    Show me what you planning for Xmas gifts

    Hi guys, seeing Glenn and others starting to tuck away small articles for Xmas gifts i sat down with Loml last night and said maybe we should do this too as a replacement to the bought items.

    So I thought i would start a thread for all to show what they are making.

    Please list and show your Xmas gift projects for me.

    How do you judge what works and what doesnt.

    Thanks.
    cheers

    Hi Rob.
    Couldn't you find a more difficult question to ask?
    What works and what doesn't mhhh I think that it depends on the person that is going to receive the present.

    Provided that the object will be well done and finished, which yours I'm sure will; some people prefer "usable" presents like a cutting board, a box or a quilt hanger, others may prefer more decorative objects like a mirror or picture frame but somewhat they may feel obliged to hang them just because it is a present from you.

    It is a difficult subject that depends very much on the knowledge you have of the receiver of the present.

    I know that this is not helping you much but honestly I don't know what else to tell you.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I'm going to try to turn some ornaments this year...been saying that for 2 yrs now. I've got quite a few pics that I've saved over time of some that I want to try. If I ever get around to doing it I'll post some pics.

    Also, I'm going to give making a cutting board a shot too.
