Essential Woodworking Tools

It can be difficult to determine which tools to purchase when starting out in woodworking. When you are starting out with woodworking the vast majority of projects only require a key set of essential tools. Listed below are the woodworking tools that can used to make most woodworking projects (in no particular order):

• Tenon Saw: Of all the general purpose saws, the tenon saw is the best as it give you the greatest control and can be used for finer projects.

• Firmer Chisel Set: The basic design and strength of the firmer chisel means it can be used for a range of jobs and it is recommended that a set of these be purchased.

• Files: Files are easy to use in order to finish off work and a can be purchased in a variety of blades ranging from very coarse to very fine.

• Steel Rule: The steel rule is not easily damaged and therefore allows the woodworker to mark precisely every time.

• Combination Square: The combination square features a 45 degree angle, 90 degree angle, spirit level and metal ruler, making it the ideal purchase when starting out.

• Smoothing Plane: There are a number of planes that can be purchased, however, if only one can be bought then I recommend the smoothing plane as it has a blade that can be adjusted for finer work.

• Power Drill: Despite the fact that there is a large range of power drills available in a various shapes, sizes and features, only a basic model is required.

• G-clamp: The G-clamp has a very basic design with a casting that has a screw at one end that applies pressure and is available in a variety of sizes.

• Claw Hammer: The claw hammer is a extremely popular due to its ability to both hammer in nails and remove them.

• Beech Mallet: The beech mallet is used to both hammer chisels and to tap in wood when building projects.
