Introduction: My Dad & I MacGyver
Hello! My dad always macgyvers broken things around our house. I think he is my inspiration : )
This instructables will show some of our works.
Don't forget to check my dad Ace Project in this instrctables.
Step 1: Revive Dustpan
A dustpan handle at our home had been broken. So my father revived it by putting old toothbrush in the hole in the handle, gluing it, then using PVC pipe as a new handle since the inner diameter is too big for toothbrush.
Step 2: Extend Small Broom
Attach small broom to the broken handle from previous step for extended length. I use this one for cleaning my guinea pigs' cage without bending myself.
Step 3: Wall Phone Holder
Your phone can't be hung on the wall ? No problem!!!
Attach small plastic box to the wall as a phone holder.
Step 4: Repair Sofa
Our sofa was broken. My father used the old parts of other broken chair as cushions. It might not look beautiful, but it is comfortable : )
Step 5: Tape Rest
Use your waxed sheet from your used sticker as a tape rest.
Step 6: Beat the Dust
I love to store my things in boxes and put them all in the shelf. Unfortunately, top box always cover with dust. So I have simple solution for this problem by using large paper (mine is from old calendar) to cover the top.
Step 7: Simple Headphone Holder
Hang a wire with the hook of the stand to make your headphone holder.
Step 8: Simple Monitor Stand
My pc monitor wasn't high enough, so I used computer component box as a monitor stand.
Step 9: Portable Ventilation Fan From Its Box
This is one of my dad's master piece!!!. He use its box to make a case. Then add extra wire and switch. Done!!! You can carry it around and use it wherever you like. Sometimes I use it as personal fan : )
For this project you can find more details on this instructables of mine.
Step 10: One More Thing...
I hope this instructables will help you deal with your problem in macgyver way : )
