We are a young couple remodeling our first house...one outdated / ugly thing at a time. This blog documents our remodel projects and ideas.


RTH Answers - Tool School

"I can't do that because I don't know a thing about tools" or "Tools scare me." I hear these phrases all the time. Tools should not keep you from doing a project...they are supposed to make the project easier to complete. So why are they scary or can stop a project before it even starts?

Recently, a friend asked me to school her on tools. Her goal was to get the basic tool knowledge from a straight-talker (me) so she could start on her project list. And after a few quick talks and pointers, she was able to tackle a project DIY-style. She affectionately called it "Tool School" and said that it gave her the confidence she needed.

And that's my goal - I want to inspire people and instill confidence to try a project DIY style. And if tools are what is holding you back, I am going to school you so you can complete that project and not bat an eyelash at the tools involved. That is why I am super excited to announce the Remodel This House Tool School!

Each school class will focus on a specific tool. I will describe the tool and its parts, show you how it works, and tell about the tool in not-too-technical terms. The first class is Monday morning. Hope you can make it!

Blog with video and pics. Live feed sounds like fun...but my "real job" would get in the way. ;) I will be able to answer any questions though.
