What Have You Made for Mom Lately??
Mother’s Day is this weekend. This is yet another instance for woodworkers to shine and create that perfect gift. Several months ago I saw that a set of garden tools was now available without the handles. I got my spade and fork set from Craft Supplies but I believe Woodcraft also is selling them. My mom spends every available minute in her garden and when you take a look at it you would never believe she lives in the arid Colorado desert but rather in some lush tropical climate. It is amazing what she can get to grow with so little rainfall but every year her garden is impressive. What better gift than a new set of tools to help her with her passion. My family was stationed in Hawaii when I was little and the Hawaiian culture has always been a little part of our our lives since. So to really top off this perfect gift I dug into my stash and produced some beautiful curly Koa for the handles.
A little lathe time and I have produced a one of a kind gift that will make my mom very happy.
Of course mom does drop by this site from time to time so I hope I didn’t just ruin the surprise that will be arriving in the mail this weekend…oops
