They empower you to build your own furniture, turn raw materials into art, and fix what’s broken.
But before you can do any of that, you have to figure out how your tools work, and conquer your fear, overwhelm, and frustration
— so you can start making stuff.
If the powerful spinning blades of your saw freak you out a little bit…
Or you keep stripping screws every time you try to use a drill …
And you’ve wished for a super simple, non-intimidating, start-from-the-beginning walkthrough of how to use each tool…
Then you, my friend, are in the right place.
