~ Games ~
What’s your fav tool?
Today’s giveaway sponsor is infamous for her DIY work aprons, so it seemed suitable to talk tools on this one!
I can’t live without my tools! No tools would be equivalent to painting with no paint. Once you get productive with them on a reg basis, you simply can’t do without.
My fav and most used tool ever is:
… my cordless drill and AAALLL the fittings.
Scary factor – 0/5. These are FUN!
Used for – predrilling holes in metal or wood, screwing in stuff, making bigger round holes, etc etc.
Oh my word, I could not breathe one day without my cordless drill. I personally love the lighter weight styles plus those that come with lithium batteries, resulting in a loooong charge.
If you buy this thing in a set, it’s MUCH cheaper. My set came with two drills as well as two batteries. Always have two batteries! Oh oh! And this one has a little LED light that comes on when you use it too.
Ever wonder what all this stuff is?
I use all the doodads that are in the matching case. The premade kits like these don’t have all the options and aren’t the highest of quality, but they get the average DIYer by, and I like the fact that you can tote the necessities around with you.
The gold drills are to predrill wood holes so you don’t split fussy wood when pushing screws through it. I use them all the time.
The aluminum looking drills are to drill holes through metal. And those funny things on the right side are to drill bigger holes in wood for electrical cords and such.
And all these fantastical screwdriver type tips at your fingertips is like a jewelry box. I’ll admit most of mine are stripped. I’ve used this stuff hard while renovating my home the past 2 years and I’m due for a new set, however you can replace the fittings separately. Doncha love that lovely rust patina that took over when I left them outside for a week? (oops)
Interested in more tool talk? The above info is part of a larger post on must-have tools for an upcoming Workshop Series post, so stay tuned! I’ll educatecha.
What tool do I wish I had?
I totally want a panel saw! Yeah, I don’t mess around. Unlike a table saw, you work this thing vertically and to me, is a much safer route than a typical tablesaw. My own table saw scares me and sits dusty in a corner. For longer straight cuts, in my little DIY dream world, this would be the tool for me!
What’s your favorite tool of choice? What tool do you wish you had?
~ Food ~
Oh my. Caramelized apple waffle pastries with cinnamon and whipped cream is a creation from Cottage Sisters. This is from SNS #29. I could totally go for these… I need to quit posting these amazing food creations when hungry. Gaaaa…
~ Presents ~
Miss Polly is at it again! Something brand new has just hit blogland and here it is…
Ohhhh… what does this lovely grainy fabric and sweet embellishments belong to? Should I keep you in TOTAL suspense? Hmmm.. nahhh… I’ll show you one.
