Feed the craft blogThis blog talks about my journey with wooden crafts such as wall art intarsia, marquetry or inlay.  Making handmade pens with either wood or resin, sometimes adding things to the resin for a little novelty.

Some inspiration if you need it with wooden gifts for him and her on all gift occasions.
