Aside from shops, docks and a wooden boat or two something I remember my Father doing with wood was whittle. He made dozens of turtles and feathers. My Father also whittled walking sticks from wild cherry with burls for the handles.
My Grand Father made six or seven wooden boats as well as renovated their houses. I can also remember my Grampa making me whistle like in this video.
take a look and see what thetoolstore.ca has available to make for a memorable Father's Day this year.
