MT. PROSPECT, Ill. – JUNE 14, 2011 — The Dremel® brand has partnered with expert craftsman Chip Wade, of HGTV’s “Curb Appeal: The Block” and “Designed to Sell,” to conquer one feat this year: ‘Tackling America’s To-Do List.’ Launching this month on the Dremel Facebook page, Wade will lead viewers through step-by-step instructions and tool recommendations for tackling what a national survey revealed are among the top projects on homeowners’ to-do lists.

“So many people have a to-do list of home improvement projects they would like to complete, but without the right directions and materials, people can become discouraged and let these tasks fall by the wayside,” said Wade. “I’m happy to be partnering with Dremel to provide Americans with the tool solutions, project ideas and expert advice they need to successfully cross projects off their lists for an accomplished 2011.”

A new video will be released monthly on revealing expert advice to help Americans tackle their DIY projects using Dremel tools, including: installing base molding in a living room or bedroom, routing a groove in molding to hide cables and other wires, replacing broken bathroom floor tiles, smoothing out a weathered deck for re-staining or painting and adding a backsplash to a kitchen wall.

Survey Results

The Dremel brand surveyed 500 homeowners to uncover America’s top projects as well as discover what motivating factors lay behind them. The key insights and statistics are listed below:

Tackling America’s To-Do List

While the ‘Tackling America’s To-Do List’ video series and program featuring Chip Wade lives primarily on the Dremel Facebook page, videos will also be available on the Dremel brand’s YouTube channel. Project steps highlighted in the videos will be available for download on as an easy reference for consumers seeking to start their own home improvement projects.  As part of his partnership with Dremel, Wade will lend his expertise and advice to DIYers as he answers questions on the Dremel Facebook page and on Twitter, where he will host chats for consumers.
