This table saw was one of my first large tools. I couldn’t do what I do without it.
However, if your DIY’er is just starting out, and you can only afford one saw, I would suggest going with a compound miter saw. If there is a large project to be done, The Home Depot can make your large cuts (rips) for you, then you can finish the trim cuts yourself with a miter saw.
On the smaller scale, you can do a lot with a Black & Decker Jig Saw and a . . .
. . . circular saw Used properly, these can both help you do big jobs.
There so some tools that you don’t need often, but when you do, you’re so glad you have them. My Dremel Multi-Max is that such tool.
Every DIY’er must have a good drill. I have these 2 DEWALT drills and 3 Ryobi drills I prefer having 2 for building so I can use a drill bit in one and a screw bit in the other. The reason I have so many is because I have some indoors, and outdoors.
I highly recommend a battery powered Ryobi BRAD NAILER . I have an air compressor, but I prefer using battery powered tools so that they are very portable.
I have used several different paint sprayers until I found this Finish Max by HomeRight Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer . It’s the perfect paint sprayer for projects, never lets me down and gives the the best finish I could ever hope for.
I use my Kreg R3 Jr. Pocket Hole Jig System . in all of my builds. This pocket hole jig gives nice tight joints, and is very affordable at around $40, not including the clamp.
The Kreg Jig is so easy to use, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it.
Speaking of clamps, these Irwin Quick Clamps are so handy when you work alone. They are my extra hands on all of my projects. A Level makes a great straight edge as well as allowing you to get things straight.
Although I own a palm sander, my sander of choice is this an orbital sander .
Because I’m not really good with math, this combination square really helps me get my projects even on all sides.
Move a lot of tables? Check out these small dollies that I added wood to. I could never move this table alone without these little helpers.
Need a good stocking stuffer? Pick up some Gorilla Wood Glue .
More stocking stuffers? Minwax products come in handy for so many of my projects. This Minwax Wipe-On Poly and Polycrylic are my standbys, but their new Express Products have really helped me out lately.
If you’re really in a hurry, or you don’t know what to buy your weekend warrior, a gift card from The Home Depot would be perfect!
I’m hoping for a new trim router this year, what’s on YOUR wish list?
