Chip Wade in America's To Do List Video - Gutter Guard Project

Chip Wade in America’s To Do List Video – Gutter Guard Project

I’m so excited to share a sneak-peek of Dremel®‘s America’s To-Do List web show with you this never-before-seen video of Chip Wade, expert craftsman, as he demonstrates how to do some easy home maintenance. If you’re a DIY and home repair TV addict like me, you’ll recognize Chip from HGTV’s Curb Appeal: The Block and Designed to Sell.  He has also appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

What I like about Chip is that he explains things in a way that makes me feel like I can do it and do it well.  He’s got an easy-going demeanor that’s so watchable and it doesn’t hurt that he’s a handsome fellow, too!

Here’s a Sneak Peak of September’s Video Featuring Chip Wade on American’s To-Do List which features the Dremel® 3000 Variable Speed Rotary Tool, a new rotary tool in their line of quality tools that will be released in September.  In this quick look, Chip shows how easy it is to put together a custom fit gutter guard.

Not the project for you? Don’t worry; a new video will be released monthly on
