We love sharing our VERY favorite tools with you! Many of you want to know what you need to get started. This page is just for you!
These are tools that we recommend. We use them on an almost daily basis, and LOVE them!
So… In no particular order… Here we go!
What saw do we use?
We are HUGE fans of Home Depot’s Ryobi Brand!
Make sure to check out their amazing site Ryobi Nation! You can share your projects there and enter to win monthly giveaways… So cool!
We use the Ryobi 10″ Sliding Compound Miter Saw
Another GREAT tool that we use all of the time is a brad nailer! You will use this bad boy ALL the time.
Here is our favorite…
For those of you looking for a saw to do simple crafts with, we recommend a small hand saw like this one. This is what I started with! I still pull it out occasionally for small projects. It’s great for so many of the projects we have done on our site!
That’s a stocking stuffer gals! Come on… You will thank me! This is a perfect ‘craft’ saw, and you would be shocked at how many projects you can do with it!
A Jig Saw is a small hand held saw that is great for cutting more decorative pieces. This is the jig saw we use!
Our Favorite Drill
A drill is like a hot glue gun. You will use it ALL the time. This is the drill that both Ash and I use it and we LOVE it. It’s lightweight and so powerful at the same time! Legit.
Don’t forget your drill bits!
Every great drill needs a bunch of drill bits! I have LOTS of sets. I use them all the time! This is a great set below.
Obviously, one of our very favorite tools is the Kreg Jig! This tool is the best thing ever! If you are serious about wanting to build furniture like we do, we TOTALLY recommend this tool!
If the entire kit is out of your budget, you can also buy the Kreg Jig by itself below!
Another AMAZING tool that we use almost daily is a finish sander. This tool is not a must, but saves a ton of time and work. I use mine on a ton of craft projects. I like to round my edges when I do photo blocks and other small crafts. This takes care of it quick! It’s also great for furniture building!
This is our all time favorite sander! It’s easy to hold, lightweight and again… So powerful!
Ash and I love crafting with our staple guns!
These are cheap, and will get as much use as your hot glue gun.
And let’s not forget about a tape measure! Seems like a no brainer… BUT… We definitely have a FAV. We love the smaller size of this tape measure and it’s auto-lock feature! Time Saver! And cheap!
Our list is short! You really can do so much with a small investment of tools. We know for many of you they are intimidating. We are here to prove just the opposite! We have made it our goal to prove to you guys that these tools aren’t scary or difficult to use. Building your own furniture really is easier than assembling prefabricated furniture from big box stores!
Let us know if you have any questions!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Have a great weekend!
