How Power Tools Will Make You A Better Crafter

Sharing is Caring! ❤️

Yes, there was a time when the words power tool, orbital sander, or circular saw were synonymous with men – well, move over men. We’ve got this one nailed! I’ve always thrived on my crafting projects.

Not only are they a great way to repurpose and transform old furniture or create awe-inspiring new projects around the house, but they also make for much fun and a wonderful way for us to zone out and leave all the real-world worries behind. 

Power Tools

The Power Of Power Tools

When I started crafting, I was afraid of using power tools. After all, they were only for men to use right? Thank goodness that ideology changed years ago. Now, women use and love their power tools just as much as men do. 

There are certain power tools that I can’t live without. Oh! And, of course, they are mostly cordless too. With the advancement in Lithium-ion battery technology, cordless power tools have been developed to provide exceptional performance. 

Below, you will find a list of the top power tools that I’ve come to use for almost all of my crafting and DIY projects. I’ve found an awesome place to buy them too called The Anglia Tool Centre – I get a wide variety of power tools to choose from, top quality, and their customer service is the best! 

Anglia Tool Centre is a division of the Ridgeon Group. Ridgeons have been in business since 1911 and are now one of the largest independent family-owned timber and builders merchants in the country, supplying materials for building homes.

Please note that the products from Anglia Tool Centre are also available at local hardware stores for USA and Canadian readers. I’ve found a few myself locally, which is awesome as well! 

Cordless Screwdrivers

I don’t know what I’d do without this Black and Decker Cordless Screwdriver power tool. Typically, I use it for crafting and DIY projects, and it’s a real game-changer. I installed all of my beautiful new hardware within minutes for this update I’ve completed recently.

Furthermore, I have a backup battery that is always charged and ready to go whenever a project calls my name! Cordless screwdrivers are a must-have for all DIY projects from installing a toilet paper holder to tightening loose screws on my makeup vanity. 

Cordless Power Sanders

I used to feel nervous about using an Electric Sander. My fears were unfounded. This Black and Decker Cordless Power Sander makes sanding easy and affordable. They are so easy to use and a must-have, especially for furniture repurposing or refinishing.

of course, I relied heavily on this for two recent projects, especially this one, as the table needed to be heavily sanded. That power sander saved the day and made my project move along much faster. 

Nail Guns

Another power tool I can’t be without is my heavy-duty staple and nail gun. This WEN Nail Gun makes everything from reupholstering seat covers to repairing furniture easy and it’s affordable too. I also use this to repair some antique furniture pieces I’ve bought for refinishing. 

Hedge Trimmers

While you might not use this GARCARE Corded Electric Hedge Trimmer for crafting, you can create beautifully crafted garden and trim hedges. And let’s not forget about our gardening power tools! I just love this trimmer and use it for all my shrubs and gardening needs. And at $40, it’s affordable as well.

Dremel Power Tools

The Dremel’s use is limited by only the large array of attachments. I use my Dremel Power Tool for so many crafting and DIY projects. Furthermore, I highly recommend getting one first and foremost. This Dremel comes with 5 Attachments & 40 Accessories- Engraver, Sander, and Polisher- Perfect for Grinding, Cutting, Wood Carving, Sanding, and Engraving.

Furthermore, this is a great way to ease you into using power tools. I have such a good time buying additional attachments for them! 

Power Tools – The Bottom Line

The bottom line is you don’t have to be afraid of using power tools. If you follow all the safety guidelines, wear protective gear, and always be mindful of your actions, you will have the most awesome crafting and gardening experiences.

Moreover, I have a garage full of empowering power tools and I can’t express how they’ve been a real game-changer. I’m so proud of myself and I have to say, I now have my hubby beat when it comes to using them. I’m just a regular pro power tool user! 

And remember, don’t be afraid of them—they will allow you to complete your DIY projects more effectively and professionally. Additionally, don’t forget to wear protective gear at all times when you have a power tool in your hands.
