Do me a favor, think for a minute about the average week in your workshop or furniture painting studio. Specifically, think about how many times you employ ‘work arounds.’
You know what I’m talking about, all the times you don’t have the right tool for the job so you improvise. So, you open paint cans with a screw driver, use masking tape to hold together a chair while the glue sets up, try to pry veneer off with the back of a hammer, you know what I’m saying.
Think about how much time you waste trying to get things done with the wrong tool!
So, this post is all about the small hand tools that Johanna and I use every single day that save us time and effort.
The tools we can’t live without...
The links you see throughout will take you to the Home Depot website, specifically to the brands we use and recommend.
This isn’t the end all be all list but these are the very basic necessities. You’ll find other tools that you love so please be sure to post them in the comments below.
