    Moving into our first house in a couple of months! Want to use that time to make projects for my house!! The only thing stopping me is that I only have wood glue, a hammer, and some nails. With all the stuff your giving away, I will go to town on building new projects for my little family’s new house! It’s a house right now, but with the projects I make with these tools and your handy website, my house will become a home 🙂 I’m crossing my fingers! Thanks for the giveaways!

    You make it look so easy but when you have no tools except a hammer and nails and a dull hand saw, life is hard… My husband bless his heart works outdoors with his hands all the time so he is not interested in building a thing for me on his off hours. Would love some tools to do some simple builds to get started!

    Thanks for this awesome opportunity! Over half of our town in ND, was devastated by a history breaking flood! We were all over the news so maybe you heard about it? People are still living in FEMA trailers and are not back into their homes, some never will be! Well winter just doesn’t seem to want to go away up here, so there is more talk of some serious flooding again! One would think it couldn’t happen twice, right? Well the water is rising! and we are expected to get 8-10 inches of snow this weekend! Praying the weatherman is wrong!! Anyway
    ….. I could really put these tools and supplies to good use helping to get houses finished, and lives back to as normal as possible!!!
