I’ve been kicking around an idea for a while to write a series of articles and resources that detail different sets of tools based on the project at hand. Since I’ve used a lot of tools on a menagerie of projects, it seems right to try to share some of what I’ve learned along the way. Perhaps it will even prompt you to undertake a new project.

The format of the series will be pretty simple. First will be a description of the project at hand, something like replacing baseboard trim or building a raised garden bed. Following that comes the Tools of the Trade section where I will go into detail about what tools are appropriate for the project and why. This will also be an opportunity to say what you can get a way with if you don’t want to buy more stuff as well as a list of what I would recommend a different price points. Finally I’ll try to end every article with a full write-up detailing how I did the project and perhaps any lessons I took away from it.

With that I’ll leave you with a simple task: think of and propose a project that we can do and highlight in this series!
