Father's Day Gift Ideas for the DIY Dad

- Get Dad something that he's going to love this year for Father's Day.  What's great, though, these gift ideas will help him create something you'll love too.  The Home Depot's Mark Cruz has some great gift ideas for all kinds of dads.

Help him get the job done faster with reliable hand tools, great for all projects. Nothing intimidates this man. He remodeled your closet in your first apartment, built your childhood treehouse, gutted and then made mom's kitchen dreams a reality. Meet his heavy hitters.

It might be the most versatile piece in the workshop: the rotary tool. Get Dad a Swiss Army Knife of power tools with a Dremel 3000 Variable-Speed Tool Kit. Cutting, polishing, engraving, sanding and shaping are all possible with this high-speed, hand-held tool.

If your dad is into woodworking, consider the RIDGID 12 Sliding Compound Miter Saw. It's mounted on a movable arm designed to accommodate longer pieces of wood, although it also works well on smaller pieces. Exact line laser alignment system makes it easy to align and cut.

He starts the project, and he may finish the project. Or he may not. If you're buying for a guy who likes to fix, disassemble or investigate things, make sure he has the tools to MacGyver it.  Husky 65 piece Mechanics Tool Set gives Dad everything he needs to work on his car and tackle household projects. The set offers a 3/8 in. teardrop ratchet, 39 sockets, an extension bar, an adapter, a magnetic bit holder, 10 screwdriver bits and 12 nut driver bits. And the case makes it perfect for storing.

Or if Dad would never want a set this extensive, consider the Husky Total Socket, which can replace up to 44 SAE or Metric sockets. It has a lower profile than standard socket wrenches, allowing him to get into tight spaces. Constructed of high carbon steel and heat treated for strength and durability.

If he's into perfecting wood working or metal projects, the Husky 6 inch Low Vibration Palm Sander that weighs less than 2 pounds reduces vibration by up to 50% over conventional palm sanders. Designed for final finish sanding of metals, plastics and glass fiber.

Make his projects a breeze with long lasting power tools. Lithium ion power tools and outdoor power products keep getting better and better- give Dad a gift that gets the job done faster with more power.

For the yard:
- EGO cordless mower matches or surpasses the performance of gas - without the noise, fuss and fumes. These have the industry's most powerful 56V Lithium-Ion battery, with 40 percent more power. The line includes a blower, string trimmer and hedge trimmer that all work on the same lithium ion battery that charges to full in less than 30 minutes. 
- Toro's new Mow n Stow technology provides power, reliability and ease to mow the lawn quickly. Toro 22 in. Self-Propelled Gas Lawn Mower is self-propelled and quickly folds up for vertical storage, which means less work for dad from start to finish. 

In his garage: 
- Ryobi's One+ system has 25 cordless 18-volt tools, which means you don't have to buy a new battery or charger for each new tool. Cordless tools mean less time moving around the cord. The Ryobi ONE+ 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Hard Surface Sweeper / Blower is the perfect tool for Dad's quick driveway or deck clean up that is light weight and cordless. Designed for easy, one-handed operation.
- The Makita 18V Compact 2 piece kit delivers power and performance in a compact size. This kit is built for the pro-Dad who requires the best cordless tools for drilling, hammer drilling, driving and fastening. The LED light on both tools is handy for tight spaces or working late into the evening.
- If Dad is an avid biker or if he just needs an at-home tool to fill his car tires, the Husky 120-Volt Inflator gets it done fast, yet quietly. It features a pressure gauge that glows in the dark for easy viewing, and, it comes with nozzles for air mattresses and bike tires.

If your Dad is the grill master, add new variety and functionality to his favorite cooking tool - the grill.

Weber Spirit E-310 Gourmet BBQ System Gas Grill makes it easy to use the grill for nontraditional meals. Remove the classic grates and drop in one of the cooking attachments like the pizza stone to create three meals a day - all on one place.
- Breakfast: Poultry roaster inserts are perfect for cooking flavorful bacon.
- Lunch: Grilled romaine lettuce and bell peppers make for a healthy and tasty salad. Add a fresh tomato to your traditional sandwich and place on the grill for a hot and crunchy alternative.
- Dinner: Use pizza stones to design your own personalized creations topped with crunchy vegetables.

Most people think of a specialty store for grilling accessories. So The Home Depot added more than 75 new accessories in every store with partners Charcoal Companion and Weber to cover virtually every cooking need:
