Rockler Must-Haves For Every DIYer

Remember this picture from way back in January when I said we were starting our remodeling?
This is what it looks like now.

I don’t know about you, but when you are putting up a new wall, drilling holes for electrical, hanging drywall, sanding down the mud and tape, and laying tile, then remodeling = a big mess.

Thankfully, The DIY Club and Rockler had something to help us out immensely. This Large Aluminum Dust Pan.
I wish I had pictures of how much we used this guy (measuring 16'' wide X 10'' Deep X 2 - 1/2'' High). He really was one of my best friends because he held so much and made cleanup faster and easier.

One of the additions we included in our new wall were these oak French doors.

My incredibly talented dad made them in his shop, Cabnicon.

One of the coolest tools he used to help him out were these Bench Cookies that also came from Rockler.
The have this rubberized material that keeps wood from sliding around, so you can use a router without having to hold the wood at the same time.

Definitely simplifying the process, and eliminating a safety hazard of trying to simultaneously hold the wood and machinery by yourself.

With over 15,000 products, Rockler is sure to have what you need for your DIY needs. They sure helped me!
