posted on April 24, 2009 by Kim Adams

Both Mother's Day and Father's Day are fast approaching, and if you're planning on
handcrafting a gift, it's time to get started! Here are six great woodworking projects that will make this year's gift extra-special.

Pill Holder Key Ring

Pill Holder Key Ring

This is a great gift for the parent-on-the-go! Does your dad need to keep his medicine with him? Mom want to keep an aspirin handy? Our brass hardware kit completes your turned wooden pill holder for the perfect useful and considerate gift.

Wooden Travel Mug

Wooden Travel Mug

Another parent–on-the-go gift: Almost everyone could use a travel tumbler, and your handmade wooden mug with a stainless steel insert will make a uniquely practical present!

Jewelry Box Kit

Complete Jewelry Box Kit

If you don't have a lot of time, or you're a beginner woodworker, this jewelry box kit is the perfect thing for you. The elegantly simple design makes it suitable for a man's bureau or a woman's dressing table. Pre-cut pieces make this a quick project.

Ice Cream Scoop

Chrome or Brass Ice Cream Scoop

What a fun gift! Maybe bring over a pint of Ben & Jerry's and the beautiful, brand new ice cream scoop you just turned. Our hardware kits make it easy.

Snack Bowl Serving Tray

Snack Bowl / Serving Tray

The 'rents can serve snacks in style when you present them with the gorgeous serving piece you made with the CMT Bowl & Tray System Bit Set. The included template, router bit, and instructional DVD make it easy to give a truly impressive
gift!

Business Card Holder

Business Card Holder

Moms or dads who are part of the corporate grind (or even retired moms and dads who sell at craft shows!) will appreciate this gold-plated holder for their business cards. Just add a finished wooden base for your own hand-crafted touch.
