This year for Father's Day, why not dig out the scrap wood,
hammer and wood stains for a custom-built woodworking DIY gift he's
bound to put to good use. Ditch the traditional tie and dress shirt
combo this year (really, he has plenty). With just a little
dedicated time and a couple supplies, you'll be crafting wood
projects that your dad can cherish for years to come.
Follow along as we show you some of our favorite DIY projects
that will put a smile on Dad's face.

We know we said to ditch the ties, but this one is too good not

Quick tip: Instead of using paint, try out one of our
Ultra Mark stain markers. They're easy to control and come in a
variety of different colors.

something personalized from his kids, and you'll get memories to
last you a lifetime.
