The Perfectly Imperfect Father's Day Gift

It appears to us here at the workshop that the best Father’s Day gifts are that of the homemade variety. The ones that dads will cherish for years and years to come. The ones that will bring a tear to his eyes on her wedding day or bring him back to the wonder years where he swung a club for the first time with his budding athlete as he takes home his first trophy. You know the classics: the cement hand prints or the photo frames with Popsicle sticks stuck to them. You can usually count on the school to deliver one of these gems to your home . However, in the era of shrinking budgets and school testing we find these timeless trinkets sent home less and less often. So this Father’s Day take up the cause by celebrating him with a homemade favorite that will stand the test of time. Need some inspiration? No worries! We have gathered a few to inspire you to get all the  small hands in your home busy this Father’s Day!
