*sale/sail *tail/tale
*heal/heel *knead/need
*strait/straight *led/lead (noun) substance
*dear/deer *peer/pier
*miner/minor *bow (verb)/ bough
*toe/tow *bow (noun)/ beau

There’s a few. Please remember that pronunciation can differ from place to place.
(note: hue – that H is often enunciated in a way that distinguishes the word from “ewe” and “you”)
