- LeonDesigns Safety Glasses Anti-Fog Goggles $9 – we all need a pair a safety glasses when it comes to wood working and DIY projects. These are my favorite ones and they also come in a multitude of colors and patterns.
- Weatherproof Tiltable Portable Work Light with Large Adjustable Metal Hook $17 – This is one of those things you didn’t know you needed till you demoed the whole room and realize your light source is completely gone! We’ve used this for every project we’ve done and love that it has a hook to hang high.
- Amazon Basics Folding Sawhorse – Set of 2 $49 – I got my first set of saw horses 5 years ago and even having a full on work bench and workshop before these are always being used.
- Bosch Blaze Pro GLM165-40 165ft Laser Distance Measure with Color Backlit Display $79 – I got this for Cody for fathers day and I ended up using it more than he did so it deserved a place on the DIYer gift guide this year.
- Custom Leathercraft IP489X Suede Tool Bag $18 – I didn’t understand the tool belt thing till I bought this one, it’s small and a great size for your hip and it doesn’t get in the way when bending a squatting. It has enough compartments for screws, nails, measuring tape, hammer and can even hold the power drill.
- DEWALT 20V MAX* Cordless Brad Nailer $249 – this was one of THE BEST upgrades we’ve ever gotten when it comes to a brad nailer. We started off with the Ryobi one and got this one and it was the best purchase for home improvement and woodworking projects. Its powerful and the was of use is insane!
- HANDLANDY Work Gloves for Women and Ladies $21 – I have tiny hands and love neutrals so these work gloves are my favorite! they come in a pack of 2 which is great for one pair for gardening and landscaping and the other for woodworking/projects.
- Kreg KMA2685 Rip-Cut Circular Saw Guide $39 – I have a table saw and I still use a rip cut with my circular saw. This is really nice for ripping down large plywood and sheets of anything for larger projects. When you’re DIYing by yourself there isn’t always someone there to help hold the 4×8 sheet of plywood not he table saw.
- DEWALT TSTAK Tool Organizer, Holds Up To 44 lbs $28 – I love the idea of a workshop and housing all of your tools and supplies there, but sometimes if not all the time our tools and supplies are in the house where the project is. I use these for our screws and have 3! I separate them by Kreg screws, wood screws, and exterior screws.
- Glass Handyman Christmas Ornaments $8 – my mom gave me a measuring tape ornament years ago and I didn’t know how happy it would make me very Christmas when I’d take it out to decorate the tree. We love sentimental ornaments and these are so fun.
- DEWALT ATOMIC 20V MAX* Cordless Drill, 1/2-Inch $85 – we’ve tried tons of different power drills and I love the shorter profile of this dealt power drill. It make it easier to maneuver and fits in more spaces without an attachment.
- FastCap PSSR-16 16 Foot Pro Carpenter Standard Reverse Measuring Tape $7 – If you’re not much for the digital measuring tape this one is amazing! Its a woodworking measuring tape so it shows you down to the 1/16th of an inch including a pencil sharpener!
- DEWALT Titanium Nitride Coated Drill Bit Set $29 – there’s one thing we never have enough of drill bits. These ones are our favorite and hold up so well.
- DEWALT 20V MAX Cordless Wet-Dry Vacuum $79 – PSA don’t use your regular household vacuum for woodworking, drywall dust and DIY/home improvement projects — IT WILL EXPLODE! Not that I know from experience or anything, so do yourself a favor and get one just for projects. This one was a prime day purchase for us and we absolutely love it. Compact enough and strong enough for everything!
- Kreg Pocket-Hole Jig 520PRO $99 – we’ve been using Kreg pocket hole jigs since starting DIY and home improvement projects over 7 years ago! These tools are so intuitive and user friendly no matter your skill level. The 520PRO is versatile for a multitude of projects and also comes with a starter kit of screws, clamps and bits!
