Call for Submissions

So many useful things around my house arrived via the personal recommendations posted by Cool Tools. But the “staff” of Cool Tools is not limited to the staff listed on the About page. That’s where you come in. We’d like your recommendations.

Here are a few things we are currently looking for:

Can you recommend the best snorkel in the world?
An outfit that will make wallpaper to your designs?
The ultimate walker for an elderly person?
The cheapest long-range walkie talkie?
A 5-gallon capacity bird feeder?
A decent vacuum-cooking cookbook for amateurs?
The best digital wildlife trail monitor camera?
A gardening tool that performs at least seven distinct functions?
A site with detailed plans for building an owl house?

Or anything else you can heartily recommend from your own personal experience. If you love something you’d love others to know about as well, write me. (If you are feeling extremely helpful you might want to check the Cool Tools archive to make sure we haven’t already featured it.)

If you’re not already a subscriber receiving our weekly e-mail with five new tool recommendations every week, sign up and submit your recommendation. For a broader perspective of this site’s tool philosophy, I recommend this essay. Tell us what you use to open up possibilities, save money, make stuff, live better.
