Cripes, Tom, that's cutting it fine. :shock: Does she like gardening? A turned dibber or decorative finials to go on the top of plant supports are always popular. Or some off cuts of something durable like oak can be cut to make plant labels, with copper wire from old 'leccy cables if you want to tie them on. Sewing? A needle case isn't too bad. Just a spindle with a hole down the middle and a decorative top with a spigot to jam in as the top. A honey dipper? Got any cedar in your stash? A few turned pieces on ribbon to hang in the wardrobe are useful. Cheese board? Bread board? Boxes of any sort are always popular. How that gets the inspiration flowing a bit. :? Good luck, and let us know if you made it in time :wink:

Cheers, Alf

ah theres nothing like giving someone a present you hand crafted your self, something that you planned for weeks :wink:

A few years ago now I made my mum a No. 7 sign for the house. She seemed to like it but I never got round to put it up, it's still sitting inside the porch and now we're moving house :oops:

Anyway good luck with whatever you make her :)

Congratulations, your mother will be pleased.
