How do I know which hand tools to use for each job?

How do you use a wrecking bar?
A wrecking bar is a versatile and powerful tool that can be used to tear down walls, pry up flooring, and remove boards and nails. It features one end with a large flat head and the other with a curved claw. Wrecking bars are essential for demolition projects, but they can also be used in home repair jobs or construction tasks.
Using a wrecking bar is relatively simple, although extra caution should be taken when using this powerful tool. Start by positioning the curved claw at the end of the material you want to remove, such as wallboard panels. Hammer lightly on the flat end of the wrecking bar to secure it further into place if needed. Apply steady pressure while pulling back on the handle of the bar until you have thoroughly pulled away whatever you are trying to remove.
What is a crowbar for?
A crowbar is a versatile tool that has many uses in construction, demolition and home repairs - they can be used for prying, levering, bending and breaking objects apart. The curved end of a crowbar is used for leverage when trying to open something or remove nails while the chisel point helps break objects such as bricks or stones into smaller pieces. Crowbars are essential for any handyman's toolbox as they provide an effective way to move heavy objects or loosen stuck fasteners without damaging them.
What is a felling axe?
A felling axe is an essential tool for anyone who needs to take down trees in a safe, effective manner. It is the most commonly used type of axe for chopping and cutting and is designed specifically for felling trees. This type of axe has a long handle with a single, curved blade at one end that allows it to cut deeply into wood. The other end has a wedge-shaped blade that helps the user control how deep the cut is made.
