Pick of the Best Christmas Gifts for the Woodworker at The ToolPost

That time is nearly upon us once again: Christmas and its attendant gift list as long as your arm. If you have a woodworker in the family then at least that's one person's gift choice all wrapped up, thanks to the great range of options at leading woodcarving and woodturning tools and accessories retailer, The ToolPost ( Here's a pick of the best:

How about giving the gift of gift-making this Christmas? Decorated wooden pen barrels make "ordinary" pens into beautiful gifts and the Beall Pen Wizard is the ornamental woodturning machine which allows the turner to adorn the pen barrel with spirals, cross-hatching, zigzags, serpentine patterns or alternatively create flat sides with up to 24 facets along the body of the pen. The lucky recipient of the Beall Pen Wizard will soon realise that there are a huge number of ways to get creative when making pens, whether for their own enjoyment or as presents. You may even get one yourself, next Christmas!

If you're looking for more of a stocking filler, then how about a Magnetic Parts Tray, a woodturning tool which is brilliant in its simplicity? This supremely practical yet thoughtful gift provides a handy place for all those bits and pieces that a turner needs at hand while at work, with the magnetism ensuring they don't roll away. Available in three sizes and formats and all at highly affordable prices.

A gift idea which is as attractive as it is practical is a woodturner's smock. The ToolPost sell the premium quality smocks from Lovell, made from heavyweight, close-weave, natural cotton drill which is highly durable even after multiple washes. And to really personalise the gift, why not have their initials or name embroidered on the left breast of the smock? You can arrange for the lettering of your choice directly through The ToolPost website.

And finally, how could we forget the T-Shirt bearing no other than The ToolPost's very own 'Busy Bodger', their well-loved illustrated logo? Made in high quality cotton in a navy colour with white, highly detailed printing of the fun Busy Bodger logo, pop this under the tree for a truly unique gift for the woodworker in your life.

All of these gifts are available to buy online now at, but if you find the task of selection too onerous then why not let the recipient choose for themselves, using the ToolPosts's readily available and ever-welcome - gift vouchers.
