Father’s Day Gifts that any DIY Dad Will Love

It’s coming up on that time of the year again.  The time of year that we rack our brains trying to figure out what dad really wants and then finally settle on a “Best Dad” coffee mug or another blue tie.  Why not really surprise dad this year with a gift that he can really use and will actually love.  We’re not saying he didn’t love the “Best Dad” coffee mug, we’re just saying it may be time to change things up and really surprise him with a gift that will have him thinking of you every time he uses it.

We have some great gift ideas for the DIY Dad’s out there.  Whether it’s woodworking tools for the shop or hand tools for around the house, we have some great gifts that will make Dad’s day special without breaking the bank.

1. I have too many clamps…  Said no DIY Dad EVER!


We have great deals on Clamps from Bessey Tools or Woodpecker.  These clamps are sure to make working on his next project a breeze.  Everyone knows when working on bigger projects, 4 hands are better than two.  Clamps will help Dad finish his projects faster and with ease.   Give Dad some Bessey clamps to help free up his hands and his time.  We recommend our most popular selling Bessey clamps- The Bessey K Body Revo Jr, starting at just $63.11* for a pair.
