Gift Ideas

I couldn't decide where to place some of the things I make, so I made this page for gifts. Don't get me wrong, bowls, boxes, rubber band guns, chess pieces, picture frames, in fact most all of what I make makes fabulous gifts so don't stop here!

Ambrosia Maple and Gold Keyring LDS Oil Vial

Looking for a consecrated oil vial that isn't mass-produced stamped from metal and manufactured by machine? The personal nature of these vials I make gives them special meaning, especially as gifts to new elders, departing missionaries, or as Fathers' Day gifts.

These oil vials are made with ambrosia maple and 10k gold-plated parts. Inside is a glass vial that can just as easily hold perfume or essential oils. Ambrosia refers to the fungus that causes the black streaks. It's introduced by beetles that cary the spores with them. They burrow in to dead maple trees, lay eggs, and leave, and the spores they leave behind begin to break down the walls of the hole into food the larvae can eat. When they grow up and leave, they take the spores with them. The fungus only exists in symbiosis with the beetles, and the beetles can't live without the fungus. Cool stuff. The resulting staining pattern in the maple is distinct, dramatic, and beautiful.
