DIY Gift Guide sos

Hey there friends… Happy Tues-DIY! Over the past few weeks I’ve given you some gift ideas for the budding furniture builder in your life. In Part I of my DIY Furniture Builders Ulitmate Gift Guide I provided the “essentials”. These items are “needs” like safety items and items that will easily allow someone to get up and building. Part II featured DIY Furniture Builders “wants”. These items will take your furniture building to the next level.

This week, rather than buying gifts, I’m going to give you list of projects you can make. All of the projects are Saws on Skates originals. So yes, it’s a bit of shameless self promotion 😉 Included on the list are two of the most searched for projects on the site… No Miter Cut Picture Frames and the DIY Dog Gate. All of the projects are inexpensive and easy to make. Pin this post now to your Pinterest Gift board, so you won’t forget about it!

My Recycled Birdhouse Wind Chimes combine repurposed materials to create an adorable, inexpensive gift.

Have a dog mommy or daddy on your gift giving list? Then Dog Poop Bag Dispenser disguised as a Birdhouse is perfect choice to keep their yard neat and tidy.

Here’s another inexpensive project that uses scrap wood. These Candle Holders require hardly any wood. Chances are you have everything you need in your scrap pile to make them. I’ve been thinking about this project a lot lately and I think they would look amazing painted in a metallic finish!

The most recently completed project was the Plow & Hearth Knockoff Elmwood Stool. The Plow & Hearth version is $119 and the Saws on Skates version was about $9.00! An expensive looking gift for about the cost of a couple cups of coffee!

Here’s another great gift for the dog mom or dad on your list. The DIY Dog Gate Plan is the second most popular project on the site. Make it as is or you can customize the size to your needs.
