Tools

There are tools that make every job easier. Some are essential, some are just nice.

Each building project has its own set of tools that make it easier and more efficient. However, there are some basic tools that every home should own.

These are the tools you'll need for concrete. Some, like a mixer, are not necessary, but will make a big job easier.

Metal is one of those materials that requires specialized tools, mostly electrical. Some are more of a luxury than a necessity, but others are fundamental.

Wood is a softer material than metal and can handle a lot more hand tools, which are generally cheaper.

Making a two-man shovel is super easy and can really help reduce the labor involved in shoveling.
