I was finally able to get some time in the shop so I cranked out some Christmas gifts which I finished on the Tuesday before Christmas. Normally I’m guilty of last minute buying and this time I was guilty of last minute making. Anyway, I hit the scrap bin for these items and tried something new. The cutting boards are made from cherry, birch, and walnut. The spatula is made from ash, the spoon from pine, the whistles are from cherry, and the toaster tongs are from walnut and ash. Of all of the items the hardest to make was the spatula. The whistles were probably the easiest. The kids loved their whistles and the adults loved there woodenware items so it was very merry Christmas. I hope everyone had a merry Christmas and a happy new year’s eve. Here is to more time in the shop in 2009.
