List Of Craft Hobbies For Men

So I wanted to share with you my list of the best craft hobbies for men. I’ve divided them into three categories: Arts & Crafts, Building & Modeling, and DIY Projects.

Arts & Crafts


Anyone who likes to create things and has an interest in working with metal should try metalwork. If you’re looking for something that combines art and craftsmanship, then this is a great hobby for you!

If you decide to start with metalworking you’ll need a few basic tools, a bench grinder or angle grinder for shaping pieces, a drill press for drilling holes, files or sandpaper for smoothing edges, pliers, a hammer, screwdrivers, and wrenches.


Drawing is a great hobby for anyone who’s interested in art, drawing can be a great way to relax if you’re feeling stressed out or anxious.

Drawing is also an excellent pastime for people who are interested in learning more about perspective. This is because drawing requires you to understand how lines interact with each other in order to create depth.

One of the best places to learn how to draw is from this tutorial from SchaeferArt.

Bone Carving

If you’re interested in learning how to carve bones, then I highly recommend getting started right away.

Bone carving is an art that has been around since the early days of civilization. Some of the earliest known specimens of bone carvings date back to the Stone Age and can be found in museums around the world.

You can make a piece of art from scratch or take inspiration from an existing item already made by another artist.

If you have always been curious about pottery but never had the opportunity to try it out, now is your chance to get started.

Pottery is not just about making pots and cups, it can also be a great way to explore different materials and techniques, which means there are tons of options for how to get started with it.

If you’re interested in learning how to do pottery, there are tons of resources available online. Here is a free online guide to pottery for beginners.


Just think of all the different things you could make: furniture, picture frames, toys, and much more. And all of these things are customizable so there are endless possibilities.

The first step is to pick up some tools: an electric saw, drill press, and hand planes are essential but there are many other tools that will help make your work easier such as chisels, clamps, and sanders too.

You can find guides on everything from the basics like choosing the right tools for the job, to more advanced techniques like furniture building. If you’re looking for something specific (like how to build a bookshelf), there are even videos available.

Another option is finding an in-person class or workshop at your local community college or library.


In case you’re not familiar with lapidary, here’s a quick rundown: Lapidary is the art of cutting and polishing stones or gemstones into decorative items like jewelry or sculptures.

These days, you can buy ready-made lapidary kits for a few hundred dollars that have everything you need to get started.

Woodburning is a great craft hobby for men because it allows you to express your creativity. The only thing you need to get started is a woodburning tool, which you can buy online or at any craft store.

Once you’re comfortable with using your tool of choice, it’s time to start thinking about what kind of projects you want to work on.

There are plenty of options out there for creating personalized gifts for friends and family members, but if you don’t have any ideas yet then check out this list of easy woodburning ideas.


How To Start With Woodcarving? The first thing you’ll need to do is find a good knife. You can buy one at any hardware store, or if you want something fancier, you can look online.

Once you have your knife, get some wood that’s soft enough to carve into, this means it shouldn’t be too hard or too soft. The best kind of wood for beginners is pine or cedar because it won’t splinter easily and will be easy to work with.

You can also learn about different types of carving tools and techniques from the book The Complete Guide To Woodcarving by E.J. Tangerman.

Building & Modeling

Balloon Art

Balloon art is a form of sculpture that uses balloons instead of clay or other materials. You can use balloons to make anything from simple ornaments to figures and sculptures of animals, cars, or people.

If you’re interested in taking up this fun craft hobby just watch this video on how to make balloon hats and start making your own.


If you love to tinker, build things, and create new things from scratch, then miniatures are for you.

Miniatures are also a great way to teach your kids the basics of how things work. You can even do it with your spouse or partner if they’re interested in learning too.

You can make anything from tiny tables and chairs for your dollhouse up to full-size models of buildings (or even entire cities).

If you want something specific, look online for tutorials or videos on how other people have made it before. You’ll be surprised by what kinds of things people have made using these kinds of materials!

DIY Projects

Beer Brewing

If you’re a man who likes to make things and enjoys drinking beer, then homebrewing may be the hobby for you. There is nothing more satisfying than turning your favorite beverage into a fun craft hobby.

First, choose a recipe and gather all the ingredients together. Then find out what kind of equipment you’ll need (you may already have some) and follow instructions carefully so that your first batch turns out well.

If it doesn’t work out right away, try again. The more often you’ll do it, the better your chances are at getting it right eventually.

There are tons of sites online where you can find info on starting up your own brewery.


If you like to work with plants, like to be creative, and are interested in learning about aquatic life, then this hobby could be right up your alley.

With the right knowledge, you can create a beautiful underwater landscape with the plants and decorations of your choice.

Start small, one tank at first will probably be enough. Once you’ve got your tank set up and running smoothly (including making sure there’s enough light), then it’s time to add some plants.

Concrete Crafting

Concrete crafting is the perfect hobby for men. It combines the practicality of crafting with the satisfaction of making something that you can use in your everyday life. If you’re looking for a new hobby, this one’s for you!

You’ll need to purchase some basic materials before you begin your project: cement; sand; water; and an aggregate (which is usually crushed stone).

You’ll also need tools like a trowel and mixing tubs. Your final product will be durable enough to withstand most weather conditions

Check out YouTube videos on concrete crafting techniques. You’ll find all sorts of tutorials from beginners all the way up to expert-level tutorials on how to make different types of projects with concrete.
