Make Mother a Gift to Remember with Help from Woodcraft

Give the mothers in your life a unique gift this year – one you handcraft with assistance from Woodcraft.

“Making a Mother’s Day gift is easy,” Woodcraft marketing manager Lori Haught said, “especially if you decide to craft one of the three projects recently featured on Woodworking Adventures, the Woodcraft blog.”

Choose from a Coat Rack/Shelf Combo made from found objects, a Recipe Box decorated with a woodburned coloring book pattern, and a Picture Perfect Wooden Frame Jewelry Organizer made from a repurposed picture frame – projects that offer lots of options to reflect your own creativity and your mother’s preferences.

Coat Rack/Shelf Combo 

The key to this project is selecting a board with character for the rack and then adding a shelf and hooks made from inexpensive items like door knobs or escutcheon plates found at a flea market. Click here to see project photos and instructions.

Recipe Box 

A design from an adult coloring book is the focal point for this wooden Recipe Box project. Using carbon graphite paper, the pattern is transferred onto the box. Next it is burned into the wood with a woodburning tool, and then colored pencils or markers are used to highlight the design before a final topcoat is added.

Picture Perfect Wooden Frame Jewelry Organizer 

A picture frame, chicken wire or fencing, simple hardware, a dowel rod and knobs are all you need to create this stylish home for jewelry. Click here to see project photos and instructions.
