The Woodworker’s Holiday Gift Guide

Looking for the perfect gift for the woodworker or live-edge-lover in your life? Check out these 12 great ideas for locally-sourced wood gifts this holiday season.

#1 Boxelder Burls

Unique burly pieces of maple boxelder are at the top of our list! With gnarly edges and colorful streaks throughout, these boxelder slabs and small cuts are like nothing else you’ll find shopping this season. Great for decorative wall art, small tabletops, serving platters … let your imagination run!

#2 Bread Boards

All made from local northern Colorado wood, our selection of bread boards are a classic hit (and great for all those holiday parties!)

#3 Bread Board Bundles

Or, take a step back from finished goods and give your woodworker a bread board bundle instead! Each bundle contains a variety of local Colorado hardwoods ready to assemble into a truly one-of-a-kind board.

#4 Wood-Framed Mirrors

Made by local artisan Herb Miller, these wood-framed wall mirrors blend local hardwoods with exotic species and add interest to any room of the house.

#5 Encased Walnut Wall Art

For something really special, consider these wood and resin art pieces for under the tree this year. The Black Walnut slabs show each intricate tree ring and the epoxy resin surrounds are subtly transparent, making the metallic pigments glow and shine.

#6 Serving Trays

Take your happy hour up a notch by serving your friends and family drinks or snacks on one of these delightful thin slab trays!

#7 Decorative Slabs

Give your woodworker a fun new canvas to work with this year — small slabs are affordable and come in so many unique shapes and sizes, they’re sure to get the creative juices flowing.

#8 Reclaimed Mantels

Take your hearth to the next level with a 100+ year-old reclaimed mantel brought to us from salvaged barns and buildings on the East coast. Each has a rich history and is ready to be part of the next chapter of your home’s story!

#9 Round “Wreaths”

Okay, this one’s just for fun, but who wouldn’t love this wooden “wreath” for the holidays this year? We’ll even put a bow on it for you.

#10 Coffee Tables

They might not fit under the tree, but a Walnut coffee table, classic or modern design, will definitely knock the socks off your family member … just don’t ask us how to wrap them.

#11 Live Edge Shelves

Here’s a fun and easy idea to bring a little live edge into any room of your home — simple shelves! With lots of lengths and colors to choose from, you can find the right piece to add some special flair to your walls (and maybe hanging some stockings from them?)

#12 Wormy Wood

Last but not least, add wormy wood to your shopping list and surprise your favorite woodworker with a truly fascinating gift this year. Great for anyone who’s experienced or looking to practice with colorful epoxy resins!
