If you are doing a DIY project, you will need a few universal tools. Having the right tools for the job will ensure your project will be an enjoyable experience. Having the correct tools for your project will ensure you can complete it with efficiency, conciseness, and pride.
[b]The Right Tools for the Job[/b]
Some of the basic items that you should have no matter what project you do will include proper safety gear such as work boots. A good work boot will keep your feet protected. It is ideal to have steel toed work boots but depending on your project, you may not need the extra protection, and just a solid work boot will do.
A good pair of work pants are a great way to protect your lower body, and you should also invest in a good pair of safety glasses. If you are working with power tools, you should have earplugs as well to help protect your hearing from any damage.
A drill and impact driver set will help you to build many different things, and you can use it for big and small projects. It can be used to build a deck or assemble furniture and all without having to expend too much effort.

A Dremel tool will have many different accessories that will make it a breeze to cut, sand, scrape, and grind many different materials. A jigsaw is a very versatile saw to have, and it can cut straight lines as well as curves. It is also ideal for plywood projects as well as a basic woodworking project.
You should also start with a good screwdriver set that includes your basics such as a screwdriver, flathead, and it should include a variety of sizes for a variety of projects. If there is going to be a substantial amount of dust created when building your project you should have a good respirator mask to protect you lings from inhaling possibly harmful particles while out work. Some masks will come with removable filters that can be replaced without having to buy an entirely new mask.
Your toolbox should also include a good pair of pliers and a vice-grip. You should have a good pair of work gloves that provide a good grip and that are breathable and padded. That way your hands will not sweat when you wear them, and they will be protected. A voltage tester will be able to detect "live" wires, and a good one would be able to detect anywhere from 12 to 1000 volts.
A utility knife and extra blades are useful for a variety of tasks, and a mechanics tool set will give you everything you need to complete oil changes, light repairs, and everything in between. A sharpener is a way to go if you will be using knives. You will want to keep them sharp to avoid cutting yourself because of a dull blade.
A utility belt is a really great way to keep tools handy while you work. It will also offer additional protection for you and your clothes. Of course, when you work on a DIY project, you are most likely going to caret a mess so you should also invest in a good shop vac to help keep your workstation nice and clean.
