Wood Gift Giving for the Holidays

Madrone Salad Bowl by Dale Larson.

Thoughtful and one-of-a-kind gifts are often a challenge to find. Why not go with a functional, durable and creative gift made from sustainable materials?

Nothing beats serving a fancy salad out of a large hand turned wooden bowl, any gourmet would appreciate it! Artists Dale Larson, Roger Dunn and Dan Thoreson specialize in functional and beautiful serving and salad bowls.

Looking for something more feminine? How about mosaic jewelry made from many different colorful woods by Martha Collins.

Turned wood pens by Todd Zurik would make a great gift for dads, executives and those hard to buy for.

Hand crafted jewelry boxes by John Thomas or Paul Tokarowski would make a great useful gift for him or her.
Valet Box by John Thomas.
