Hitachi drills are very durable and relatively compact – we’ve used this drill’s 18V big brother for over two years, and it has never let us down. Hitachi DS12DVF3 12V Cordless Drill via […]

While most 6-drawer 12″ deep chests have 3 full-width drawers and 3 x 1/3 width drawers, this one […]

Rockler’s woodworking & hardware catalog is one of my favorites to browse through because they often introduce new products that I otherwise might not find out about, and because they also typically include exclusive coupon codes and sale prices. For example, Rockler’s February catalog included a coupon that was good for free shipping through mid-March. Despite mostly catering towards avid […]
