Goddess Repair Tools

What tools does a goddess need for furniture fixes and repairs? I asked myself that question two years ago. I have been collecting items needed to fix things.

This is really what you need to get started:

A good source of material

  • Safety goggles – safety first!
  • Masks like doctors and nurses wear – safety first!
  • Latex gloves – safety first!

Tools For Goddess House Repairs:

  • Hammer.
  • Battery operated screw driver and bit set (Black and Decker is a pretty good set).
  • Regular screwdriver (with various sized bits in the handle, so you only need one).
  • Pliers.
  • Crescent wrench (a small one is just fine to start with).
  • 10′ tape measure.
  • Metal putty knife.
  • Level.
  • Box cutter.
  • Paint brushes (1″ and 2″ size).
  • Assortment of screws.
  • Assortment of nails (finishing (tiny heads) and regular head).
  • A plunger (I have one on every floor!)
  • White cloth rags for cleanup.
  • Drop Cloths (the cheaper ones are fine unless you are painting walls and have nice carpet.
  • Painters blue tape.

 

Tools For Goddess Furniture Repairs:

  • A hand sander – DeWalt is one of the better ones. It is money well spent.
  • Clamps (for holding things together during repairs, 12-24″ is good).
  • Wood glue (preferably Gorilla glue).
  • Epoxy wood (for filling gouges).
  • Sand paper – 80, 100, 150, 220 grits.
  • 0000 fine steel wool.

A great resource

Research materials at your fingertips. Start the collection small:

  • The internet. Try a couple different sites to see if you can get a consensus on the answers.
  • Home improvement and/or repair guides (both Home Depot & Black and Decker make good ones).
  • The Family Handyman Magazine (for repairs and furniture).

These are extras to buy for your workshop if you really get into it:

  • Dremil tool and bit set (for sanding groovescarving, polishing silver).
  • Kreg Jig (if you build things yourself).
  • Circular Saw (same as above).
  • Caulk (if you have the nerve to do bathroom and window repairs).
  • A simple, cheap work table in your laundry room.
  • A peg board and hooks on the wall for your small tools.

It may take a while to collect. Decide what you want to do first and get those tools. My first suggestion would be a reference book, that you can get at Barnes and Noble or Amazon. They tell you what is needed for each project. And build from there.
