Have you made your list and checked it twice? For those hard-to-by-for ones on your list, a handmade project is always appreciated. Below are some of our favorite WWGOA projects that you can make in a weekend or less... just in time for gift-giving.
Stamp Dispenser NEW!
Cavatelli Tray NEW!
Contemporary Asian Mirror NEW!
Here's a super fast and easy last minute gift idea; it's a stamp dispenser for a roll of postage stamps. All it takes to make is a few tools, a few pieces of scrap wood, a few hours, and some gift-wrapping!
The process for making this handmade shoehorn is somewhat of a sculpting affair, rather than a matter of mathematic precision, which makes it a fun project. It's a quick project that makes a perfect gift for someone with back problems because it features an extra-long handle.
For the chef on your list, a handmade cavatelli tray will be perfect. This tray is used to make a traditional Italian pasta but also looks beautiful displayed on the kitchen counter.
Curved verticals make this contemporary Asian mirror project look both elegant and complex yet the construction is very simple. The dowels create an accent that is as beautiful as it is functional.
