What’s shakin’, Tinkernation? Meet Paul McConnell, Dad of the Century and the winner of our recent Weekend Challenge: DIY or DIT?
Paul won with the following answer:
“I love tinkering with cars with my daughters. They have both helped take two wrecks and make a good car for their first car. I believe they need to have a little general knowledge about what they drive. They both started young, getting screws and riches, screwdrivers and wrenches) as one used to say when she would hand me tools. I spent a few times in the doghouse sending 5 year old girls into the house with grease on their clothes. Wouldn’t trade those memories for gold!”
Paul’s answer won because his story about sharing his DIY heritage with his daughters completely embodies the Tinkernation spirit. We’re here to share in the passion, highlight our American CAN DO spirit, and swap stories about people keeping the maker movement alive. So without further ado- meet Paul!
