Woodcraft product managers join Scott and Suzy this year to point out each product’s special features.
Turning, Carving and Knife Making ($19.99-$299.99)
Woodturning, carving and knife making all offer opportunities to make gifts for the holidays, or consider giving kits and materials as gifts to encourage others to experience the joy of handcrafting.
- Turning requires a lathe, and the Rikon 10" x 18" Pen Lathe was designed specifically for pen turners who need a sturdy, dedicated machine for their craft. Also perfect for any other small-scale turnings such as bottle stoppers and ice cream scoops.
- Four Woodcraft Pen Starter Kits are designed for those new to a particular style of pen kit: Wall Street II, Cigar, 7mm Slimline or European. Each starter kit includes the basic tools needed for that style (drill bits, bushings, tubes) and two pen kits to be completed with the turner’s choice of wood or man-made materials.
- Whiskey Wood Bourbon Whiskey Barrel Staves are available as pen blanks in four two-piece packs, as a turning blank for small projects and in kits for making cutting boards and cheese boards.
- Record Power offers a12-Piece Carving Set for beginning woodcarvers that includes tools that are numbered to correspond with the included carving instructions.
- Knives are always popular gifts, and the three new fixed blade knife kits from Camillus – the HT-7, Tyrant and Bushcrafter – make crafting one-of-a-kind knives easy.
- Rikon Oscillating Spindle Sander is perfect for sanding curves, bevels, and just about any contour anyone can envision.
- Together, the 115-Volt or 240-Volt iVAC PRO Remote Control Unit for Dust Collectors, iVAC Pro Tool Plus Tool Sensor, and iVAC PRO 4" Molded Blast Gate will completely automate the shop dust collection process.
- This Japanese Kugihiki Flush Cutting Handsaw is designed to allow the cutting of dowels, pegs, through tenons and excess trim without marring the surrounding surface.
- Starrett’s 6" Double Square is accurate and adjustable, the perfect small-size tool for checking or setting 90° angles.
- Granite Surface Plates – These A Grade surface plates provide a super flat face that is ideal for leveling small plane beds, flattening waterstones and general sharpening duties.
- With the Kreg Custom Pocket-Hole Plug Cutter System, you can use pocket-hole joinery virtually anywhere by hiding the pocket holes with perfectly matched plugs that you create from any wood.
- Introduce the younger generation to woodworking with this Grip 8-Piece Children’s Woodworking Set.
Storage, Transport and Workstations ($5.50-$159.00)
- The Tanos systainer® T-Loc products make great gifts for the workshop, craft room or home. The units come in several sizes and colors, all stackable and linkable for easy storage and transport.
- Kreg’s Mobile Project Center is a workbench, sawhorse, assembly table and clamping station all in one that provides a versatile work space.

Magazine, Gift Card & Catalog

- The Woodcraft Gift Card is perfect if you are not sure what to buy for a family member or friend.

There are thousands of tools that would make a woodworker happy beyond measure!” For new woodworkers or those who haven’t started, Suzy suggests: “There are 74 stores across the nation. Give them a class, and they can learn to make something of their own.”
