17 Amazing Gifts for Woodwork Lovers!


Wooden objects have been cherished throughout cultures and generations for thousands of years. Wood has always been at the centre of creating classic gifts.

While the calendar has changed over to 2021, we are still coping with COVID-19. As living with this virus is the new normal, we are trying to find ways to communicate with our loved ones.  If you can’t see them in person, you are looking to send them a gift to express your love and affection. And woodwork gifts can bring a smile to any woodwork lover.

Gift Boxes

One of the best things about woodworking is that there is always a new tool that is tempting. Trust me when we say that there is never enough woodworking equipment.

Fortunately, there are many good options to pick from for the best woodworking gift for your friends or family.

From cheap glue bottles or carving knives to expensive new accessories in the store, everyone will find unique woodworking gifts.

Dust Collector

A dust collector is one of the best investments you can make in a repair shop. It is basically a woodworking toolkit. It has nothing to do with whether or not you wear a dust mask and respirator.

Woodworking dust collectors have different price ranges and different manufacturers. Therefore, you must make sure you choose the right equipment for your workplace or workshop.


The calliper is one of all carpenters' best friends. From tiny 6 '' devices to 50 '' monsters, it always seems like we have more than we need. If you are looking for great woodworking gift ideas, look no further.

Marking Knife

Scoring knives are an indispensable tool for carpenters looking to start cutting their grooves/rabbets, tenon, or dovetail. The ability to mark precise cut lines on the workpiece makes the process smoother.

Carving Tool Set

Carving tools are a fun and inexpensive way to start working with wood. All you need is some wood, a few tools, and a sitting position, and you can start carving your wooden spoon or bowl.


Glue bots have become the backbone of most woodworking shops. Their drip-free use and the convenience of applying a small bead of glue make them the perfect gift for carpenters of all skill levels.

Extension Cord Reel

A ceiling-mounted extension cord is one of the most essential things for a carpenter. Once they get it, they will not know life without it! For everyone in a small store like ours, this tool is a lifesaver. When we wind tools (such as dust collectors and brushes), we save ourselves from stretch cables throughout the factory.

Field Notes Memo Book

Field Notes is a classic gift that any carpenter can bring home and in the store. Field Notes are available in many styles, including serifs, graph paper, and even left-handed versions.

Bluetooth Smart Speaker

Smart speakers are a great way to stream music, podcasts, audiobooks, or live stream to your store. You can even integrate tools like dust collectors into your system with smart speakers and say “start dust collector” to turn them on when needed.

Woodworking Square

Woodpecker has produced a fantastic range of woodworking tools, including spacers, strokes, and squares. This wooden grid comes in handy for checking the blade or fence's angle or ensuring straightness when applying glue.


The word trivet is French and means the old “potholder.” They are handy in protecting our table against the heat and humidity from hot baking trays, mugs, teapots, and coffee presses.

They are a good gift idea. They are flat and light. They can be mailed or transferred abroad.

Cheese Boards

The handcrafted wooden cheese board and cheese set are made from durable Australian wood.

Well-arranged wooden cardboard with various cheeses and all the accoutrements are sure to impress your guests.

Laurel Camphor, Oak, Huon Pine, and Blackwood are a few types of mixed boards that use a contrasting wood combination.

If you choose cheese boards as a gift, make sure they are made from sustainably sourced wood.

Woodworking Apron

Without carpentry aprons, we would hardly ever spend more time in the store. It keeps my clothes neat and clean, keeps all my pencils in one place, and keeps me in good shape.

Fortunately, waxed canvas aprons are also very inexpensive, making them great gifts for woodworking enthusiasts.

CA Glue Set

CA glue is another type of glue in the store. You can fill the clumps or gaps on wood surfaces with CA glue. CA glue makes a great gift as it has a wide range of uses.

Japanese Pull Saw

The Japanese-style saw swing is better than traditional swings. You can see Japanese pull saws on hardware stores' shelves.

They are easy to use, cut with precision, and tend to peel off the wall faster than with power tools when a quick cut is required. Do not be fooled by the low price. These saws are worth their weight in gold.

Sharpening System

If you have a hand tool, you need to know how to sharpen it. Fortunately, this sharpening system makes razor sharpness almost simple.

Charcoal Pencils

They quickly become anyone's favourite pencil for drawing on dark wood. Walnut wood and the usual pencil lines are always painful, but they work great. It is worth adding a cup of pencils to the pool table.

Palm Router

In recent years, the palm mill has become a very versatile woodworking tool. Compared to their full-size cousins, these routers are easier to handle and more secure to use. We have many routers in our store, so carpenters will never turn down this gift idea.


It is extraordinary to give you this kind of high-quality woodworking gift made by you. The most important fact is the happiness and satisfaction it brings. It is incomparable. So, do these things and enjoy life with your loved ones.
