I've always wanted to create awesome Christmas presents for my loved ones instead of buying them, but it's hard to do without any crafting skills.

I'm not handy in the slightest, so I'd be lucky if whatever I built didn't completely fall apart. That's why I'm so jealous of this woman's amazing project.

Imgur user baileythebernesemountaindog wanted to get her boyfriend something really special for Christmas. They were both in love with artist Greg Klassen's "River" collection, but they couldn't afford his coffee tables. That's when she decided to make one herself.

With some help from the people in her university's workshop, she cut a couple of boards to size and drew the outline of a river.

After sawing the edges, she used an electric file to smooth them and add grooves to the river.
