DIY Starter Kit

Updated: Aug 15, 2020

You want to start DIYing and woodworking, but not sure where to start when it comes to tools? It can definitely be overwhelming when you first look at everything, so if you're not sure exactly what you need, the Ryobi One+ line is a great place to start.


This is not sponsored - I just like the line, especially for beginners.


This kit is a great bang for your buck, and while some of the tools you may not need in the beginning of your DIY journey, they are great to have for once you get to that point:


The set is currently only $199 and includes the following:

Circular saw - This saw is very versatile. I used it to cut my shiplap panels and will be using it to cut the circular base of my planter stands.

Reciprocating saw - This saw is perfect for demolition of any kind - wood, plumbing, etc. The only thing it can't cut through is rock. This is the saw I will be using to take down our wooden patio cover in the backyard.

Drill - Pretty self explanatory. If you don't have a drill bit set, I suggest grabbing this one.

Impact Driver - Basically a drill on steroids. The drill bit kit linked above will cover this tool as well.

Multi-Tool - As the name suggests, this is an extremely versatile tool that comes with both blades for cutting, and an adapter that turns it into a sander. There are also several other attachments from different brands that can attach to the Ryobi multi-tool and convert it to a jigsaw, auto-hammer, etc. It's definitely a great tool to have on hand.


You also get a light and two batteries.The great thing about this set is that they have a lot of tools in this line that work with the batteries, so you can slowly build your collection without the need to buy additional or different batteries (which can add up quickly).


As your collection grows, there are some items that you may want to consider adding:


Brad Nailer (nail gun)

Orbit Sander

Jig Saw

Miter Saw


Outside of the power tools listed above, you will also want a set of screwdrivers, a hammer, a tape measure (or two), a crowbar, a utility knife and a couple of clamps.


Have any questions? Send them my way and I will be happy to answer them!


Happy DIYing!
