My dad advice for building the perfect fence post – my secret creates a solid base, it's so easy | The Sun


A DIY dad has made building a perfect fence post within reach of even the most inept.

He even revealed his secret to a solid base and it was so easy.

It's one of dozens of videos from Dad Advice from Bo (@dadadvicefrombo) who has attracted an enormous following of 3.2 million.

"Regular dad teaching you what I I taught my kids,” he said on his TikTok.

His approach to any number of jobs was user-friendly and home-spun, demystifying many DIY jobs that would intimidate many.

In this video, he showed how to erect a fence post.

“I’m going to show you how I put a post in the ground with concrete," he said.

"This is actually for my wife’s berry garden. It also works if you are installing a fence."

With the holes already dug, he revealed his secret at the very beginning of the process.

"I always put a rock at the bottom of a hole. Then I pound on it with my post and that makes a good solid base."

His video has had over 108,000 likes.
