Screwdrivers: phillips head and flathead and a few different sizes. You can get some pretty functional screwdrivers at the dollar store.
Hammer: A shoe works but the real thing is better
Drill: one very valuable tools. Get a decent one at Home Depot or Lowes. They have some nice ones on clearance.
An assortment of screws and nails.
Stud finder: Yeah, I know....all women need a "stud" finder. They really do help you find the stud in the wall so you can find the strongest place to install a nail or screw. They happen to be pretty cheap too.
2 pairs of plyers. A needle nose and a regular. They come in very handy. You can also get them at the dollar store.
Glue Gun: What a great invention. This comes in very, very handy.
Tape Measure: Can't live without this.
A decent saw and a wood mitre box: You will use these for sure.
These are the basic tools you will need. I started with most of these and added more along the line. I now have a nice collection of tools my "husband" has bought for me over the years. By the way, he doesn't use them.
There are specific tools for specific jobs. We'll talk more about that in the future. 01 02 03
