Woodworkers Tool You Need To Get Started

TedsWoodworking Plans and Projects

Woodworking is rewarding in so many ways. It’s a cheap way to get great home improvements at only the cost of materials and time, you can impress your friends and family with your skills, you can put your creativity into amazing projects and above all, you can have fun while doing it.
Before getting started, there’s a few basic tools that are needed, and some that can make life a little easier.
First of all, you’ll need some marking and measuring tools like a protractor and a tape measure.
For cutting, a circular saw is great for straight cuts, while you’ll need a jig saw for curves. Those are both power tools and costs a little money, but will save you a lot of time and hassle in the long run. On this note, a good cordless drill will come in very handy for drilling and screwing, and it is worth the money spending a little extra on quality here. Go for well-known brands, as these will often last longer and do a better job than the cheaper models.
For shaping and refining the wood, you’ll need a good block plane, chisels and sand paper for polishing. A router is another great power tool for precision work on your projects. You can get all sorts of accessories, but as handy as they may seem, consider what you actually need for your current project before ending up spending more time shopping than actually doing your woodwork.
Finally, you’ll need various styles and sizes of clamps to hold your work in place while you work on it or glue it together. Four medium sized clamps is a good start.
Woodworking is messy, and should as far as possible be kept in a separate room with plenty of space for the purpose. This being the garage, a shed or a room in the basement, as long as there’s good ventilation and plenty of space. Smaller projects can probably be made on the kitchen table or anywhere in the house, but beware that while you might end with a beautiful wood project, you’ll likely end up with an ugly kitchen table as well. Therefor, a good workbench is also almost essential to the serious woodworker. They can be found in all shapes and sizes, but I can recommend getting a good large one with a wooden vice that doesn’t leave marks on your work. Alternatively, making your own workbench can be a great project to get you started at woodworking, and while saving money you can make it specifically to your ideas and needs.
Finally, some simple precautions should be taken before getting started: Safety goggles should be used whenever using heavy tools like circular saws and routers, where chips can fly around. Use ear protection for loud noises like from power tools or hammering on metal (and don’t underestimate, loud noise can seriously harm your hearing, even after short exposure). And lastly, use a dust mask when working with sanders and other machinery that leaves a lot of dust in the air, even if the tool has it’s own dust collector (rule of thumb: if dust gets on the floor, it’ll get in your lungs too without protection). Therefor, also make sure you work in a well ventilated area. Leave a window or the garage door open, and clean up regularly
