GIFT IDEA 1 | Fastcap glu bot glue bottle

Wood glue is an indispensable part of a woodworking workshop. But original bottles can get dirty quickly.

This is the ideal solution for that.

The GluBot from FastCap is designed by and for furniture makers and woodworkers. They are easy to fill, they do not drip and they release glue in both horizontal and vertical position, it will be the best glue bottle you will ever have.

GIFT IDEA 2 | Japanese flush cut saw

The most commonly used handsaws are saws that cut materials by pushing and are therefore called “push saws”. 

These Japanese saws cut materials by pulling and are therefore called ‘pull saws’.

Compared to “push saws”, “pull saws” are lighter in weight, require less power and the resulting edge is cleaner.

The ideal gift for people who love a fine finish.

GIFT IDEA 3 | Woodworking books

Okay, books may not be tools, but they do contain a huge source of knowledge.

You can have a workshop full of tools, but if you don’t know what to do with them or don’t have the right techniques, tools are useless.

Give yourself or someone else a book to relax after a long day of hard work to learn all about woodworking.

GIFT IDEA 4 | Metal detector

What’s worse than hitting metal with a brand new saw blade?

An invisible screw or nail hitting the blade can cause it to become blunt, or worse, can be thrown in the trash.

With this tool, you can check in a simple swing whether metal is present in the wood.

This gift is perfect for those who handle their power tools with great care or people who make lots of projects with reclaimed wood.

GIFT IDEA 5 | Kreg MKA2900 multi-mark (must have for any woodworker)

Draw parallel lines? Mark the same dimensions repeatedly? Set the depth of your saw blade? 
Then I recommend you this super handy tool. 

I own the Kreg KMA2900 Multi-Mark myself and it is always in my pockets.  

Just turn the knob open, slide the ruler, tighten the knob, and voilà, the multi-marker is set. 
This handy tool is light and strong and has a built-in level
Buying this was worth every penny.

That is why I recommend it to any woodworker.

GIFT IDEA 6 | Corner wood chisel

When your router creates the perfect insert but leaves a “rounded” corner, you can use this corner chisel to chisel out the corners of your hollow hinge recessesquickly, easily, and accurately.

A handy tool for people who make many cupboards, door lock recesses, picture frames, and many other applications where a 90-degree corner is needed.

GIFT IDEA 7 | Pipe clamps

You can never have enough clamps in your workshop.
Ask any woodworker and they will agree.

With these quality pipe clamps from Bessey, you can determine the opening yourself based on the length of the pipe you use.

These clamps are therefore ideal for clamping large parts.

GIFT IDEA 8 | Router bit set

If you want to work on the edges of wood or mill a slot, the range of router bits is huge.

With this set, you give a gift in which the most common router bits are present.

So if you want to give a gift to someone who likes to make beautiful finishes then this is the gift you are looking for.

GIFT IDEA 9 | Moisture meter

Wood must be perfectly dry if you want to work with it. 
After all, you don’t want the wood to crack as it dries out.

To determine the moisture content of wood and other building materials (such as plasterboard) you can check this with this simple device. 
This way you know how high the moisture content is and whether the wood can be used properly.

GIFT IDEA 10 | Woodglue

I think wood glue is the most rewarding gift you can get. Most projects require wood glue, and some projects can sometimes take literally a few gallons.

So, you don’t know which gift to buy? 
Then buy wood glue, any woodworker will be happy with this gift.
