Woodworking Tools and Equipment

Deciding to enter into the world of woodworking is not that hard of a decision to make. It's the decisions required as to what equipment to buy that may be a bit more challenging. Not only do you have to decide on what tools to buy but also how much you want to budget for them as well as their quality.

Some tool shoppers feel they just have to buy the highest quality tool on the market while feel they really want to keep it low budget. If you are a weekend woodworker than the low budget, tools should work just fine for you. If you are a seasoned woodworker starting to set up your own shop and know you are, going to be at it consistently then you may want the higher priced tools which means better quality.

Number one on your list should be a drill and a corded one is less expensive. Be sure it has a screwdriver attachment. Next, you want to get a circular saw for your trimming and basic cuts... Then you will need a sander. Preferably a finishing sander. It's perfect for rounding off some of your pieces and it gives a nice finish to your projects. It only uses a ¼ of a piece of sandpaper, which is quite economical

A jigsaw is another valuable tool. It's used for your rough outline work and for cutting curves. It's not a tool that you will want to be without. Then a table saw should be on your "must buy" list as well. When you go to buy this one spend a bit more money and get a good quality one. You will be using this tool on a regular basis. You need one that is going to have a powerful motor. The lesser quality ones with the smaller motors tend to stall out.

The same principal should apply for your router so make sure you buy a good one. You want to be sure you are going to get precision work. The router has multiple uses like cutting the profiles into the wood and is also used to cut molding and special cuts as well. You will need to determine if you want to buy a plunged or fixed version. The plunged are a bit more expensive. You have to set how deep your cut is going to be before turning on the router if you are using a fixed router.

Then you eventually are going to need a band saw and a compound miter saw. You will need a lathe but it's the quality of your turning tools that will be important here. If you like to finish your projects quickly then purchase a biscuit joiner.

Finally, you are going to want a belt sander as well as a drill press.

Once you have purchased all of the wonderful tools there aren't going to be too many projects that you can't handle. You will now have a very well equipped workroom to give you many hours of enjoyment and quality workmanship.
