Hey There Friends!! I have gotten so many requests for the tools I use for my projects. So today, I am sharing my top 7 essential power tools for DIY at home. While power tools can seem intimidating at first, they are relatively easy to use. When using power tools, it is important to make sure that you are taking all safety precautions seriously every time you use them.
As a budding DIYer, my preferred brand has been Ryobi. The Ryobi brand offers an 18v System that is compatible with a lot of the home improvement tools they offer. This is great because it is cost effective, budget friendly and helps me with stream lining my choices for flexibility and storage.
The brad nailer is by far one of my favorite tools to use. I have used this on multiple home projects. The latest was the make over in my dining room. It is a cordless nailer and relatively easy to use.
This multi tool is amazing and a total game changer. I most recently used it for cutting crown molding already attached to the wall. It was a huge time saver. I love that it can also be used with a sander for hard to reach areas. It also comes with a Dremel attachment when the need arises.
This mitre saw is the first power tool I got. I have used it on a variety of projects to make, straight angled and beveled cuts. A mitre saw is one of the most essential power tools you need in your in your collection when embarking on DIY at home projects.
A sander is a tool that will almost always come in handy as you work on projects in your home. This will save you energy and time over manual sanding any day. It is a life saver and highly recommended.
Power Drill and Impact Driver
This drill and driver combo has been an excellent addition to my tool chest. They are both cordless and work off of the same 18v system as other tools mentioned above. The impact driver has proved very efficient and effective when the standard drill just doesn’t cut it. You won’t be sorry with this purchase. The impact driver is also available as a separate purchase.
I love that I can use this circular saw to make cuts on boards that I typically would have relied on my local home improvement store to make.
I have used this jig saw on multiple occasions to make straight cuts and curved cuts. It is a great portable tool to have and look forward to using it alot more in the future.

Other Tools I love
In addition to these tools. I have a few other tools that have been essential in making my DIY projects come to life.
As a one woman shop majority of the time, this laser measure tool is handy when measuring distances. I have used it on a variety of projects from installing beams to drapes. The possibilities are endless.
The Kreg Jig is an important tool to have if you are building projects that require perpendicular placement of lumber. It allows you to make pocket holes to adjoin to pieces in that manner.
This paint sprayer is almost the best invention ever. It has saved me a lot have paint brush strokes over the last 2 years and would highly recommend.
This Rip Cut tool can be used in conjunction with your circular saw to produce straight cuts every time. You wont be disappointed with this purchase.
I discovered this laser level tool a while back and it has been sitting unused until I embarked on the wainscoting trim project recently. I am not sure why I never used it before but this tool is amazing. It provides straight lines every time. You can use it for things like hanging picture frames to the more advanced project in your home.
