    • Love it!
      By Amy B, on November 1, 2014

    • This is great! If I had all of the tools, I would definitely make it!
      By jbuchmann55, on November 12, 2014

    • This looks interesting but a complete set of instructions and materials list would be nice.

    • Years ago I got my first set. I still have most of the trusty "Ole Blue" tools from the kit. I now have quite a few pieces of the newer green series tools and my girlfriend is always good to me with a new Ryobi anything for me for gifts for special occasions. I'll be honest and say that I hated the older nicad batteries and was almost ready to switch and go with another brand but Ryobi must've read my mind and the Lithium Ion batteries came out making my collection great again. Thanx Ryobi

    • I'm a new member of Ryobi nation. I love the way you can put your tools away and they're all bulky and I can hide them from my son.
      By rubymy07, on February 6, 2016

    • Ryobi rocks because they have an extensive line of power tools that are all high quality and more than fairly priced. My entire theater's scenic shop uses exclusively rypbi power tools to produce our sets and there is no other brand i would rather be using! Thank you for making amazing products!
      By mcconaghy, on February 6, 2016

    • I love every Ryobi tool I've bought, it's my only choice now when buying. It's my favorite color!! I am a new member and excited to be here!
      By JeriVann, on February 6, 2016

    • I am a new member. During the last year I purchased my first Ryobi tools that are part of the One+ group. I am so pleased that I have become obsessed with owning tools from this line. Ryobi Rocks from heavy construction to household hobbies.
      By nrmorris, on February 7, 2016

    • My husband fell in love with Ryobi and now they're the only power tool we buy. Lightweight, easy to use, no cords, longest lasting rechargeable batteries...can't beat the quality!
      By mrandmrsmlk_111207, on February 7, 2016

    • Ryobi Nation Rocks because your tools are sturdy, durable and a good value. Not to mention my favorite color!! I'm a novice but have been comoletely thrilled with all of my Ryobi tools. The brad nailer was LIFECHANGING for me. Thank you for all of your amazing tools!!
      By WendyBond, on February 7, 2016

    • Love my Ryobi tools!!! Have 2 cordless drills and a hedge trimmer. LOVE THEM ALL!!!
      By Pappy117, on February 7, 2016

    • I love all my tools ryobi, drills, table saw, brad nailer, 12" miter saw, biscuit joiner, router, and more and more, I'm a part time handy man and a part time woodworker, I have always been able to depend on ryobi to help me out in a tough situation! When I was first deciding what drills to buy at the store I had my heart set on another brand at first and after talking to an employee and telling him what I wanted and needed he pointed out all the things I needed in the ryobi and I've never been let down since, ryobi all day baby!
      By DaveRP, on February 7, 2016

    • I am new to the RYOBI Nation but I think everything that I have now rocks. The tools are easy for me to use on all my DIY projects. I just bought my husband the radio for Christmas for his work truck and he loves it. RYOBI Nation you ROCK!!!

    • New member here,but not new to ryobi tools...whether using my ryobi tools at work or at home,they are dependable,reliable,easy to use...provide the strength,power and versatility that I need whether working on garage doors or porches or remodeling my house...
      By comountainman, on February 8, 2016

    • Ryobi Nation rocks because I am able to buy a great product, that is affordable for a rookie carpenter like myself. I'm a new member to Ryobi Nation member, but have used Ryobi tools for a long time. The Brad nailer is a work of art.
      By Mkyfetalsana, on February 8, 2016

    • I bought my first blue set over ten years ago, while doing a kitchen remodel in our house. I just upgraded to the Ryobi one set, I love the light weight construction. Ryobi is all I own from my chop saw and table saw to my drills.. Thanks Ryobi for making such a fantastic product.
      By Clintg84118, on February 8, 2016

    • Got my first set almost 10 years ago while doing a home remodel job. Now almost 80% of my shop is Ryobi. Great tools, great warranties, great prices. Love them all. Thanks for a awesome product.
      By crookedcreek, on February 8, 2016

    • Consistency! Ryobi has been consistently coming out with great products at affordable prices for years. It's the brand I recommend over and over again. You can't beat the great customer service!
      By BoxwoodandBasil, on February 8, 2016

    • As the Hardware Department Supervisor at the local Home Depot I'm talking Ryobi Products daily to our customers. My new favorite is the Blue Tooth Radio it makes the backyard projects and get together's MUCH more enjoyable. #ROCKOn!
      By 25dh6846, on April 27, 2016

