Online Power Tools Classes!

Does the thought of using power tools both excite you and make you break out in a sweat? Are you tired of waiting for your spouse to fix and build projects for you? Do you find that most power tools tutorials skip the basic info you need to feel comfortable with using that power tool for the very first time?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you need a down-to-earth DIY Power Tools course that will walk you through step-by-step how to use the most popular power tools so that you can decorate, improve, and maintain your home yourself!
I’ll walk you through how to safely use a jigsaw, circular saw, brad nailer, miter saw, power drill, orbital sander, and router. Once you understand the basics of these tools, you’ll be able to enjoy getting accurate and consistent results on your projects without the frustration of messing up your project.
I’ll also help you set up a functional work area (even if you have no space), teach you how to safely clamp your wood, walk you through how to select the right tool and blade for the project, as well teach you to identify the “must have” DIY accessories for your power tools (and how to use the accessories!)
Power tools can be intimidating, but with me virtually holding your hand, walking you through what to do at each step of using these power tool, you will be able to let go of the fear that is holding you back from taking your DIY skills to the next level.  
When you’re done with this course, you will feel empowered to use power tools and will feel confident that you can safely and accurately use each power tool to do your own DIY projects.
