Woodworking – The Importance Of Choosing The Right Tools

TedsWoodworking Plans and Projects

Woodworking is a hobby that a lot of men seem to enjoy once they reach a certain age. It enables you to fix things around the house and make your own objects that you can either keep for yourself or sell on to other people. In this article I want to talk specifically about the kind of tools that you need if you decide to take up woodworking.
There are essentially two types of tool that you will need. There are the absolute necessities that you will need to complete even the smallest of projects, and then there are additional tools that you may require if you ever decide to take on bigger and more adventurous projects.
Let’s start with the basics first of all. For a start you obviously need some basic hand tools such as a hammer and a saw, and preferably more than one of each. You will also need a chisel, a plane, a screwdriver and a utility knife.
Other basic tools you will need include a tape measure, a framing square, a sliding bevel, some chalk, some pencils, some sandpaper and a spirit level. It is also recommended that you have a jigsaw at your disposal and have a good quality workbench to work with.
All of these tools are sufficient to complete most basic woodworking projects around the home. However you may well find that you require a few additional tools, depending on the complexity of the project.
So you may well require an electric saw, for example, if a basic handsaw isn’t up to the job. You may also require a power drill, an electric sanding machine and a router. However this kind of equipment is usually reserved for the more ambitious woodworker, and are not really necessities.
The point I really want to get across is that you shouldn’t be put off the whole idea of woodworking when you walk into your local hardware store. Yes there will be literally thousands of different tools available for you to buy, but the honest truth is that you don’t actually need most of these when you first start out.
You just need some basic tools, such as the ones that I mentioned above, and obviously some wood. This will enable you to complete a few simple projects, and once you start becoming more confident in your own abilities, you can then start thinking about buying some of the more expensive electrical tools that you may require for the more challenging projects.