    • Am excited about ryobi nation am a new member and big fan of ryobi tools as i use them daily, toady my cordless router saved the day at work going around the building am working on and cutting several openings on different floors.
      By azhomes911, on May 6, 2016

    • I think Ryobi Nation Rocks because it gives us "normals" the chance to post and share projects with others and with the nation. The contests are fun and right up my alley with my competitive nature. I love being able to share the Ryobi love.
      By franzie99, on June 22, 2016

    • New memeber here...15 tools and counting!!!
      By jtrunzo1977, on July 6, 2016

    • Welcome, jtrunzo1977! Can't wait to see what you come up with using those 15 tools!
      By RYOBI Nation, on July 6, 2016

    • Why does Ryobi Nation rock? Simple; Ryobi makes tools and equipment for the average user, that are engineered way beyond the needs of that same user, and available for significantly less than pro tools. Ryobi Nation takes this one step further, and creates an avenue where the non-professionals can share ideas, designs and tips with like-minded DIYers. Ryobi Nation rocks because people help people create something from a scrap pile of nothing!!
      By TC Builds, on August 16, 2016

    • Thanks for the kind words, TC Builds! Nation is all about users like you, who inspire each other to get out there and build something! We're proud to be part of the amazing projects that our members send in everyday!
      By RYOBI Nation, on August 16, 2016

    • I'm a die hard Ryobi fan!!! BEST TOOLS EVER!!! I have some old Ryobi blue tools and you just can't beat them. I love their blue colored tools. Such a great company! Their customer service is great too. RYOBI ROCKS!
      By Old Codger, on October 1, 2016

    • I just became a new member of Ryobi Nation! Pumped to be a part of this awesome community! We couldn't do any of the work we do without our tools! We have really put them to the test and they still work as great as they did two years ago!! It's awesome to be pushed and encouraged to try new projects!
      By Beautiful Fight Woodworking, on February 22, 2017

    • Welcome to the family, bkdyer417! Looking forward to seeing what great things you'll bring to the table!
      By RYOBI Nation, on February 22, 2017

    • Ryobi rocks because they have a wide selection of battery tools which I love, because you don't need to be running around for extension cords and you switching plugs when you need a certain tool, all you need to do is to plop a battery in your tool and do the job. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK RYOBI.
      By AJR200117, on March 1, 2017

    • Thanks for the props, AJR!!
      By RYOBI Nation, on March 2, 2017

    • Ryobi Rocks because no other tool company offers a forum like this. You offer us an opportunity to show off our creativity and socialize with likeminded craftsmen and women. To top it all off you offer us a chance to win even more great tools.
      By curtis3299, on March 20, 2017

    • Thanks for the kind words, curtis3299! Glad to have you on RYOBI Nation!!
      By RYOBI Nation, on March 21, 2017

    • Ryobi Nation rocks because it's a site full of inspiration from other DIYers of similar skill levels, giving you that extra boost of confidence you can do it! It's also amazing to have so many helpful links and info on how to use your tools to get the job done.
      By Tjbaum, on March 25, 2017

    • So glad you're a part of RYOBI Nation, Tjbaum! Thanks for the props!
      By RYOBI Nation, on March 28, 2017

    • Ryobi nation ROCKS because they give away free SWAG! Haha Seriously though. I joined a long time ago but have only now started taking advantage of the group. What an awesome site! All these projects by DIYers and weekend warriors like me as well as from people who do these projects for a living could provide inspiration for future DIY stuff for a lifetime. You get encouragement on your projects, friendly competition in the contests, drool worthy craft ideas, special offers on tools... Ryobi Nation is great! I need to tell some other Ryobi users about this.
      By Danish Design, on March 29, 2017

    • RYOBI Nation rocks because the TOOLS are AFFORDABLE, the TOOLS are QUALITY, the BATTERIES charge SUPER-FAST, the TOOLS are DIVERSE, the CONTESTS are GREAT...but perhaps MY FAVORITE thing about the RYOBI ONE+ system is that PSYCHEDELIC GREEN!!!!!
      By ralitaco, on April 12, 2017

    • Right on, ralitaco! Thanks for the support. Glad you're in the Nation!!
      By RYOBI Nation, on April 12, 2017

