Happy belated Father's Day to all you dads out there! Odds are, several of you scored a Home Depot gift card from someone who loves you. It's a pretty solid gift idea. I don't know about you, but Home Depot credit is as good as cash to me. It's gonna get spent.

I put together a list of my favorite tools and gadgets, all of which are available either online or in store. So keep scrolling to see what I think you should spend your Home Depot giftcards on.

Are you a music buff? I always have music on, especially when I'm driving or at home. I finally got a record player a few months ago, and have been slowly building up my vinyl collection. The player I have is inexpensive and came with small built-in speakers. They were TERRIBLE! I ended up plugging in a separate portable speaker every time I wanted to listen to an album. I really wanted a dedicated console table or cabinet where I could hook up my record player, have some storage, and hide a pair of bluetooth speakers. 

Everyone loves music. Why don't we have furniture with built-in speakers anymore?

I know it's not officially summer yet, but it feels like it here in Arizona already. You would think with all the planter projects I've built in the past, I would have a green thumb. Yeah... not so much. I am actually a serial plant killer, but for some reason I am determined to keep trying.

I was walking around my local Home Depot a couple weeks ago and I made a freaking awesome discovery! Apparently, my location has started carrying 3/4" thick, S4S Walnut!!! S4S stands for Surfaced on 4 Sides. That means the boards are already smooth, straight, and ready to work with. You don't have to have a planer or special equipment to be able to create something with my very favorite hardwood.

You're probably thinking "I'm a woodworker. I don't need wrenches." False. Whether it's tightening carriage bolts on table legs, or driving lag screws, I've often found myself needing a wrench or two to get the job done. I recently was sent the new Husky Universal Combination Wrench sets and they motivated me to up my wrench game.

This is a good one guys! A little while back my friend Bethany from Reality Daydream asked a bunch of bloggers of YouTubers if we wanted to participate in a Wood Wall Art Challenge. Um, heck yes! I've got some creative friends and some of my favorite projects I've ever made came from a collaborative challenge. Like my three leg, One Board End Table and my Wood and Acrylic Bathroom Shelf
