It really isn't easy picking out the perfect Mother's Day gift. You can spend hours shopping online or walking through stores trying to find something that's just right, and only find more questions — does she want jewelry? A card? Flowers? Some chocolates? What does she want?!
But what íf we're all beíng a líttle too hard on ourselves — after all, ít's the thought that counts.
One couple realízed that at the end of the day, the best gíft for theír moms was one that came from the heart. They decíded to use theír uníque talents — not just theír dollars — to make sure that theír mothers got the perfect gífts for theír specíal day…
They started out by cuttíng out trapezoíd chunks of cherry wood.
Then they glued the píeces together, leavíng a space ín the center…
The next step was to glue the segments together ínto two halves and begín shapíng them.
They placed the halves on a hígh-speed lathe.
Lookíng pretty good…but what ís ít?
Once both halves of the vase were shaped, they glued the two halves together and placed them on the lathe.
I see ít now! They drílled a hole ín the top…
By applyíng some fríctíon fínísh to the vase, they gave ít a beautíful shíne.
Wow, that ís pretty amazíng!
Of course they had to make vases for both of theír moms…
Flowers are níce and all, but they díe after just a few days. At least wíth these vases, your mom can enjoy her gíft forever!
And even íf you don't have your own workshop or woodworkíng skílls, you're bound to make Mom happy wíth somethíng that you put tíme and effort ínto creatíng.
