Why did we create this?

Chippy Tools started as an idea almost 10 years before it was created and released. Brother Nick & Sam were on a long drive discussing Sam’s desire to develop an app. Nick, a carpenter, suggested to Sam that there was a significant opportunity in for an app to help carpenters and professionals make everyday calculations on job sites.

Several years and a few false starts later Chippy Tools was born. Chippy Tools mission is to rethink what a best in class application for carpenters and anyone looking to make common construction calculations looks like. Our goal is to develop Chippy Tools on a sustainable business model so that we can continue to add new calculations and improvements, all the time seeking to save our customers time and money.

Where did the name Chippy Tools come from?

In Australia and several other countries around the world, carpenters are often referred to as a Chippy. We wanted to stay true to our base in Australia and the view that the app is simply a collection of tools for a Chippy.
