Christmastime is one of those perfect times of the year to make someone a special handmade gift. So I took to the shop after Thanksgiving, stepping away from my lathe and decided to do something different. With my daughter Maddy’s growing interest in baking, I decided to make her a heirloom Recipe Box as a Christmas gift. I purchased a Bubinga board about 6 ft.in length x 11″ wide x 3/4″ thick from Woodcraft. It had such beautiful figured grain and sort of a pink-brown color to it, perfect for my 16 year old. It has been a number of years (about 35!) since I’ve done any flat work, back in my Boardman High School days in Ohio, learning under the tutelage of Mr. Haug, my woodshop instructor.
Making Christmas decorations is a great way to get into the holiday spirit, but it’s also a very effective way to make use out of small or awkward sized scrap wood that’s cluttering up the shop or just being thrown away. Even old, worn out and broken decorations that have been cast aside can be given new life by adding them as accents to these projects.
Nortons always makes good sandpaper.
