Random Orbit Sander

A good power sander can make your life a lot easier when refinishing or making over furniture. I recommend a random orbiting sander with variable speed control to help you smooth out reclaimed wood or remove old paint on furniture. Also to help prevent or lessen dust getting every where be sure to get a sander with attached dust bag. The sander I recommend is the DEWALT D26451K Corded 3 Amp 5-Inch Random Orbit Sander with Cloth Dust Bag. Is more expensive than other similar sanders, however this one will last you a long time.

Power Drill with Drill Bits

If you don't buy any other tools on this list, a Power Drill is a must have. A cordless power drill makes so many DIY projects so much faster and easier. I use my power almost on every project, from putting together furniture to hanging wall decor a power drill is a DIY'er's best friends.I have used a Black & Decker Drill for years, this is the drill I recommend Black & Decker LD120VA 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Drill/Driver with 30 Accessories.

Air Compressor & Various Nailers/Staplers

An air compressor with nailer and stapler are valuable tools for a DIY'er. They make building, creating furniture, and reupholstering furniture so much easier. There are countless project where air tools are helpful. Pneumatic nail gun also makes adding molding and trim with ease. If you are looking for a a good starter kit I recommend PORTER-CABLE PCFP12234 3-Tool Combo Kit. This a quality set that gives you all the you need to get started.

Laser Level

Combine a laser level with a stub finder and you have the perfect tool hanging everything in your home straight and secure.
