Friends are often asking Mike which tools they need for projects. Sometimes they ask me too, but I just give them a blank confused stare, refer them back to the husband, and continue looking at pretty things. I do know that the right tools are important, I mean they must be since there are sooo many in my garage. I asked Mike to write a shopping list to help you be the best Fixer Upper you can be. He also made you an easy printable list of power and hand tools to bring with you to the store. There are many more power tools, but Mike says these are the best five to start with and relatively easy to operate. Here is his list of Five Beginner Power Tools for Every Fixer Upper.
