In case you are thinking about making an advent calendar, well, there’s only two days left of November. But a couple people sent over their versions.
Davide Righi from Italy made this clever calendar from MDF and cut out plywood discs. Each disc swings on a screw to reveal the prize.
Bill Wilson used real bulbs for his advent calendar, using bobby pins for hangers. And more flour for snow!
Here’s one of the more unusual gifts I’ve seen. Ian Staley in the U.K. made his daughter a Dibber. It’s a tool gardeners use for planting seeds. He turned it on a lathe and it has marks every 2cm. Great idea for gardeners.
Tony Biles had a good idea. Here’s something that would be a great gift for woodworkers or non-woodworkers. A sandpaper holder/organizer:
Or modify it a bit and you’ve got a desktop paper organizer!
Chris Pawley in England built this utensil drainer/dryer using oak cut-offs. Kitchen projects always make great gifts.
Though not likely a Christmas gift, Chris also sent over this video of his beehives! Plus, you can check out his shop.
