Tools I Use

In this article, I list the tools I use for my projects.  Additionally, I show you the equipment I use to run my business.

I’ll update this list when I add/remove woodworking tools or epoxy resin tools from my shop.

The same goes for the equipment I use to create DIY video tutorials and handcrafted items for sale.

A Craftsman’s Tools

Every craftsman uses tools no matter their skill level. 

Some enjoy the top-of-the-line tools.

Others take pride in using only simple antique/vintage hand tools.

As the popular phrase goes “the skill is not within the tool, but within the craftsman” is very true.

However, many people believe the opposite.

Regardless, every craftsman or DIY’er started with something simple.

My First Tool Purchase

I started making things with a craftsman circular saw and a Ryobi miter saw.

Essentially, I purchased these tools to cut plywood and 2x4s to board up my house 3 days before Hurricane Katrina in August of 2005.

Before this tool purchase, I had a drill and an assortment of cheap screwdrivers and wrenches.

Both of these tools served me well for a long time.

Tool Buying Tips

Ultimately, I encourage you to buy tools as you need them. 

Over time, your tool collection will grow and your own style will emerge.

These tools are by no means the #1 tools on the market.  Rather, they are simply tools I use b/c they work for me.  

Additionally, I own more tools that are not in this list because I don’t recommend them. 

Ultimately, take all that with a grain of salt because I haven’t tried every tool out there.

Best Epoxy Resin Tools and Materials

It’s not hard to figure out I like to work with Epoxy Resin.  In turn, I decided all things epoxy resin related needed it’s own section.

Business Tools

The tools below help me run this website more efficiently.  In short, they are important to me and I use them multiple times per day.
