Kreg K5 Pocket Hole Jig
The Kreg K5 Pocket Hole Jig makes pocket hole joinery quick and repeatable. The built-in clamp and dust collection port are my favorite features for increasing efficiency.
Collins Jigsaw Coping Foot
The Collins Jigsaw Coping Foot makes cutting cope joints quick and easy with just about any jigsaw. For cutting baseboard, crown or cap moldings this is my go-to tool.
Bosch L-Boxx 1
The Bosch L-Boxx system has been a game changer for me, bringing a whole new level of tool storage and mobility efficiency. They all clip and stack together for easy transportation and storage. The L-Boxx 1 is the smallest in the set and works great for items like nailers, accessories, and other lower profile tools.
Bosch L-Boxx 2
The Bosch L-Boxx 2 is a great general purpose size for tools like drills, drivers, oscillating multi tools, jigsaws, larger accessories etc. Each of my L-Boxxes are outfitted with custom foam inserts to keep everything organized. A simple label system makes them easy to identify.
Bosch L-Boxx 4
The Bosch L-Boxx 4 is the largest in the set and works especially well for tall tools like large routers. I keep an L-Boxx 4 dedicated for carrying misc. tools and accessories that are specific to a given job.
Bosch L-Boxx 1A
The Bosch 1A comes with removable divider bins and is perfect for small tools and bits of hardware that need to be kept within easy reach and also stay organized.
Portamate PM-7000 Saw Stand
The Portamate PM-7000 miter saw stand is a sturdy and versatile work station. With handy features like flip down material supports on the front legs and a built-in power bar it makes a perfect companion to my Bosch CM8S miter saw.
Freud 8 1/2" Miter Saw Blade
The Freud 8 1/2" 60 tooth miter saw blade leaves a flawless cut in a variety of materials. It makes a great upgrade to the stock blade on the Bosch CM8S miter saw.
Forrest Dado King Blade Set
The Forrest Dado King 8" dado blade set gives a flawless, chip free cut even on materials like melamine. After trying cheaper sets there is no comparison between the Forrest and the others.
Kreg R3 Pocket Hole Jig
The Kreg R3 pocket hole jig makes a great starter set or a set for keeping with you on the go. It was my first pocket hole jig and now I keep it in my drill L-Boxx for working on site.
Bosch SKC120-202L 12V Kit
The Bosch SKC120-202L 12V starter kit is one of those accessories that represents an excellent value. Giving you two 12V batteries along with a charger and an L-Boxx 1 for not much more cost than just two batteries, it is my go-to kit for adding 12V batteries to my setup.
Bosch BAT420 12V 4.0AH Battery
The Bosch BAT420 12V battery packs in a lot of power with a 4.0 Ah capacity. Awesome run time for any of the 12V tools!
Bosch CORE18V 6.3Ah Battery
The Bosch GBA18V63 18V battery packs some serious power. This is my go-to battery when I need maximum run time and power output with any of my Bosch 18V tools. Watch my full review and test here to see it in action.
