Cool tool: hands-free laser

If you tend to do projects on your own, add a hands-free laser level to your toolbox. It’s like having an extra pair of hands when you’re working alone and they make hanging things straight a breeze. The laser level in the picture is actually on a ceiling, staying in place without using any adhesive. This tool also comes in very handy to install a hanging room divider.

How to make a frame

Making a frame perfectly straight with 90 degree angles isn’t easy without proper tools. The secret to making them perfect every time is using corner clamps: they hold the pieces in place at 90 degrees while you nail or screw them together. You can see how I used 3″ corner clamps to make a frame for my DIY hanging jewelry box. Once you see how simple it is to make a frame, you’ll just be looking for excuses to make them!
