Woodworking covers a wide range of styles. There’s furniture-making, turning, carving, laser cutting, musical instrument making, and much much more!

When thinking of gift ideas for woodworkers, start by asking yourself what kind of woodworking they enjoy.

  • Do they make furniture?
  • Do they make bowls on a lathe?
  • Do they create projects on a laser cutter?
  • Do they carve intricate designs on wood?
  • Do they build guitars?

There are so many aspects of woodworking, and we have thoughtfully designed our website to accommodate the needs of all styles of woodworking. Once you know what they enjoy building, you can narrow down what type of wood or woodworking product you can surprise them with. We have entire sections on our website dedicated to specific woodworking genres like Wood Carving, Tonewood, Wood turning, etc.
