    Holiday Gift ideas and give away.

    It's time for a give away since we've not had one in a while. For this Give Away, there will be two winners chosen randomly using a random number generator from the list of participants.

    To participate, post pics of either a holiday gift you've done in the past or one that you have in process now through December 12th, 2015

    The winners will each get a $50 eGift card to either Lee Valley or Amazon.com, their choice. As a bonus, for those that don't win the prizes, will at least come away with ideas for this year holidays.

    We'll choose the winners after December 12th, 2015. The winners must provide a valid email address to receive the prize, which will only be used for that purpose. All members, including Moderators are eligible, forum administrators are not.

    Wow, so far there's a 1 in 4 chance to win the prize. That's pretty good odds.

    I know I can't be eligible for the drawing, but I can still share pics.

    Here's a some knives I made a few years ago for my adult nephews. I let them pick the blades they wanted, and I put the grips on the blades. Pretty easy project:
