    Default Gift Projects

    When I have the time I enjoy building a gift for someone rather then a store bought item. Thought Id share a few projects and welcome any other members to share theirs as well.

    I made this 1874 Singer Tractor Saturday for a Birthday gift.

    Dragged home this bike I found in the woods to make a guitar.





    A friend gave me a bucket of horse shoes for projects.... I made him the first one.

    Love the ingenuity, thanks for sharing! Usually cheaper to make gifts than buy them, if you have some skills. My wife crafts and does a lot of crocheting, so she makes some of the things we gift people. Now that I have a welder I have been hoping to make some odds and ends things like this.

    These are incredible, you see stuff like this in galleries. Your talent is the vision to see what can be using castoffs, and the skill to make it come to fruition.

    I love it!

    Anything for sale or just things you make for yourself and distribute to friends?

    I don't think I would ever take money for any of my repurposed projects. If I did, it would take all the fun out for me. There is a very good chance I get more enjoyment out of giving to my family and friends then they do receiving, not to say they don't appreciate it, they do.

    Just wondering. My father in law loves old farm equipment and tools so I thought it might be a good gift idea for him.
