The internet can often be a frustrating place, but it’s also an incredibly useful resource for woodworkers in need of some inspiration. That’s especially true of YouTube, where countless woodworkers post DIY projects, lessons, tips, tricks, and more. In other words, it’s a goldmine of woodworking ideas!
Take Steve Ramsey’s Wooden Snowflakes on a Table Saw video. There are many ways to create snowflakes in a woodshop, but this method might be one of the coolest we’ve seen. The best part is that the snowflakes are endlessly customizable, making it fun and exciting to keep experimenting with shapes until you perfect your craft.
Better yet, although they’re fun to make, they’re even more fun to share with others! Whether that means giving them away as presents or selling them at your local maker’s market or craft fair, people absolutely love these wooden snowflakes. Make them out of inexpensive scrap wood or play around with beautiful hardwoods to make them even more elegant.
And There’s More!
Snowflakes not quite your idea of fun? For a real wealth of ideas, check out Steve’s other video where he shares a handful of gift projects that he’s created in the past.
He also solicited the help of other woodworkers in the community and created a photo album of holiday gift making ideas to provide maximum inspiration! No matter the type of woodworking you enjoy, no matter the tools you have in your shop, you’re sure to find something that’s right for you. From bandsaw boxes to scroll saw ornaments to decorative candle holders, this folder is sure to spark your creativity and your imagination.
