• Basic screwdriver set that contains both flat blades as well as Phillips
• Cross-cut hand saw
• Cordless or corded power drill with a variety of bits
• Level
• C-Clamps to hold things you're trying to secure
• Retractable tape measure
• Adjustable wrench
• Slip-joint pliers
• Sandpaper in a variety of grit levels
• Lubricant
• Glues (wood glue, epoxy, and all-purpose)
• Duct tape
• Small flashlight
