10 Stocking Stuffers for $5-15

Posted by Ben Thompson on 12.15.10

1. Spyder Scraper ($13) - this blade turns a reciprocating saw into a power scraper


2. 5-in-1 Screwdriver ($7)

3. 100 pack of Utility Knife Blades ($10) - fresh, sharp blades make projects go quicker and safer

4. Comfortable Safety Glasses (Consider Cheater  - 1x or 2x magnification) ($15) - if they aren't comfortable they won't be worn but few people naturally spend a lot on them


5. Hearing protection - (1) Ear Muff Style ($10) - quick & effective - a must for every woodworker

6. Box of disposable ear plugs ($5-10) - when muffs feel clunky or project helpers are close to loud noises

7. A magnetic feather board ($10-15) - it's never cool to be a 4-fingered carpenter


8. Plastic push stick ($4-6) - ditto

9. Retractable Carpenter's Pencil Holder ($5) - you can't put a pencil in your ear when you're wearing safety glasses

10. Open mouth tool bag ($15) - load just the tools you'll need for today's work into one of these
