Read our guidelines before posting

New to reddit? Click here!


  • These are not the subreddit rules. Please see the guidelines link above.

  • If you are posting a help request, please include as many details as possible. Please consider adding photos and doing some basic research into your question. /r/DIY should not be your first stop for your question.

  • All help request must go in "self posts" or the stickied thread at the top of the subreddit.

  • If you are sharing your finished DIY project, please explain how it was done. Consider putting the finished photo first, however this is not a requirement. Comments regarding finished photo location will be removed. Projects without adequate detail will be removed.

  • Please keep all comments on topic. Moderators will remove off-topic comments at their discretion.

  • All images must be hosted on imgur. Non-imgur links will be considered on a case by case basis. Please message the moderators with a link to your post for approval.

  • Civility is a requirement for participating on /r/DIY. We try to stick to a "3-strike" policy for rule infractions - however moderators reserve the right to bypass this policy any time. A temporary ban constitutes a "strike".

###Important note:

Finished DIY project submissions without adequate details / photos will be removed. Consider submitting these photos to /r/somethingimade instead. /r/DIY is about the process rather than the result.

A good rule of thumb is somebody who sees your post should be able to relatively get close to being able to replicate the project with the information you've provided
