Very cool coffe tool table December 22, 2010

Filed under: We like it — ToolGrrlz @ 9:03 am

When we get our office HQ together this just may need to be in it. How cool is this table we found at Freshome…although in our opinion, there is no such thing as a useless tool.

Woo hoo! One of our favorite design blogs seems to be thinking the same thing we are! Check out the anatomy of a drill post here on Design Sponge for all info a grrl could want on a drill that we really want!  They cover drill bits, types, and info for first time buyers.  Very cool

Safety First

Filed under: Photos — ToolGrrlz @ 7:29 pm

It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.  Projects are fun and ideas are great, we love inspiration and all but the first thing that we want to encourage is safety.  The only tool related injury we have had is a broken finger (see X-ray) from using a hammer.  That’s right…a hammer.  It just goes to show that you can never be too careful.  We are having our first workshop in January and one of our main focuses will be on tool safety.
