As a rule I don’t post much about shed stuff on here. Well, lefts face it it’s not really that interesting - unless I’m restoring furniture and I haven’t done much of that for a while. The shed is the traditional domain of the Daddy – and in that respect we’re pretty traditional around here. Our shed is not only the Man Cave but also the BMW bike house and the hub of our little home business. But, as this ones all about Father’s Day I figured it was time to take some photos in the shed. See this here – it’s a work bench!
In case you hadn’t worked it out yet it’s Father Day on the 2nd of September. Time to start thinking about things that make the big boy of the house happy. For us that often involves a long drive in the car down a series of dirt roads with lots of sticky brown mud flying around. We took one of our first such drives almost eight years ago when Big Girl Pink was only a few months old. It’s still the source of a little bit much laughter around here that my mummy instincts freaked out at the bottom of a muddy hillside track and I jumped out of the car, unbuckled bubs and refused to get back in. It’s okay though – I’m sure the walk did me good.
This year Father’s Day came a little early around here when we got sent some shed stuff to check out as potential Father’s Day pressies. (Suddenly all that time I spend on the computer isn’t such a bad idea – hey Daddy!)
First up let me introduce you to the Dremel Saw-Max which they say can cut through virtually any material including wood, plastic, metal, fibreglass, plasterboard, brick and tile. (Hmmmm might come in handy next time I’m making pumpkin soup! Some of those pumpkins are pretty tough you know.) It actually has heaps of other interesting sounding feature, but I think I’ll just let you follow the link above to find out more – in case I totally embarrass myself with my lack of power tool type knowledge. This one would be a great gift idea for the home handy Dad or the Dad who just likes to chop stuff up!
And secondly the Trojan Top Ten Tool Box. Basically this is a tool box that comes complete with the top ten Trojan Tools inside. Awesomely clever gift idea for pretty much anyone – but I’m guessing particularly the dad of the house. Hammers, screw drivers, tape measures, wrenches …… think of a tool and it will probably be there. It’s the type of kit we should probably all have hidden away for home maintenance jobs but also the type of thing that would make any self-respecting Tim the Tool Man types heart beat a little faster. The resident daddy at out place certainly looked pretty pleased as he checkout his new tools!
