Toolsday Giveaway: Win Exterior Caulk

Last Toolsday we asked you to identify a wooden stool-looking thing and tell us who would use it. We had a large variety of answers, everything from a cow-milking stool, to a cobbler’s bench, to a shoeshine boy’s portable seat.  But, those were all wrong.  It was a potter’s wheel.

We randomly picked one winner out of all last week’s comments and that lucky person is Dinonut from Glendale, AZ who thought the mystery stool had something to do with blacksmithing.     

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away 12 cartridges of DAP exterior caulk.  This premium sealant has outstanding durability and adhesion to keep windows and doors sealed tight so you’ll save money and energy.  DAP is waterproof and paintable.

To win the DAP exterior caulk, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this holey gadget (bottom right) is used for.  You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick twelve (12) winners.

Are you getting ready to walk down the aisle?  We’ve got DIY wedding projects to make your special day more memorable – and save money. Download our DIY invites, save-the-dates and place cards; plus find ideas for creating wedding favors, cake toppers, centerpieces and more.

On Tuesday, May 8, we will select the winner then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until May 8, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Dap caulk.  
Official Rules.
