The general rule for woodworking is that you should start with a cheap, common tool first, then expand your selections in the end. For example, if you are building a bench, choose a straight-grained pine. The first time you set the axe down without the nut, it will be rough until you add the nut, which provides a secure grip. A woodworking knife is an excellent first woodworking tool, and any tool that adds to the strength and precision of the work. It is an excellent choice for using with a lathe or plane and for drilling through plywood. A saw is a terrific tool for chiseling or carving. Finally, if your work is too advanced to use a bench saw (an electric box saw, for instance), then choose a pocket saw that will work on any surface, even small boards like pine boards.
When should I buy my woodworking tools?
Generally, the most common questions about tools are “When should I buy my first tool?” and “When should I use my first tool?” However, if your hands are too busy to spend much time on work, don’t get started on building a bench in the first place, and don’t plan to go back and do it until later, those answers probably apply best to the latter case. If you’re using your woodworking tools regularly and your hands are not busy, don’t waste your time thinking about woodworking tools.
If you’d prefer to get started with wooden products you can take your time choosing from a wide variety. Even though selecting a variety of inexpensive, commonly available tools makes sense when you’re just starting out, there’s no better time to purchase some quality workstations.
A few basic considerations on purchasing woodworking appliances include:
Size: Woodworking appliances are generally bigger than traditional building appliances. You want one that will handle many square feet of lumber at a time.
