The Family Handyman has been around since 1951 – that’s a long time! Take a trip down memory lane with us and see some of our greatest hits from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. Plus, click through for a peek at our very first issue, and check out which celebrity graced our cover in 1981!
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!
These mod bunk beds were all the rage in 1972, when an issue of The Family Handyman only cost 60 cents! Would you sleep here?
