10 DIY skills all great men know

You're going to put that shelf up this weekend, right?

The one that's been sitting in a plastic wrapper in the hall for the last few months? You stubbed your toe on it last Friday? Your other half has been passive aggressively stacking books next to it for a while now. Yes, that shelf.

It's okay - we're not about to insist that your lack of DIY skills are a detriment to your claim on masculinity. We just want to help. According to a recent survey by Jacamo, fewer than 50 per cent of men know how to rewire a plug, despite YouTube having a bunch of decent tutorials. 

To help you 'do it yourself', Handy’s DIY pro Matt Philips has shared a round up of the 10 skills he believes every man really should know. Grab a hammer.
