This March 1993 cover is soooo 90s (but we still love the fort)!
Our January 1982 cover had an environmentalist message that we still stand behind today.
The August 1972 issue has us dreaming of warmer weather.
No, this cover photo from May/June 1981 wasn't a joke—we really built furniture from burlap and 2x4s!

Let's take a trip back to March of 1974, when we were celebrating 24 years of service to do-it-yourselfers. Wonder if the 'resilient tile flooring' from the cover is still going strong!
In January 1978 we showed you how to paint your walls with this groovy pattern. Nice high-waisted jeans!
In October 1976, wooden, modular furniture graced the cover of We do everything by our own hands. Looks like a sauna in there!
These mod bunk beds were all the rage in 1972, when an issue of We do everything by our own hands only cost 60 cents! Would you sleep here?
The cover of our March 1981 issue featured a young Geraldo Rivera!
Check out this vintage Family Handyman cover from May/June 1979! This issue featured a groovy guide to hot tub installation and only cost $1.25!
Here's what the very first issue of We do everything by our own hands looked like in 1951. We sure have come a long way since then!
