I'm in a bind and need some help. A very special colleague's birthday is coming up tuesday, and I want to make something for her. Last year, she got the first presentable bowl off the lathe, so a bowl is out (though she uses hers all the time). That three foot tall birdhouse I made went to her boss, so something like that is out too. Frankly, I'd been planning to steal the idea for that cheese and crackers plate that Cody made, which was so cool, but we've been swamped at both work and home so I never got around to ordering the center and the glass top from craftsuppliesUSA, so that's out...
Please please please help me think of something special and unusual to make for her on the lathe, or otherwise!
