I like this suggestion the best, primarily because it’s on my own dream board. My grandfather built damn near everything in his house besides the surface of the home. I grew up watching him in his workshop and was bored out of my mind. Then I realized that apparently I paid more attention than I thought I have for the past 38 years because I was doing random stuff around my own home and wondering, “Why have I not electrocuted myself or flooded the whole room? Tuh, who would’ve thought?” Now I spend 30 minutes every single day watching “Fix It Build It” and “DIY Guys.” I’ve grown so obsessed with that 30 minutes for the past week (started on March 21) that I’m about to up it to 1 hour. I just let them play and watch every single technique/thing they build. This might be my absolute favorite part of streaming channels.
