"How To" videos by a dad who has raised 2 adults (and we still talk).
I will do my best to provide useful , practical content to many basic tasks that everyone should know how to do.
I will release a new "How to" video every Thursday.
I am planning to start "Tool Tuesday" May 26th, where I will go over a tool a week to help you complete your tasks.
Here was an article written about me In April;
I was interviewed by Jamie Tompkins with Q13 news in Seattle (my hometown);

We recently set up a PO Box if you would like to write me;

  73. Ana Gallegos

    My Dad died last April. Months before it happened I thought to ask him how to fix some things at home but in the end I did not do it and now he is gone. Thanks for opening this channel, I found out through a meme hehe. God bless you, greetings from Mexico. P.S. This video interests me a lot. 😂❤

    1. Dad, how do I?

      I am sorry to hear about your Dad. Glad you're here Ana!

  74. Katherine Bran

    Hi, i lost my dad when I was 2 y/o, I have not relationship with my dad family and don’t know much about he, my mom doesn’t like to talk about. Found your channel because a meme on Instagram lol. But I’m crying right now, my mom isn’t the most caring, she gave me everything I need, education, clothes, a roof and food. But never gave me a hug or a demonstration of love aside from, maybe that her way to love. Our relationship is cold, she is more like a tutor from me. Sometime i dream about my dad and his personality and if he would be fill that space that my mom doesn’t fill. Even when we fight, I think if my dad would have thought like me and how different my life would be. I’m so thankful to find you and hope your family feel proud of you. I’m from Chile, I’m sorry for my English, is very bad but I make my best.

    1. Dad, how do I?

      Your English was fine, thanks for joining us Katherine, glad you're here. 🙏

  75. Warrior Wolfette

    Hey dad- can you teach me how to unclog a dryer lint trap? Mine is jammed with lint inside the shoot and I need help!

  76. Dana Quinn

    I dont have a dad to ask and idk if this is stupid but you know how you have to change winter tires to summer tires and vice-versa every season? Can you not just replace them yourself this way or do you HAVE to go to the shop??

    1. Dad, how do I?

      Hi Dana, you can do it this way yourself IF you have the tires mounted on separate rims. If you just have the tires, you will need to have the shop unmount and remount the different tires.

  77. Marina Soto

    Pretty good advice! As a person without dad, all i can said is: thank you Dad!

  92. mixio hili

    Me, who has a great dad but there’s a strained relationship: “oh cool, a new dad video!” Dad: “I love you, and I’m proud of you!” Me: 😭 LOVE YOU TOO

  93. tank grisly

    The only problem about checking at the gas station is that your car will still be hot and this means oil will still be on the engine. This means that the oil level measured can be a little smaller than real level. Learned that in driving school. Agree on everything in the rest. Also, a factor for, as you mentioned, changing the filter with the change of oil is that if oil is new and filter is old, the old filter will contain old oil onside.

  94. Orion Orbison

    Love your videos. Informative and comforting.

  95. Justin P.

    Thank you for the quick lesson.

  96. Esmeralda Reese

  98. ben g

    Thank you so much for doing this sir, my dad died when I was 10 and I'm almost 20. There are so many things I had to learn by trial and error and it was really difficult at times. I'm in college now but there are still so many things that I don’t know that you cover in your videos. This is really important. Thank you for doing what you're doing.

  99. Brittany Kennedy

    Could you do one for putting a hook in the ceiling?
