Projects

We love projects, well who doesn't.  OK let's be honest we love them when they go right, but only when they go as planned.  In this section, you can stay up-to-date on Tools in Action projects.   These are ideas and jobs we are working on or are following other people working on.  Do you have a project you are working on?  If so you can share it in the Power Tool Forum with the Tools in Action Crew.  Do you have a project that is worthy of being on the Tools in Action homepage?  If so contact us with the information. We love sharing projects from the crew members.  After all, this is about the community and helping each other. Share your ideas, your passion and your work with the work.  We would love to show the world what you have created or follow you through the whole project step by step.  Check out some of the projects below.
