Most experienced woodworkers are familiar with the many different tools available to them, and which ones are essential to finishing their projects. As a beginner, the different tool options available may seem a little confusing as well as costly. It’s a good idea to begin with the absolute essentials. This includes a woodworking bench, a high quality portable saw, a vice, saw horses for your larger projects, clamps, a drill and a hammer. You’ll also want to have some storage space to keep your tools as well as small parts, such as nails and other fasteners.

In addition to these woodworking tools, you’ll also want a few tools for clean up, such as a vacuum or a broom. Not only are these important to keeping your workspace clean, they’ll keep it safe by preventing fires.

If you’re just starting out, then be sure to invest in these woodworking tools. For more workshop-related tips and ideas, contact us at Schutte Lumber today.
