bestof Best of MAKE: Toolsday 2011

“Toolbox” has been a staple of MAKE magazine since Volume 01, back in February, ’05. We’ve done plenty of online tool reviews, too, since then, but somewhat informally, and it’s only this year that we decided to launch a regularly-scheduled, official online weekly tool review column.

When we were gearing up, back in April, there was a vacant slot in our Tuesday programming, and “tool review Tuesday” quickly contracted to “Toolsday,” around the office. For better or worse, that name has stuck, and has since leaked out from behind the curtain. Therefore we embrace it: Long live Toolsday!

Here, then, are the most popular Toolsday reviews since the series began. They’ve been normalized for post lifetime, to give newer content a chance, and given a tweak or two, here and there, to account for brand-new content that hasn’t quite tailed off, yet. Enjoy the retrospective, and look forward to bigger and better things from Toolsday in the new year!
