Christmas Presents for My Workshop Friends


What do you give someone that you are teaching to be creative? Take a look at my solution and tell me what you think.
Before
Knife blocks and Oil Cans for a creative Christmas
These are filled with useful supplies and tools, but you can customize them for anyone.
For all the people that say they can't.... I say yes you can. Just find someone close to you and ask for help. More than likely they will be honored.
Repurposing is a favorite amongst us, and we love to come up with neat ideas!
Keeps things neat and handy no matter what you have in it!
Customize the color, add some glitter or bling it all the way out!
My favorite thing to say to someone is "Yes you can"! To see more of my stuff check out my store at www.autumnaire.com or go to my blog at www.autumnaire.blogspot.com.
Merry Christmas!

    What kind of finish did you use on the blocks?

    I couldn't help but notice that the knife block in the 'before' photo is not the same as the 'after' photos. Where can I find knife blocks with horizontal openings (in after photos) rather than the typical vertical openings?

      There really aren't any set instructions for this project. It all depends on the block you find and what you're putting in it. Just have fun creating your vision. Yes I drilled out the wholes for the pens, paint markers, etc. I just put the drill pit at the end of the whole and went slowly so that the bit didn't wander. Here's a tip... It's wood, if you think you've made a mistake fill it in with wood putty, let it dry and start again! Super easy. Enjoy!
