MORE FATHER'S DAY WOODWORKING GIFT IDEAS
Father's Day is creeping closer every day and we need to continue our quest for proper gifts for Dear Ole Dad. In a previous post, we discussed the three kidegories and posited the proper gifts associated with Kidegory I. Now it is time to move up to Kidegory II and find the gifts related to that group.
Kidegory II ($50 to $250) If you are between high school and the end of graduate school, you fit in Kidegory II. Dad's either paying college costs or saving for college hoping your grades will get you in somewhere. He may have bought you a clunker to drive and he pays the insurance and gas bill. Maybe you are living in an apartment where Dad pays the rent and you don't even invite him to dinner. It's time to get with Mom and rustle up a little money and get something for Dad that he will appreciate. Time to grow up a little bit here. Here are the suggestions for this kidegory:
Shop Sign with Saw Hanger — What a great idea! If Dad already has a shop, then think up a name (Dad's Shop?) and order one of these shop signs. He can hang it on the wall in the basement (Sawsations?), or over the garage door (Sawdust Village?). If he doesn't have a shop already, then maybe this is the incentive he needs to start building one. Plant a post at the spot where the shop will be built (The Woodwright's Shop? Oh, wait, that may be taken already) and then let him build the shop around the sign. This is a great gift.
