Robert Davis says:

This is a great video with the perfect tool list. I just retired this past year after 44 years in carpentry, and I've carried your exact list of tools in my nail bags for at least the last 40 years. I prefer an Estwing hammer too, and I don't have elbow or shoulder problems, and for many years, we drove all the nails in a house or barn with our Estwing hammers not nail guns or high dollar titanium hammers.

I love how the video is short and in point. No abundant unnecessary things to make a 3:49 minute video into a +17 min.

This guy is the bomb. I have all of these tools- but then again, I have probably a hundred or more accumulated over the years and most recently a huge construction/renovation project; I feel like I’m always looking for the right tool for something but can’t ever find it! I realize this is more of an organizational/personal problem, but the point is it is so nice to have this “quick guide” to pick which ones to keep handy in my tool belt/bag. I happen to agree, these are the ones I always end up needing the most. This channel is definitely worth subscribing to and following- I love the way he explains things for some reason. It’s simple but not mind-numbingly so, and it doesn’t feel like I just wasted 15 or more minutes of my life trying to find one point or tip. It bugs the crap out of me when people in videos repeat themselves over and over and/or take forever to get to what the title of the video implies they will be demonstrating or talking about. Maybe those are preferable/helpful for some folks, but for someone with an existing working knowledge of general woodworking/tools and just needs tips or clarification here and there, this guy is where it’s at! Thanks so much!
