May we suggest some gift ideas?

Choosing gifts  is never easy and when you wish to buy something of a "technical" nature, it is doubly difficult.  This being the case, I trust that you will not be offended if I give a few suggestions as to how you might make a Birthday, retirement or other event a little extra special this year for a woodworker or woodturner of your acquaintance.

To help select a suitable type of gift, I have broken the gifts into rough price bands based on prices in pounds (excluding shipping and EU taxes) but with an approximate equivalent in dollars given for guidance.  If nothing here appeals - or meets the description you have been given (!) - then please feel free to drop me a line for advice.

Of course, you may also find that browsing the site to an area which matches the interest of the recipient may well help too.  For instance I could not hope to make a realistic recommendation for a single carving gouge, but you may well find what you need in our carving section.

Simply click on the links below to be taken to the relevant section of the site.
