Thread: Gifts For the Family

    Gifts For the Family

    Here are some gifts I made for the family:

    Wife -- Ice Cream Scoop with a Cocobolo handle. My wife has used an old beat up metal scoop for years. She really enjoys the beauty of natural wood, so I think she will like this. I wanted to have a different shape on the handle with it being larger toward the brass part, but I ordered too small of a blank.

    Son -- Back Scratcher -- My son is in college here in Arkansas, but is a big Florida Gator fan. I turned this back scratcher and used a blue dye, but was not pleased, so I ended up painting it blue and orange. My son does not have the affection for natural woods like I do (yet), so I figure he will like the bright colors, and the stickers as well. I don't figure it will be used much as a scratcher, but I anticipate him hanging it in his student apartment more as a novelty gift.

    Daughter -- My daughter has a thing for penguins, so I did this intarsia project for her on the scroll saw. Its not turned, but I just put it in the picture with the others.

    Have a Merry Christmas everyone, and thanks for all the help this past year!

    Great looking gifts. They are going to love them.

    Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.

    If at first you don't succeed, look in the trash for the instructions.
