Father’s Day Gift Guide


We’ve gathered some Father’s Day Gift Ideas from Woodcraft for the woodworkers and DIYers in your family. To make sure our ideas are what the Dads on your list REALLY want, we’ve taken some time to find great gifts for any budget. For the folks who are a challenge to gift, we’ve included a couple of ideas that should appeal to most everyone.



Father’s Day Gifts for Any Budget

#1 Fathers and Grandfathers will enjoy keeping track of the children in their family with a growth chart that is easy to build using the WoodRiver® Growth Chart Router Jig (a modular template) and your plunge router (3/8" router bushing and 1/4" router bit sold separately).  

Machined from .30-thick acrylic, the jig is designed for use with a 7-1/4"-wide board. Calibrations are in 1-inch increments. Jig includes master template, 6 number inserts and edge locating pins.

Make the chart as a Father’s Day Gift or give the jig to Dads who enjoy building projects. If you or the giftee needs a router, check out the recommendation below, another gift idea.

Kit also includes 1/4" and 1/2" Self Release Collets, Shaft and Collet Wrenches, Plunge and Fixed Base Chip Shields, T-Handle Height Adjustment Knob, Hardware for Router Table Applications and rugged Carrying Case.



Super Light.

Three Grits to Keep Edges Sharp.

#3 Light However You Need It – The NEBO Torchy 2K is MagDock USB rechargeable, water-resistant (IPX6) and equipped with 5 light modes – 35-500 lumens for 30 to 3.5 hours/up to 90 meters – which are seamlessly transitioned through Smart Power Control. The 2,000 lumen Turbo Mode gives short, temporary bursts of power. Features detachable two-way clip and hands-free lighting. Comes with MagDock USB charging cable, lithium-ion rechargeable battery and manual.

#4 Sharpening On Demand – The 3-Piece DMT Dia-Sharp Offset Mini-Hone Set allows you to sharpen, deburr, and hone in tight spaces such as circular saw blades or router bits, while keeping hands away from the sharp cutting edges. The uninterrupted monocrystalline diamond surface lets you quickly put a razor edge on pocketknives and small contact area tools.

Coarse grit (45 micron/325 mesh) quickly restores a damaged edge. Fine grit (25 micron/600 mesh) puts a keen edge on a regularly maintained edge. Extra-fine grit (9 micron/1200 mesh) polishes and refines a razor edge. 3-piece set contains one of each grit.


Tools for the beginning carver.

Adding details.


#5 Ready, Set, Carve – The 8-Piece WoodRiver® Starter/Detail Woodcarving Set is a great entry into the world of woodcarving. Great for relief carving and adding details, the set includes 5F-14mm Fishtail Gouge, 7F-14mm Fishtail Gouge, 3F-6mm Fishtail Gouge and 7F-6mm Fishtail Gouge – all made of 60crv high carbon steel with beech handles – and a Tool Roll.



8" Tool Bar.

12" Tool Bar.

18" Tool Bar.


#6 Corral Your Tools – GRIP 3-Piece Magnetic Tool Bar Set keeps tools close at hand, but off your workbench. 8", 12" and 18" magnetic bars provide storage for ferrous metal hand tools like wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers and more. Installation is simple with the included mounting screws. Ideal for shop, garage, closet and other home storage areas. Note: bar length includes mounting area. Tools shown here not included.



Graph-X5 with aluminum body and lead hardness gauge.

HN50 with polymeric body.


#7 Sketch and Write with Confidence – Use these premium Tomato HN50 and Graph-X5 Mechanical Pencils for layout work or sketching project design ideas. HN50 features a polymeric body, while the Graph-X5 has an aluminum body with a rotating gauge at the pencil tail to identify the lead hardness being used. Retractable nibs prevent lead breakage and accidental damage. Pencils work with rulers featuring marking holes. O.5mm 2B lead refills sold separately.



Project-specific heating.

#8 Heat When You Need It – The WAGNER® Furno 500 Heat Gun has user-friendly controls for 12 temperature settings (150° to 1200°) that take the guesswork out of your most common applications, from removing paint to drying spackle, thawing pipes and removing decals.
