Suggested Gifts For The Woodworker On Your Holiday List

December 4, 2013

It’s not all that unusual for me to hear from family and friends of woodworkers asking for gift ideas around the holidays, and every year I keep promising to put together a gift guide to help them out. Well I finally did it!

From books & online education to magazine subscriptions and tools, there’s a lot of great ideas out there to suggest. And if you’re a woodworker who’s worried your loved ones are on the verge of getting you something you really don’t want, maybe you should send them this page!

The 2013 Woodworker Gift Guide is a downloadable PDF with embedded links that will take the user directly to where they can find the item(s) listed at online retailers such as, Highland Woodworking, Shop Woodworking, Woodcraft and many more.

You can open the document directly from this page by clicking on the link below, or you can save it to your computer by right-clicking on your mouse and then choosing “save link as…” and it will then download directly to your computer where you can then send it to family and friends.

2013 Woodworker Gift Guide

Depending on whether you open it in Adobe Reader or some other software, when you click on a link to an item there may be a warning message about the document trying to open an online window, etc.

I checked this out to find out if I had a malicious link and it turns out it’s actually a setting in the Adobe Reader preferences. To continue, just indicate it’s okay when prompted and carry on as normal.

And last, but not least, all the links are through my various affiliate programs with the different vendors, so your purchases help to support the show…but more important is that your family and friends will get you something you really can use in the shop!

    Do you still have “schwag” giveaways and is there a way to sign-up? I found the page where you said the format would change, and to be announced soon, but could not find the answer by searching your past posts. Thanks.

      Hi Mike,

      The Schwag giveaways are currently on a longterm hiatus, but aren’t gone forever. It’s just been a little while since I’ve been able to put one together like I use to in the past. But hopefully in 2014 we’ll be able to get them going again.

      Thanks for asking.

    Keep up the good work!
