Father’s Day is coming up! For avid DIYer dads, these gift ideas will make remodeling projects easier. If your dad enjoys DIY projects, get inspired by these projects our past customers have made!
All of the glass for these projects was custom-cut right here at Dulles Glass & Mirror!
DIY Tree Trunk Coffee Table: Joseph Crow, a dad and veteran, made a beautiful coffee table out of a salvaged tree trunk and custom table top glass from Dulles Glass & Mirror. He even made a matching nightstand. You can order your dad a custom glass table top that will fit his project in mind. You choose the table top size, thickness, style and tint.
DIY Table Made From a Plane Engine: This is perfect for the pilot in your family or perhaps a very imaginative dad. This DIY table was made from a plane engine and a custom size glass table top from Dulles Glass & Mirror. For the middle part, Bob Perkins, the maker of this table, specified a custom-cut hole for the center of is engine. Most people specify custom-cut holes for patio table umbrellas, but creativity can extend that application.
DIY Jeep Engine Table: Another cool DIY table involving the use of an engine. The maker, Saul M. wanted to commemorate a road trip and his favorite vehicle that sadly gave way due to a crack in the engine. He repurposed his old jeep’s engine into a table. If your dad has a sentimental object, perhaps convert it into a coffee table or display his mementos on a floating glass shelf display.

Construction Glass Glue: What makes this glass glue so special? For one, it’s for heavy-duty applications such as gluing glass to glass and glass to metal. Use it for mirrors, glass shelves, frameless glass showers, and furniture. Added bonus: Nano470 Construction Glass Glue doesn’t require UV light to cure the glue.
Table Top Bumpers & Furniture Pads: If you are buying a glass table top cover for your dad’s furniture, be sure to get a few furniture pads that prevent the glass table top cover from scratching the furniture surface. Plus, the furniture pads keep the glass in place. Use on desks, coffee tables, dining tables, nightstands and more.
