When we moved into the house that would become Rock Father HQ back in 2010, in front of the garage was one of the plants that would end up sticking around - a relatively young Clematis plant that didn't have a proper trellis to support it. Clematis is a climbing vine, so to get it to grow and flower well, a trellis is essential, so that first year I purchased a black metal trellis that did the job this past six seasons, but we were ready for something with a little more style. Because of where the plant resides, we didn't want to go too tall (there's lights above it) but nothing we'd seen at retailers really grabbed me... but eventually, inspiration struck in our own backyard, where a small pile of fence scraps had been tossed aside and were headed for the curb this spring.

 Craftsman CrewTHE ROCK FATHER has partnered with Sears as a paid member of the Craftsman Crew.

When it comes to making, building, and creating with high-quality craftsmanship, few know the drill more than the big man in red - Santa Claus. If you've never had a chance to visit Santa's workshop in the North Pole, let me tell you that you're missing out. Sure, you might know Santa and his Elves for all the toys and games that they spend the first 11 months of each year creating, but the work that goes into keeping Santa's Sleigh running at top-speed is done in Speed Shop that rivals some of the best hot rod builders in the world - and Santa's ride is a 9 RP (that's Reindeerpower) force of gift delivering fury! The Elves know that Craftsman Tools power their workshop, and with that in mind you could give a gift that rocks for the budding maker on your list - whether they're young, old. naughty, nice, nice & naughty, or just getting started. Craftsman has a Holiday Gift Finder that can help you find just what's right, and as part of The Craftsman Crew, I'm sharing THE ROCK FATHER's Top Craftsman Gift Picks to highlight some of the best and brightest, alongside some sweet products - not just tools - that I bet you didn't even know that Craftsman had. Ho! Ho! Ho!