    • I have just purchased another RYOBI package of tools. I have been very impressed with the easy to use most tools in Landscaping and house repair. Use a Tool and the batteries from each tool interconnects with ease. I highly recommend users to purchase an item of RYOBI and obtain a set of batteries for all projects. I also obtained a RYOBI DAYS "ALL THE POWER WITHOUT THE CORD" at HomeDepot and can follow which items are available and pricing. Now as I buy them I can cross it off my "Want List" Sale is until 6/21/2017 at HomeDepot.com
      By Toolman101, on May 30, 2017

    • I'm a new Ryobi Nation member. I love how all my tools use the same batteries. I know that I will always have power to run my tools.
      By The Hedgi, on July 11, 2017
      • Stoked to have you in RYOBI Nation! Looking forward to seeing future projects!
        By RYOBI Nation, on July 13, 2017

    • i bought my 1st RYOBI 6 pack tool set with 2 batteries almost and nothing has killed them yet , they still seem like they are brand new. so last fall i went out and bought the weed wacker because i wanted a battery one that would not die after 1 summer like all the other 1 i have bought in the past { and yes they were not Ryobi } so RYOBI i tell everyone i now and also strangers that i run into at DYI STORES to only buy RYOBI ... You guys are the best and have a coustmer for life . thank you and keep up the good work
      By blair2829, on July 22, 2017
      • Thanks a ton, Blair! We'll keep the great products coming!
        By RYOBI Nation, on July 24, 2017

    • 1 battery does 'em all!

      By boulder, on January 15, 2018

    • i am a professional mechanic, i use several ryobi tools in lieu of physically turning a wrench, recently during an "out of position" exhaust repair i dropped my 1/2" drive impact wrench roughly seven feet to a water covered concrete floor. My heart sank, i felt sure i was going to need a new impact driver ( i was not immediately able to pick it up without concussing myself with a muffler and tailpipe). Lo and behold my ryobi survived the gross abuse to fight another day, no replacement battery, no new impact wrench. Ryobi forever<3
      By DrFrankenspeed, on February 8, 2018
      • That's awesome to hear! Glad you were able to get back to workin'!
        By RYOBI NATION, on February 8, 2018

    • I’m not new to tools and woodworking but I am new to Ryobi.  Eons ago when I was a kid, I’d hang around my dad’s workshop and do anything he’d let me do. When I married a man who wasn’t interested in working with any tool other than a hammer or screwdriver, I decided I’d have to make myself a workshop.  I used my tools once in awhile but most of my time was used raising 6 kids. Now my kids are grown and gone. My husband has passed. I’ve got time on my hands. I purchased a couple of Ryobi tools last week and I’m happier than a pig in mud. Can’t wait to start the projects. Even got myself a shirt that says, “Old Women Love Tools Too!”  

      First time on here!
      By Momsmotleycrew, on June 26, 2018

    •   I am a 43 year old fully disabled man in a wheelchair from leg amputation. I love my ryobi tools because they are helping me to remodel my home to make it possible for me to live comfortably. I own 2 drills, battery circular saw, impact driver, and several other tools, and I'm always looking to expand my collection when I can.  Thanks Ryobi for an awesome Product

    • where are the plans so I can print?

      By stuntmom54, on February 9, 2021

    • Wish I could upload a picture with the physical cut list overlay on the (5) 2"x4"x8' boards from using CutList Optimizer (https://www.cutlistoptimizer.com/). It helped me figure out the best board allocation (minimize waste and another trip to the big box store at $6.52 per 2x4x8' as of March 6, 2021).

      To keep the ends clean, I took 1/4" off each end first. Wish I could upload a photo with the physical cut list it produced for an easy layout but here are the numbers from the CutList Optimizer:

      A: 20 3/4" --- B: 44 3/4" --- C: 33 1/2" --- D: 17 3/4"

      1: A, A, C, D
      2: A, A, C, D
      3: B, B
      4: B, B
      5: C, C

      I ended up buying another 2x4 sheet of MDF for the bottom shelf and added four locking casters (rated at 200 pounds ~$5.50/ea) from Harbor Freight for mobility (adds 3 3/8" to height). Heading out to the garage now . . .

    • This isn't a how-to... it just shows a picture. What tip on the tool did you use to engrave the glass, or is it plastic?  you don't give dimensions of coaster, material used. It is just a finished picture.  Not enough information to be useful

      By Rickneff68, on December 28, 2019

    • I just finished building this. My only suggestion is to either trim the turf so there is no overhang or so that it covers the 2x4s underneath as well otherwise the side 1x6s are cambered.
