Woodworking can be looked as a hobby or as a profession. For those with a passion of turning everyday lumber into something useful or unique, it can be both.
That’s why it pays (literally) to have the right tools for the job.
If you are someone who is just breaking into the woodworking game, regardless if it is as a career or if you are looking for something to do in your free time on the weekends, you’ll want to find tools that you will use more often.
Here is a list of woodworking tools and what they can do for a novice craftsman:
- Hand Saw – Until you are confident you can cut your lumber in a completely straight line with a power tool, the hand saw is a great starter to cut for length and pitch. A hand saw will cut cleaner and a bit slower. Both are good things for a novice.
- Hand Plane – With a hand plane, you can do medium to fine work. Taking rough boards to square, flat, and ready to finish.
- Marking Tools – Combo squares, chalk lines, and a marking gauge are all pivotal tools that can alleviate problems when measuring on your wood projects.
- Chisels – The chisel comes in all types and sizes, and is one of the most versatile tools a craftsman can start with. Once you’ve become comfortable with a chisel, creating anything can be possible.
Remember that these tools can really get you off to a solid start in the world of woodworking and are easy to pick up.
