15 Awesome Ideas for Your Man Cave

Toilet paper holder

Most guys love their car and what better way could there be to honour that and bring that love in to the man cave? It is the right thing to do really, and it won’t cost you too much cash or time. It is pretty straightforward but very cool.

Jack Daniels Soap Dispenser

Jack Daniels Soap Dispenser

This is really cool and of course, it doesn’t necessarily need to be done with this specific form of empty liquor bottle. Whatever is your favourite poison, you can turn it in to a cool soap dispenser, just don’t get so drunk you start doing shots of hand soap.

Wrench hooks

Wrench hooks

You can surely make your friends jealous with this one. All you really need beyond a few screws and wrenches, is super-human strength to bend the damn things in to shape. I’m sure you’ll figure out a way. How hard could it really be?

Cutting board

Cutting board

If you find the right bit of wood you can turn it in to a cool chopping board but it could also double as a place you put your drink. Just make sure you sand and finish it properly or you might end up eating tiny splinters of wood.

Coffee Table

Coffee Table

This is similar to the last only you don’t have to pay quite as much attention to the finished products so long as it can stand up and support the weight of a few things at the same time. All you need is a wooden pallet and a bit of spare time.

Book shelf

Book shelf

Do you read there in your little man cave? Well you should or you’ll get stupider. You’re gunna need a book shelf for all those books. Awesomely, this one is made out of pipe clamps, which you can get from the hardware store along with the few other things you will need.

Beer Barrel Bed

Beer Barrel Bed

Say that ten times fast. “Beer barrel bed”. Saying it a million times won’t make it any less awesome. If you can get your hands on a big enough beer barrel, you can turn it in to the best bed on the damn planet, as this photo clearly shows.

Tyre Sink

Tyre Sink

Check these out. It’s all pretty self-explanatory isn’t it? But that shouldn’t detract from the awesomeness. They’ve even got petrol pumps for taps. Things don’t get any manlier than this as far as sinks go.

Bottle opener with cap catcher

Bottle opener with cap catcher

This is a pretty simple idea yet I would argue that it is up there with the very best of the fifteen entries to this list. It not only looks cool, but also means that there is far less cleaning up to do after a night with the boys around.

Pallet arrow

Pallet arrow

Another thing you can easily make out of an old pallet. This arrow can be used to point to many things, not the least of which could potentially be a bathroom or an exit for those who need to be shown the door.

Car BBQ

Car BBQ

Just casually cooking on a barbeque made from a car….. This is a really cool idea but what are you gunna do when you run out of gas. That was a pretty poor attempt at a pun. I’m very sorry.

Coin floor

Coin floor

This is going to take a hell of a lot of time I would think but if you have the patience and a weekend to kill, then the rewards are obvious. Your friends will be a pleasing mix of awe and envy when they lay eyes upon it.

Pallet bar

Pallet bar

Didn’t I tell you that a pallet is a versatile tool to have on hand to deconstruct for DIY? Well I may not have, but it is. Clearly that is the case with this awesome bar made out of an old pallet. It might take just a little more work than the arrow but it will also bring more enjoyment and satisfaction.

Suitcase shelving

Suitcase shelving

This is pretty cool but seriously, who has that many old suitcases lying around? Even if you go out and buy some that are a little retro, it is still slightly impractical given the price for all those suitcases combined. Despite these potential cons, the pro is that it looks sweet.

Nintendo Controller Coffee Table

Nintendo Controller Coffee Table

Okay so we have definitely saved the best for last here and I think we can all agree upon that. You may not agree with the dude at the store which sells these things though as he demands somewhere between three and our thousand dollars if you wish to take this back to your man cave.
