Jr. Woodworkers Toy Factory

Designed in 1980 and distributed in Canada through Irwin Toys in Toronto.  The kit came with a bunch of small pine boards, a little saw and hammer, finishing nails, decals, paints and instructions on how to cut the parts out of wood and assemble them.  Probably the last gasp of actual hands-on building activities for children before this form of recreation was washed away in the flood of Nintendo and Atari offerings.
