SIMPLE Woodworking Projects for GIFTS || Woodworking Gifts

In this video, I’ll show you how to make 3 simple woodworking gifts. I’ll cover how to make candle holders, how to make a ring box, and how to make card holders (these can also be photo holders)! These quick woodworking projects make perfect birthday presents, holiday gifts, housewarming gifts, wedding presents and are also ideal gifts for hosts! And the best part is that all of these woodworking projects can be made in one weekend.

My sister-in-law is getting married in September, and she needed some table decor items. These candle holders are perfect for taper candles, but you could also use this same process to make votive or tealight candle holders. This simple ring box incorporates a sliding dovetail and is perfect for those who love a simple yet sleek and modern look. The cardholders will be used to hold up printed table numbers but can be repurposed as picture holders or name holders for your next dinner party. The options are endless! Make these simple DIY woodworking gifts for your friends and family, and watch the smile on their faces as they unwrap their woodworking gifts! As always, let me know if you have any questions in the comments. Enjoy the build video!

    Man that walnut has some crazy figure, was that part of a burl or did you just get lucky?

    Well, you didn’t CHICKEN out finishing the projects. I find it hard to SWALLOW that you PIGEON holed that much walnut. Were you HUMMINGBIRD songs while you worked or PARROTing Dean Martin lyrics? OK, they’re dumb but you asked for it 🙂
