There’s no end to the impressive stuff handy YouTubers will make out of wood, metal, and plastic. Peter Brown, however, favors unorthodox building materials.
Tools are expensive, but so is having to replace your rolling tool chest, because you misplaced its key in your workshop and had to physically cut the lock open. So Craftsman’s new Pro Series storage units feature Bluetooth-connected locks that can be opened and secured using an app—just don’t lose your smartphone.
The claw hammer’s design has gone mostly unchanged for over 500 years, but Craftsman believes it’s finally time for an upgrade. The introduction of a pivoting claw on its new Flex Claw Hammer lets you maximize your leverage when removing nails or prying boards at awkward angles.
Even woodworkers celebrate Star Wars day. For Frank Howarth, the project was obvious: construct a wooden Death Star.
