You’ll see a few brand-names cropping up again and again in my builds. The most noticeable are DeWalt, Kreg, Evolution and more recently Ryobi have joined the party. Unless I call it out loud and clear, NOTHING is sponsored. Everything you see, I bought with my own money through ordinary retail channels (typically Amazon), or received as a birthday/Christmas present from my truly awesome family.
There are no reviews in this article! Just a quick introduction to the major ranges I use.
If you’re about to begin building your tool collection, I only really have two bits of
advice experience to share:
- Do your research! Use the “what problem are you trying to solve?” method to help guide you.
- Invest in quality! I can’t tell you how many “cheap” tools I’ve thrown away, but I’ve never regretted buying a quality tool.
As a side-note: when I started recreating this blog site, I reached out to every one of the brand names you’ll see on this page. Nothing sinister at all, just asking permission to use their logo and product images. Evolution and Kreg said yes. DeWalt haven’t replied, and Ryobi said no.
