucson)

Pepper and salt mills are always a big hit, and not all that difficult to make. I have the best luck with the parts kits from Woodcraft, but there are other suppliers out there as well.

Picture frames can be pretty easy and pretty quick and usually appreciated. They can also be a great learning experience.

Have your say...
