I am in the process of building my backyard deck, so I wanted to share with you guys the tools that are helping me knock this thing out!

I love small tools with a lot of power. When installing my joist hangers this little tool definitely made the deck building process easier. It does require an air compressor, I use Ryobi's Pancake Air Compressor.
It has a magnetic guide for precise fastener placement and is compact and low in weight. It is compatible with common nails 1-1/2 in to 3-1/2in. See the video below to see how I put this tool to work on my floating deck.
The Ridgid Palm Nailer retails for $59.98 at The Home Depot. Check out the video below to see it in action.
With any big project, you always need a great hammer to aid you along the way and this Milwaukee Milled Face Framing Hammer doesn't disappoint. I especially love the magnetic nail set that allows you to set nails one handed. This Milwaukee hammer retails at The Home Depot for $34.99 . check out the video below to see it in action.
Anything cordless is ok in my book but this Dewalt saw really impressed me. I have had a few test runs with her and so far she cuts like a breeze. It has a bevel capacity up to 57 degrees and works great with cross cutting 2x’s, and is great on runtime. I can't wait to test her out on my deck boards. Stay tuned for some videos with this saw in action, in my floating deck tutorial posts. This saw retails for $159.00 at The Home Depot.
My Ryobi hammer drill has done great with my deck project. Check out my full tool review here on what I think about it.
This isn't necessarily a tool, but between working with this Oklahoma clay and all the rain we’ve been getting, my deck project has been really messy to start off, so I was happy to have these Husky water resistant gloves.
They have tough leather material ideal for heavy duty jobs and very suitable for wet conditions. If you are in need of some good outdoor working gloves, look no further. They retail for $14.98 at your local Home Depot.
I have been using this saw for a while now and I must say its heavy duty. I would highly recommend Dewalt brand to anyone. It is a little pricey, but all of my dewalt tools always outlast other brands that I buy. It features Dual horizontal steel rails with a innovative clamping mechanism and miters 60 degrees to the right and 50 degrees to the left, providing increased capacity. It retails for $399.00 at The Home Depot. DEWALT's 35ft Tape measure is also a great buy!
