How Does Legend Handyman Work?
Literally, they are trying to provide a comprehensive, sustainable solution to your problems, It’s like how to do something DIY and step by step further.
We have a big team with a bunch of good people, experts in DIY work, power tools, flooring, roofing, welding, woodworking in general. Some of us used to work as salesman in power tools retail shops. They talked with the people about every product’s pros and cons, and they had the opportunity to listen to after-sales feedback.
They did it. They are good, really good, extremely good at what they do.
However, we pick problems from our expertise area and write solutions to help you people.
A big team with a lot of freelance writers, freelancers, designers, digital marketers, and stuff.
But who are the masterminds – Here I am talking about them.
Hi, I am a Passionate woodworker, builds fancy items, and sells them. But I turned into a shop vac installation expert, as I was very serious about shop dust management from the beginning. I helped a lot of people from the woodworking community to plan and execute proper shop vacuum installation from a business scale to personal level shops. And I love writing them too. My posts

If you forget about TomboyTools here we go –
Tomboy Tools, Inc., an Entrepreneur Magazine Top 100 Brilliant Company, is the only provider of hands-on education and high-quality tools for women. Tomboy Tools is an educational organization and direct seller of ergonomically designed hand and power tools. Our mission is to build confidence and empower women through hands-on education, quality tools, and an independent business opportunity. We foster an internal culture that supports women and teaches them to feel confident using tools and to share that knowledge with others.
Tool party guests learn simple tool applications, cost-effective techniques, share project ideas and money-saving tips, and gain the confidence to tackle basic projects on their own in a fun, social, and engaging environment.
Tomboy Tools, Inc. was founded by three women, probably a lot like you, or women you know. They were homeowners with projects to get done, and for any number of reasons, they had to figure them out for themselves.
It’s embarrassing to always have to ask someone else, usually a guy in our lives, to fix things for us. Usually, the asking involved waiting – waiting until it was convenient for them; waiting on a repair person who may or may not fix it for a reasonable price; sometimes waiting with the hope that the problem would go away.
You can do it…
When each of us at Tomboy Tools quit waiting and began to gain the skills and confidence to tackle projects ourselves, we discovered something interesting. It EMPOWERED us! As we gained self-reliance, we gained confidence with tools.
These three women DIYers were friends who shared tools and home improvement ideas to tackle projects around their homes. After attending a kitchen home party together in 2000, they discovered how beneficial it would be to have tools designed specifically for women that would help them with their projects, while offering a business opportunity where they could educate other women about proper tool applications and features, share project ideas, and cost-saving tips.
What we never envisioned was that women from all over the world would visit our website and tell us their stories and become our guides. We have been so touched by the stories we have heard from women who told us about trying to maintain homes on their own, afraid of what they didn’t know, and the difficulties they faced.
Tomboy Tools strives to provide educational resources and opportunities for women (and girls) that will help inspire them and build their confidence in using tools. Most of Tomboy Tools’ product line of high-quality pink tools was designed in response to the growing demand of women wanting their own quality tools in pink, as well as our vision to give back to causes we are passionate about through our Pink for a Purpose initiative. Tomboy Tools works with ergonomic specialists, designers and manufacturers to provide tools that are effective, lightweight, durable, high-quality and comfortable for women.
Though our company has changed and grown throughout the years, our mission has remained the same. We remain passionate and committed to educating and empowering women in every area of their lives. From offering them the opportunities to build their confidence level and become financially independent, to supporting causes that directly affect them; we are, and always have been, dedicated to inspire, share, create and empower!
– to inspire you to tackle that project you’ve
always dreamed of

and learn from others
