Your Own Tool Box

6 years ago

You deserve your own tool box! First, so you can learn to use the tools….second, so you can find the tools! (Just beware, since your husband can’t find his, he’ll be BORROWING yours.) I gave my daughter a tool box for Christmas and she said it made her feel powerful! Let’s build a toolbox. Here’s what you need: A large carry around tool box…you will be adding more and more things to it. A claw hammer Different sizes of Phillips and Regular Flat Tip screwdrivers A metal tape measure. 12′ should do it. Small and large pliers An awl Side and straight cutters A utility knife Wood glue Sand paper and a block Flashlight Safety glasses Packs of nails….both finish and common Wood screws Later, you can add: An electric drill and bits A jigsaw A circular saw I love my girlfriends, so please take this the right way. Don’t buy the pink, cutsie little toolbox with the pink tools! Go into the big boy tool department and grunt, spit, lie and scratch while you are there! We’re going to WORK with these tools…..we are not there to be cute!
