Fathers Day comes in June in the USA and for all the nutty Dads out there this Nutty Plaque for Dad is the perfect gift for you to make. The first Sunday in September is Fathers Day in Australia and New Zealand.


Father’s Day was originally held in remembrance of the 362 men who were killed the previous December in a mining explosion at the Fairmont Coal Company.
