5 DIY PROJECTS ANY DAD CAN MAKE
We love dads! They are teachers, taxi drivers, banks and masters of terrible jokes all at once. One thing that unites many busy dads is their ambition; from home improvements to DIY projects they’re ‘gonna do it when they get the time.’ If you’re planning on using this Father’s Day to finally help your dad get a move on with his DIY plans, we’re here to help. Check out these fantastic DIY projects, complete with how-to videos to find the perfect inspiration to give your dad a gentle push in the right direction.
This is the perfect start-up project for any DIY beginner. Cheese boards are quick and easy to make and they allow your dad to get a feel for a couple of tools without having to do anything too complicated. As an added bonus, they’re a great excuse to enjoy some cheese when the work is done.
PLANT THE SEED OF DIY
If your dad is a bit of a green thumb, or the sort of guy who loves making gifts, this square pot plant holder will be right up his alley. It’s slightly more involved than making a cheese board but still relatively easy and can be decorated, designed and customised as he sees fit.
SHINE YOUR LIGHT
For the dad who enjoys photography or the talented DIY dad who could sell his good work online, the lightbox is a must have. This project allows dad to get comfortable with the drill, circular saw, jigsaw, detail sander and glue gun. Once it’s done, taking a photo with perfect lighting will be a breeze.
GET OUT IN THE SAND
Is your dad a big kid at heart? This sandpit is easier to make then you might expect. It’s a great project that creates hours of fun and bonding time for the whole family.
ONE TO WORK WITH
Want a project that will really kick things up a gear? This DIY workbench will give your dad the opportunity to try out a variety of tools and, once it’s done he will have the perfect workspace to plan, create and make his next masterpiece.
