Tools & DIY Project Supplies Reviews
I get a lot of questions about some of the tools, wear, or supplies that I use in my work. I figured I’d make a list of some of the best purchases I’ve made over the years. No one of these items is sponsored and I don’t have any bias.
One thing to note about this list is that I personally purchased some of these items and I’m still happy that I did. While there are a few expensive items on this list, most of them are under $50, making them accessible for everyone. You might even find a great stocking stuffer for your favorite DIYer or craftsman.
Hi, I’m Paul Gordon!
As a boy, I have fond memories of my dad and grandad always taking on any construction job that needed to be done around the house. I suppose you could say that the DIY spirit was ingrained in me from a young age.
And certainly when I first got a house that didn’t belong to somebody else and that I could play with myself well I needed to do some serious DIY. It was an old house built of stone that had nothing done for maybe 40 or 50 years. And I soon learned how to rewire a building put central heating in and demolished and plasters too many walls.
After moving to the United States, I felt like I was starting from scratch, despite having almost 10 years of experience working as a contractor outside of the US. Everything was different, from the building materials to the language, and the way of doing business was completely new to me.
I was dedicated and hardworking, so I started doing what I knew best – remodeling and building. Now, after over 20 years in the US, I am retired. My hobby is woodworking and running this blog. I hope you find the information I provide valuable and helpful.
