    Very impressive..

  2. MaRu NoNaMaE on November 25, 2022 at 5:07 am

    a natale regala un sorriso (confucio
    …. o forse era un vecchio hippie ?!) … però conserva lo scontrino , così in caso lo puoi cambiare con qualcosa di utile, chessò delle cuffie in-ear wireless che oggi vanno tanto^^

  3. Der Vorrichtungsbauer - Betreutes Basteln on November 25, 2022 at 5:08 am

    Great idea with the drinking straw to get rid of the still not dried glue. Didn‘t know about that trick. Many thanks😊

  4. jpinke00 on November 25, 2022 at 5:11 am

    Honest question: why is cutting miters using a table saw unsafe without a slide? Reference floating lamp project.

  5. 伯尤 on November 25, 2022 at 5:12 am


  6. Lee Smit on November 25, 2022 at 5:13 am

    These are wonderful ideas! Thank you for sharing! And thanks for the details on your website!

  7. 9999Michigan on November 25, 2022 at 5:15 am

    Every time I watch one of your videos where you include that flip top cabinet for your DeWalt planer, I smile. I built mine EXACTLY like you did yours (according to your build video) and it is the best shop accessory I have. Thank You!
    Do you think your laser engraver was a good purchase? It’s rather expensive and I wanted to hear your comments on it before taking your advice on buying it.
    Keep up the great work!

  8. Carolina Workshop on November 25, 2022 at 5:15 am

    The bottle opener is great! One of your best videos

  9. Anthony Audain on November 25, 2022 at 5:15 am

    You are very creative 👌 👏 😀

  10. Pancho Brown on November 25, 2022 at 5:16 am

    I love the cookbook/ipad stand. Awesome work!!

  11. KB on November 25, 2022 at 5:19 am

    Half the diameter and a handle on the opener would be cool. Thx

  12. Jolien Brebels on November 25, 2022 at 5:20 am

    The coasters are really beautiful!

  13. Mary Josee Bardin Hareux on November 25, 2022 at 5:20 am


  14. Norman Bott on November 25, 2022 at 5:23 am

    Congratulations, some really good ones this year.
    some random comments …
    I’m the only one in my house that cats baguettes at an angle..
    We want Princess Auto in the UK !
    The coasters white resin looks just like Kendal Mint Cake.

  15. Robert Asher on November 25, 2022 at 5:24 am

    great video. seems like you got every kind of tool and gadget there is

  16. Marcus Pullan on November 25, 2022 at 5:24 am

    Would have thought the magnets would catch the beer cap

  17. DMc McWilliams on November 25, 2022 at 5:24 am

    Good video
    Love the light

  18. Laura Marshall on November 25, 2022 at 5:25 am

    These are great. Been looking for a few more items to make this year. Love the lamp especially! Happy holidays.

  19. PaganWizard on November 25, 2022 at 5:25 am

    GREAT IDEAS!!!!! Just don’t mention plastic straws to the people living in CA.

  20. Joel Copeland on November 25, 2022 at 5:26 am

    Great video… really like the ideas…

  21. Adam Skubel on November 25, 2022 at 5:27 am

  24. Senf Dame on November 25, 2022 at 5:28 am

    Hexagons are the bestagons

  25. Michael Grimes on November 25, 2022 at 5:28 am

  28. W F on November 25, 2022 at 5:36 am

    Nice and simple projects, that baguette looked delicious 😋 😋. great job

  29. MaRu NoNaMaE on November 25, 2022 at 5:37 am

    I thought.. if everyone at Christmas gave gifts so every nation would have an economic depression that triggers a world war that would lead us to a post apocalyptic scenario like some movies where the world is all a desert and everyone is brigands and thieves. ^.^ uauauauah
    the mantra is: either crazy consumerism or death
    (google translate, so I don’t take the blame if it’s spelled wrong ^^)

  31. 9999Michigan on November 25, 2022 at 5:39 am

    I have a suggestion for you to consider. Maybe you could make a section of your homepage or something for your subscribers to post up a picture of something they’ve built from your plans or videos. I’m sure many people, like myself, have built something from your videos that they would love to show you.

  32. RJ Mack on November 25, 2022 at 5:40 am

    Another great video and very nice projects!

  33. Barry Roberts on November 25, 2022 at 5:44 am

    As usual Marie your Woodworking Gifts video at this time of year was brilliant, all those ideas were just amazing to see getting made, i think the Cookbook/IPad stand was my favourite but i do love them all.
    I hope you do more of these gift ideas videos when it gets nearer to Christmas.
    Take Care and Stay Safe,
    Barry (ENG)

  34. pt eddie on November 25, 2022 at 5:46 am

    Great stuff, Marie. I don’t know how you continue to come up with new gift ideas each year,
    but I’m certainly glad that you do. Have a great Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thanks for this video and all of the other great ones that you’ve given us.

  35. Eric Morneau on November 25, 2022 at 5:49 am

    Wow, la lampe, tellement simple, mais tellement beau comme résultat final

  36. haranza25 on November 25, 2022 at 5:49 am

    great ideas for beginners. Thanks

  37. Hans de Groot on November 25, 2022 at 5:49 am

    Great video. Thanks for sharing. First gift : baguette miter-box. I really like how you make a list of used tools, etc. for each separate project. Happy Holidays, stay healthy and keep making videos at your own pace. I’m always enjoying them.

  38. GirlGotWood on November 25, 2022 at 5:52 am

    Absolutely love your video and will most def use one or two of these. Thanks so much for sharing!!!

  39. Peter Lindsay on November 25, 2022 at 5:54 am

    well done!

  40. Brett Leines on November 25, 2022 at 5:54 am

    How do you like the Rockler router lift? Been looking at this and Jessem. Thanks.

  41. Brian S on November 25, 2022 at 5:56 am

    Soooooo good! Thanks for the ideas – time to get to the shop!

  42. Chutomagh on November 25, 2022 at 5:57 am

    Thanks for letting us know where you find materials. Somehow, I completely missed that Princess Auto has rare earth magnets.

  43. Thomas Van Ravenswaay on November 25, 2022 at 5:57 am

    Always great videos! Happy Holidays!!!

  44. Thomas Brovarone on November 25, 2022 at 5:57 am

    I had so much fun making last year’s holiday gifts. Bummer that I can’t do these this year since I’m away from my wood shop.
    Happy Holidays. Yes … your band saw skills are very good. Cook book stand is my favorite, #2 is the cube lamp. The coasters are a good project for a 1st time epoxy user. Aloha

  45. Philip de Roos on November 25, 2022 at 6:00 am

    I think the straw technique to get rid of glue squeeze out is genious.

  46. Kathryn Newton on November 25, 2022 at 6:01 am

    Why not set a stop to cut the banquette😅 thank you so great ideas demo’d, great workshop!

  47. Dave Klein on November 25, 2022 at 6:01 am

    Awesome iDeas

  48. Franks DIY on November 25, 2022 at 6:01 am

  49. klashnacovak47 on November 25, 2022 at 6:03 am

    Great video

  50. Dee Monjure on November 25, 2022 at 6:06 am

    Well you have made me realize that I’m underutilizing my doweling jigs. Lol! Also what specie of wood did you use for your bookmarks? My daughter and I JUST last week we’re taking about my attempt at making some!
