10 Stocking Stuffers for $5 – $15

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 Cheaters  – 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
