DIY For Guys

Guys are DIYers. It’s in our DNA.

We’ve been DIY guys since the first cavemen sat around their campfire making primitive tools from sticks and stones.

The pioneers had to be DIYers. They built their own cabins. They built their own barns. They put up fences. And when the wagon needed repairs they did it because the nearest blacksmith may have been a day’s ride away.

Our Grandfathers and Great Grandfathers were diyers too. I wrote an article years ago that I’ve posted on this site about how they turned the Tin Lizzie into the the first sports cars for regular people. See it here: The Model T Speedster; Hotrodding The Tin Lizzie

Nowadays we do DIY for enjoyment, to relax and de-stress in the workshop, to get quality furniture and other gear at a fraction of the cost of buying it, and to save money on getting tradesmen out for minor repairs.

So here at The Guy Shed we’ve got DIY articles and posts, and DIY products in our online shop.
