Last month, our HVAC repair company shared a few great DIY Mother’s Day gifts using PVC pipe, so we figured some Father’s Day gift ideas were in order, too:
If organization isn’t one of your father’s strong suits, why not make him something that can help keep all of his office supplies in place? All you need is a few different sized PVC pipes, some nails, some cardboard, and some paint, and he’ll have a stylish place to put his pens, pencils, scissors, and more. This tutorial explains how to do it.
Does dad love to fish? Make his outings a little sweeter by building him a holder for both his fishing rod and a tasty beverage (a beer, perhaps?). With just a few specific pieces of PVC pipe, dad can have an easy-to-assemble caddy to bring with him on his next fishing trip.
Some dads are just kids at heart, so this Father’s Day, surprise him with something fun. With some PVC pipe parts, a 2-liter plastic bottle, and some cardboard paper, your dad can have his very own paper rocket launcher. This video shows you exactly how to put together a little piece of childhood.
Garage Tool Arranger
With just a piece of plywood, some nails, and some angled PVC pipes, you can give dad a great way to organize all of his garage tools along the wall. By creating a system of pipe storage, dad will be able to store his pliers, hammers, wrenches, and more. You can even create the same thing on a larger scale for larger tools like shovels, rakes, and hoes.
We found this great tutorial about how to build a custom firewood rack. Even though it’s made from plumbing pipe and not PVC pipe, we still think it’s a pretty awesome Father’s Day gift. Plus, it’s so modern, dad can use it as decorative piece in the family room.
If dad can never find his ties, socks, underwear, or other small articles of clothing, why not create a custom dresser drawer organizer? Choose a specific width of PVC pipe, then cut it into pieces based on the height of the drawer. Once you sand them down to make them smooth, you can choose to keep them white or paint them, then place them right in dad’s drawer for an easy way to organize.
A father’s shoes can get pretty dirty – especially if he spends a lot of time in the garden, doing yard work, or building things in the garage. With several pieces of large PVC pipe, you can create a customized shoe storage rack where dad can stores his dirty shoes. Follow this tutorial for how to get started.
What’s a little tailgating without tailgating games? With some PVC pipe, rope, golf balls, and some paint, you can build your very own game of tailgate golf. It’s perfect for backyard barbecues, football games, birthday parties, and more.
