There are a lot of tools and supplies that I love to use. Here is an ever expanding list of resources so you can grab them easily for yourself. I find it easier to just get moving on a project if I don’t have to make a decision on the right tools. I’ve done the work for you, this is a starting point. Feel free to ask me WHY I love the things I love…
