Woodworking gifts for dad

I’m a woodworker. And I am a dad. And I’m a gift avenger.

That makes me a total pro in picking woodworking gifts for dads.

Heck, I might even accidentally on purpose drop a link to this article in my family’s email. 😉

I know what woodworking gifts I’d love to receive. I love tools and have lots of them already but there are certain things that I haven’t purchased because they always fall further down the list of priorities. These are the items your woodworker will love. Your dad will wonder how on earth you knew! There are handy utilitarian things on this list as well as the splurgy kinda things woodworkers won’t buy because they are too expensive. Whatever your budget there is something here that every woodworking dad will love.

Our Fancy Pick
Yataro Authentic Japanese Chisel Set (5 Piece)
$199.99

There is nothing more satisfying to a woodworker than a sharp chisel. Well, maybe a long shave from a plane beats a chisel. Still, you cannot go wrong with a beautifully crafted chisel set. This set wins hands down when it comes to a top-shelf choice.

  2. GRR-RIPPER 3D Pushblock for Table Saws, Router Tables, Band Saws, and Jointers by MICROJIG

    SAFETY! For years I used a shop-made push block to guide woof through the blades of my tools. On an impulse, I bought one of these at a local store. Wow, not only do you feel much more secure and safe but it actually improved my cuts. This contraption holds work pieces much more securely and evenly when pushing them through a blade resulting in better cuts.

    Ok, yeah it's a bit dorky. I resisted using an apron for years until I got sick of ruining every t-shirt I have. And always looking for tools. Enter the shop apron. I'm sooooo glad I got one and now I put it on immediately when starting a work session.

  6. Bosch Colt 1.25 HP Variable-Speed Palm Router Tool
    $127.99

    Larger full-sized routers are heavy and clumsy for smaller delicate work. This little guy is perfect for simpler more delicate routing tasks. It is one of those tools that many woodworkers can get away with using a full-sized router but having this makes lots of routing tasks a more precise and pleasurable experience.

    Accuracy. Squareness. Those are the name of the game in woodworking. Having the ONE perfectly accurate square/triangle in the shop is an absolute must. You'd be surprised how many of the cheaper triangles are actually triangular. They simply aren't accurate. ANY woodworker will appreciate a top-notch triangle. I use one of these EVERY single time I'm in my shop.
