A week or so ago I posted in a three-hand tool gift set as an introduction to woodworking for someone you know and you want to get them started. Here are four projects with three tools in a 30 minute video to watch with the kids and the grandkids that are quick and simple as something to do over the holidays. I hope that you enjoy it.

    For the cutting board, is it better not to finish it or protecting with linseed oïl could be useful? I like how it looks like after oïl finish.
