Gift Ideas for Special People

Mary and I discovered these neat gift ideas that will be thoroughly enjoyed by porch lovers and anyone who relishes the outdoors. All of these gift ideas are from our favorite online place to shop: Amazon (affiliate link).

We find it occasionally difficult to find just the right gift for a loved one, neighbor, co-worker, or anyone who needs a special touch. So we've selected items we believe will be great finds and make your shopping so much easier.

Put a Few of These Under the Tree

You can't beat the internet for lots of information on how-to's, but having a reference book at hand can be priceless in the wood shop. I use these books often and recommend them for the woodworker or remodeler in your family.

Even if they are experienced craftsman, there are always new ways to build things. If new to woodworking, they'll appreciate the information offered.

More than 10 years after its original publication, "Woodworking with the Router" remains the most highly regarded - and best-selling - router manual available. A must have for any woodworker.
