Woodturnings make fantastic gifts. You can find useful items like bowls and platters and salt and pepper shakers, or you can find solely decorative objects for the one who has everything. The wonderful thing about woodturnings is that no two are exactly alike. The wood grain is always different, like fingerprints. There are many talented woodturners out there. Find them at your local galleries and craft fairs. You’ll be glad you did. Here are three I found this morning on-line. Most are quite reasonable. Some a little more costly. All are definitely worth it. Take a look at their on-line shops. They have more. You'll also find other woodturners at those sites.
