My Top 5 Beginner DIY Power Tools

If you are looking to start doing DIY projects around your home, here is a list of my top 5 power tools I think you should get. I took a look at all the tools that I have, and pick out 5 that I had to have. Yours might be different, let me know if it is.



I have two drills. The one on the left is a regualar drill and the one on the right is a impact drill. It was a deal that I couldn’t pass up. Plus is have to have two. You can put a drill bit on the regular drill and your phillips tip in the other and not have to switch between the two when you are doing a large project.

Orbital Sander


I love this little guy. If you are going to be doing a lot of wood projects, I would recommend one of these. Its a great finish sander, you can put different levels of grit sandpaper on it. I do a lot of wood projects so this was a must have.



A jigsaw is great for cutting curves. Plus you can switch the blade out and cut different materials.

Chop  Saw “Miter Saw”

chop saw

This was the first big power tool that I ever owned. I have had it for about 10 years. Its great for making clean straight cut and cutting angles. I have done a ton of projects with this saw, its even been to Mexico.

Circular Saw


This one was hard. If I couldn’t have my table saw, I would want this. Its great for ripping down large sheet material. You can make angle cuts if need.
