Handbuilt Holiday 2016 Giveaway

Friends I can hardly believe I am writing this but I am honored to announce I have partnered up with Ana White again for our annual Handbuilt Holiday series!

Can you believe this is the 4th year of this series?!!!  What?!  Just for kicks I found the original email from August 2013 when I proposed this crazy idea:

Funny how a possibility becomes a reality and so much has happened since that email.  Every year Ana and I work really hard to scour the internet for handbuilt project ideas that are new, different, useful, fun and mostly great for gift giving because this series is all about making holiday gifts.

We will begin the 2016 series on Friday, October 7th and post one new gift plan every Friday until Christmas.

A little peek at past builds to get your project list started.

2015 was dynamite:

2014 had some steller ideas:

And 2013, our first year, had some cute builds too:

To celebrate and kickoff this year's series we have partnered with a few of our favorite brands to offer an awesome giveaway bundle of tools worth almost $500.  This giveaway includes a Kreg K5 pocket hole jig, the Ryobi Tools Ulitmate Combo kit and a $50 gift card to The Home Depot.  What a great holiday gift that would make for some lucky DIYer!!
