1.Needle Nose Pliers
Needle nose pliers are essential for making jewelry. They can be used for other do it yourself projects too though. I mainly use them for making necklaces and rings. They work great if you need to hold something tiny during a project and don’t want to use your fingers.
When hanging up pictures, or anything really, a level is needed to make sure it hangs evenly. After doing a project you want to make sure it doesn’t hang lopsided on the wall, you want it to look it’s best. Using a level with help with this.
A palm sander makes sanding wood so much easier and gets the job done in a quarter of the time it would take to do it by hand with just a sheet of sand paper. Will and I recently built a table (I’ll be posting about it soon!) and we first tried sanding it by hand. We got the bottom and middle shelves done in about 40 minutes. We switched to a palm sander to see how fast it would work, we’ve never used one before, and it took about 5 minutes to do the top and the rest of the table. Basically, palm sanders are time savers.
I use my tape measure at least once a day. It’s so handy! I use it for all of my DIY projects to get the correct lengths, widths, and heights.
Let me just start out by saying staple guns are really fun to use. With that being said, use them responsibly! They are great for attaching things. I used my staple gun for an upcoming DIY headboard I’ll be posting.
All of these tools serve a purpose and will help you save time and money. I use these tools the most when I do DIY projects and thought I’d share them with you! There are so many other tools out there that DIY-ers can use, the possibilities are endless, as are the DIY projects. So get to it and make, make, make!
