Hello, everybody! Ashley here, and I write a blog at Bigger Than The Three Of Us . You might recall the first two projects I featured on Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body: my DIY scrap wood banner and my DIY moss wreath.
Although I enjoy DIY projects that need tools, I wouldn’t consider myself a “seasoned” DIYer. With woodworking and making tiny projects, I’m just getting started. It might be overwhelming to try to select what kinds of tools you need for projects and to learn about or purchase those tools. I’m here to help you feel less stressed out today. I’m going to list my top ten DIY tools for beginners and explain what tasks each one can be used for. Are you prepared to begin?
I’ve ranked the tools according to how simple I think they are to pick up and use with confidence. For your convenience, this article includes some affiliate links. To view my complete disclosure policy, click here.
This spray paint attachment can cause you to question if it truly qualifies as a tool. Oh, but it is. You can pull the trigger to release the paint by attaching this component to the end of any spray paint can. If you’ve ever attempted to spray paint a huge object, you are aware of how quickly your finger can become uncomfortable and exhausted. This tiny item is such a cheap and practical purchase.

I feel a little odd including this on the list of tools, but using an hammer is uncomfortable for some people. It certainly was for me a few years ago, I mean. In my opinion, building gallery walls and hanging pictures are the two best uses of a hammer. My biggest piece of advice is to not worry about making mistakes. Simply begin pounding nails. Even if you have to reposition your nail a few inches after you put it in for most regions, the picture frame will conceal it. Simply grab a hammer and give it a shot. Take on a gallery wall after you’ve driven a few nails. They offer you excellent value for your money. Want more frames that match but don’t have any yet? Give your frames a fresh coat of paint by using that convenient spray attachment:)

A stapler will be your best friend if you’re just starting out with DIY and don’t want to spend a lot of money on tools. You may use them for light-weight wood projects like a DIY Planter Box because they are often about $30.

You can also take on quick and simple upholstery jobs like DIY Headboard or c, which involve draping cloth on a chair. The options are truly limitless.
Bigger Than The Three Of Us 1 is a fantastic all-purpose tool. Although it’s not as impressive as a table saw, you can do so much with it because it just costs about $10! For instance, you can use wood scraps to create your own light, much like Tasha did with this inexpensive DIY light.
Did you aware that there are many drill sizes? I was using a huge drill when I initially started doing projects on my own. Because the drill was so heavy, I was unable to hold it straight. I didn’t realize there were lightweight drills that were a little bit smaller than some of the bigger drills until last year, but they still did the job. Working on tasks with a drill that I can lift gives me more comfort. You must be, right?
Alternately, organize your toys by hanging some storage baskets inside using the drill.

An Bigger Than The Three Of Us 6 will be your closest friend if you want to start out with any kind of woodworking job. It’s not a pricey gadget, and using it doesn’t seem daunting. You will wonder why it took you so long to buy one after using it for a while.
With tiny sanding blocks, projects like this DIY chalkboard would be quite challenging, yet the Bigger Than The Three Of Us 6 produces excellent results.

The Bigger Than The Three Of Us 8 would be my personal favorite if I had to choose. It can be used for a wide variety of purposes. The projects might be anything from a DIY upholstered headboard to a r Bigger Than The Three Of Us 9. A Bigger Than The Three Of Us 8 greatly widens the field of micro-woodworking tasks.
I’ve only recently begun using an 1, and I’m blown away by how simple it makes sinking screws at an angle. This woodworking tool is very user-friendly and reasonably priced. With this, you can construct planter boxes, tables, cabinets, drawers, and more.
It’s really simple to frame out a builder-grade mirror in your bathroom with some reclaimed wood and an 1. It’s the ideal project to get you started using this technology, and it also offers excellent value.
We’ve used the 4 as our go-to saw for almost everything. It can be utilized in a variety of circumstances when working on several tasks at once with a modest set of tools. The saw is one of those items that you don’t need a lot of space for because it is portable and rather tiny. A miter saw can be used to make a plank wall, a pipe shelf built-in, or perhaps both.
The 7 is not the least of these. This tool gives me the most anxiety as a semi-novice do-it-yourselfer, yet it opens up a lot of possibilities for tasks and can reduce your time in half. This tool makes it much easier to complete any huge project, such as a DIY herringbone plank wall, an upholstery project, installing baseboards, etc.
What do you think, then? Are you prepared to expand your toolbox with some additional items? Do you concur with my list of the 10 essential DIY tools for beginners? With this list, I aim to inspire you to try a few new tools and advance your DIY abilities!
