Wicked Woodworking Plans!

Jan 15, 2008
Most beginners wonder what the best woodworking tools are. There are so many different brands on the market, a novice can find themselves flat broke if they are not careful. The pros have an interesting answer to this question. Depending on who you ask the list will be different. Everyone has their list of favorites which is generally based on tools that they are used to using. In reality, there are tons of different brands that make great tools. Also, it is important to remember that some of the pros may be using industrial strength products that you may not need in your home workshop.

What is the value in name brand tools. Most people that know anything about woodworking tools have heard of Rockwell Tools, Sears Craftsman, Rigid Tools and Hitachi Tools. Sears is probably the name that all homeowners will recognize. Sears tools are great buys and they are excellent for the home workshop. They have extensive lines of tools that can be used to stock any workshop you are making.

Rockwell, Hitachi and Rigid tools are typically reserved for professional workshops because they tend to have tools that are made specifically for professionals. Of course, amateurs can buy them but this may not be possible when purchasing from a hardware store. Often the only people that are allowed to search through the secure sectors of certain stores are contractors. Others can purchase these products online from the manufacturer.

Low priced woodworking tools can be bought from specialty woodworking shops. Rockler Woodworking is spread out across the U.S. and they offer classes to those that wish to learn about woodworking and the tolls they will need to finish projects. The huge home improvement store may not be the best place to buy tools. Go to a hardware store for a better selection and possibly better prices.

There are some equipment that a well stocked workshop must have. To be ready for those simple woodworking projects, there are a few tools that are must haves. A table saw, wood glue, assorted sanders, nailers and finishing nails must be in stock. You will also need a few power tools, including a drill, a couple of bits, driver and a chisel. If your projects are branching out into the more extensive area, you will also want to have a router, scroll saw and miter saw.

Having cordless tools is a good idea because they are so easy to transport. They have stronger batteries so you will be able to use them for an extensive amount of time. They also are so easy to take to job sites and to store. There will be some jobs where an outlet will be hard to find. This is where cordless tools come into play.
