I use my 18 volt Makita Drills every day I work in the workshop.  They pack a lot of power and are lightweight.  I keep a drill bit in one and a Phillips screw bit in the other.  
I went through a lot of different sanders before deciding on this one.  Because I work with rough pallet wood, I am hard on sanders.  Other than having to replace the sanding pad from time to time, the MILWAUKEE SANDER has held up tot he abuse I give it. 

The other tool that puts in a lot of hard work in my shop is the 12" Sliding Compound DEWALT MITER SAW.

I use stain over a lot of my projects and my stain of choice is MINWAX.
