Who started Crafted Garage? Hi! I’m John, Editor and your typical diy’r with years of professional experience.

I started this website as I have over 10 years experience in using pressure washers, table saws, routers and many other power tools. As someone in the trade I’ve spent hours researching and talking to sales people over the years and I having spent so much time using and fixing these tools, I believe I am an expert on the techincal side. I won’t recommend a tool I haven’t used, or maintained, I want you to feel confident in your purchase and how to keep your tool working for years to come.

So how do I get access to these tools? Well I purchase most of them at Amazon.com, The Home Depot and where possible I’ll use online classified ad’s like Craiglist and eBay. Should those avenues fail me I will purchase or rent tools from other big box outlets and if I am lucky I sometimes manage to get tools directly from manufacturers.
