  3. Jeffrey Cunningtown on June 7, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    I did it about three weeks ago. I learned a lot about it on the Woodglut website. Check.

    Tool box is like Santa’s toy bag

  6. june corriette on June 7, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    can you recommend some electrical and cordless tools needed to have with the basic tool box or just basic tools which are electrical based that a carpenter should have in their possession

  7. Robert Casey on June 7, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    He said "huge nuts" sorry couldn’t resist.🤣🤣

  8. Jun Li on June 7, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Thanks dude!

  9. Hip-Hop Jewels on June 7, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    Great job, and nice humor too. I enjoyed this.

  10. cucumberpepsi on June 7, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    OK..Ok.. how the F do you fit all that into a 24 inch tool bag? I kow its a lot of smaller tools and stuff but wtf? wither you are not busy enough throughout your day jumping from job to job or you are just ver y careful not to spill tool about when loading and unloading tools daily. I’m guessing no rush and not working for a contractor. but you have a great tool list of things to carry! Am I weird ? yes probably.

  11. Carl McCoy on June 7, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    No 5 in 1 tool?

  12. Learn.Explore.Create on June 7, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Wow didn’t know you had another channel apart from your skateboarding one!

  13. C Hiebert on June 7, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    My guess is that it weighs 56 pounds.

  14. Trent T on June 7, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    truck/van tour video?

  15. lZEOBA on June 7, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Brother!, it is unbelievable how nearly identical our primary tool boxes are!! Seriously!

  16. ZchryPlys on June 7, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    I use that same hammer and I love it. I only buy that hammer. Everyone I work with uses the same one too lol.

    Since WW2 testosterone levels in men have dropped by over 50% on average.
    You should get your levels checked.

    When we’re not looking, lmao, tradesmen 😂🤣

  19. David Galvan on June 7, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    Hahahaha I’ve been laughing for a good time with this video :’)

  20. Laura Aqui on June 7, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    Good video very interesting, always good to hear how a professional prepares for working and what tools they prefere to use, good advice here your really sharing your experience, also you included some fun humour about the Youtuber comments which made me laugh, your videos are very watchable, keep up the good work on your channel, and I will check out your other videos, to learn more, I gave this a thumbs up and subscribed, from novice DIY-er Laura in uk

  21. David on June 7, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    5:44 THANKS FOR THAT TIP!!!! I’m renovating and have about about 10 million brad nails to remove from baseboards, trim, lumber, wainscotting, etc. I’ve been using pliers and just hauling the damn things out, and this will be a hell of a lot easier!! Love your vids, and have subscribed.

  22. Harvey Smith on June 7, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Nice to see another man’s general tool box.
    Like you I have one general that goes to every job and a few bags which are specific to trade tools.
    A general bag ( or old wooden box in my case) is very personnel to each man, it has been refined over many years of working and learning.
    A few comments below which are valid that you should carry this or that, well, that may suit one guy but not another, or you may have that tool in another bag.
    I literally cannot function without my general box.
    Thanks for sharing, very interesting to see what other guys carry

    I have the same hammer Estwing 20 oz with straight claw, I have used it for about 25 years, worked all over Europe and Scandinavia with it. I always get comments from colleagues that they don’t like my hammer, they always say it is too light, so ask what weight is theirs, and it is always the same 20 oz as mine, difference is they are using those hammers with a pipe like handle that is so out of balance and top heavy it feels heavier. I am glad to have worked all my life with Estwing hammers and sure it has saved my wrist and elbow from repetative shock.

  24. John Murray on June 7, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    A carpenter without a t-bevel? Also a pair of end cutting pliers to use as nail pullers is a most. A few other things that I like to keep in my bag are a small pair of needle nose vice grips for removing stripped screws, a small memo pad for obvious reasons, a variety of pencils, pens and markers, a chalkline, plumb bob, mini hacksaw, line level, safety glasses and ear plugs

    Love this video

  27. Dan Scalia on June 7, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    I’m sure that guy who left his stiletto “never came back for it” or maybe he did and you were Calgary, aye?

  28. Dan Pisko on June 7, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    OMG. Too funny! I teach kids construction techniques. They’re going to love this one. Thanks!

  29. Ric Liang on June 7, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    That Stiletto pry bar saved you 10 grams out of your 50lb tool kit. LOL

  30. ironslave01 on June 7, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    A guy at work broke his stilleto nail bar last week, waste of monney but they look cool lol

  31. DrDzaster on June 7, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    You look like Wish brand Grant Gustin

  32. BoldWittyName on June 7, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    Him calling us "tool nerds". LOL.

  33. Corey Mcniel on June 7, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    I purchased some excellent plans from the Woodglut website.

  34. Roch Lapointe on June 7, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    I swear you just came into my truck and got MY tool kit. The only difference is your calking/silicone tubes and I carry a contour thingie for drawing contour of baseboards or odd shapes. Thanks for sharing your knowledge, you seem to be doing a lot of the same type of work I used to (insurance jobs)

  35. Eric Smothermon on June 7, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    the first one you couldn’t think of is called a thingamabob and the other one is called a doohickey

  36. Diane Strassberg on June 7, 2022 at 9:15 pm

  37. Chorgz Ent. on June 7, 2022 at 9:16 pm

  39. Manny singh 🇨🇦 on June 7, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    Ben oh Ben I am getting your biggest fan and I am from Abbotsford bc —manny

  40. Weekend Handyman on June 7, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    The pink oatey teflon tape is awesome … costs $5 or $6 a role, but worth every cent.

  41. Dewalt Man on June 7, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    I don’t know what these tools are called. Can’t help you.

  42. DYC on June 7, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    Love it. Very similar to my main tool bag

  43. Charlie Bendock on June 7, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    My only first aid item was tweezers to get those nasty wood slivers out of my hands

  44. N V on June 7, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    🖕 that Estwing is awesome. Old American 🇺🇸 made!

  45. Michael Reilly on June 7, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    By chance would you have a link to a decent carpenters belt? I have purchase several from big box and am never happy with them. Either the pockets are closed up so tight you cant get a hand in to grab nails or screws or there is no quick place to clip a tape measure or not the right quantity of small slots for screwdrivers or knife or pencil or whatever. I just can’t seem to find a good one.

  46. Liz Greene on June 7, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    this is relaxing and funny

  47. Tristan Martinez on June 7, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    Why do you have a bunch of other peoples tools in your bag? 🤨 I’m pretty sure at least on of those is mine 🤣

  48. Mark Porpora on June 7, 2022 at 9:29 pm


  49. Korben Dallas on June 7, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    I though it was the Flash talking about tools.
    Great video.

  50. Vadym Volodko on June 7, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    I did it with the Woodglut plans.
