Inexpensive Stud Finder Kit
-One sturdy knuckle
Directions: Knock on wall until it sounds like you hit a stud. Drill a hole. Repeat until stud located.
We put up shelves at the apartment, and I realized soon that a screwdriver and power drill are not the only things you need to put up shelves. For one, a stud-finder would have saved us about 34 holes in our walls. Also, measuring the distance between the studs would have been the smart thing to do. However, without the stud finder, I was able to make an ungodly amount of stud finder jokes.
After we mounted the shelves, we discovered why people use levels. And why people who don’t have stud finders buy spackle. Provolone cheese works suprisingly well for filling the old holes.
