Turn up the Disco, it’s time for fondue!
‘Tis the season where woodworkers venture into their shops to churn out small projects by the gross for all their friends, family, business contacts, mailman, etc., etc. Every year my wife goes to great lengths to devise new and original gifts that (gasp) mean something to the recipient. Besides the fact that she is one of the most giving people you have ever met, her gifts are always met with great acclaim. I would like to think that I have a little something to do with that.
4 years ago, she had specialty note cards printed up with her school’s mascot on it to gift to all her teaching colleagues. She enlisted me to make pens to go with those cards. Then it was desk clocks, then wooden bowls full of cookies. Every year the bar gets raised just a little and the pressure is on to come up with a new idea.
This year the fine folks at Craft Supplies came through by offering fondue forks project parts. My wife makes amazing Pound Cake so the light bulb went up and ta da!!!
8 pound cakes, a chocolate fondue recipe, and of course 32 hand turned fondue forks made from beautiful woods. Take that last’s year gift!!
…now about next year, I was thinking about a chocolate fountain…
