Part of being a builder involves having a heightened appreciation for what you can do with two hands. Sometimes it feels like we as a society have lost touch with the things we can do and build ourselves, which is (to some degree) what has turned my craft into an item of public spectacle.

While I sometimes wish I was piecing together colonial-style chairs with a hammer and hand-cut mortises in a low-lit workshop, I certainly don’t take for granted the technology and tools that give my hands the power to do more. The tools that are perhaps most tied to my ability to do more and keep my projects moving? Simple drills and drivers.

That’s why I was excited to team up with the Home Depot to try out the RYOBI ONE+ Drill/Driver & Impact Driver Kits. Each made to be the perfect extension of your hands during construction and hobby projects, these RYOBI kits are a great addition to any workshop. Check out my review of these products and try them out for yourself!
