Tools for the Beginner DIYer

I was truly shocked when a friend asked me a couple of weeks ago to borrow my power drill. She is a home owner and someone I considered to be very handy. Here are my reocmendationsn (in order of importance) for the DIYer and home owner.

1. Basic Tool Set
  • Screw drivers
  • Hammer
  • Wrench
  • Pliers
  • Measuring Tape


2. Power Drill


3. Staple Gun


4. Saw (Table saw, rotary saw or jigsaw, just depending on what projects you expect to complete)
  • Chop saws are great for angled cuts and straight cuts. I have a 10" blade and am able to cut wood for furniture and picture frames.

  • Circular saws are handheld and allow for greater flexibility in use (they don't need to be on a table), and are great for those wood pieces larger than a table saw blade but you lack the guaranteed straight line.

  • Jig saws are great because they are easy to use. I use mine for cuitting circles of ottoman pieces and detailed wood cutting with unqiue angles and shapes.

I believe you can invest in a tool set, power drill, staple gun and one saw for under $150.
