The Best Woodworking Tools

Feb 2, 2008
Finding the best woodworking tools is a mixture of personal preference and advice. What may be best for one person could not be the best for another person. So, the only way to find the best tools is to look at what the experts say and then use your own opinion to make the final choice.

Choosing by Name

Brand name products get the most recognition because they are more advertised and professionals back them due to agreements with the company. However, there may be some good reasons they are well known, too. Popular brands like Sears Craftsman, Rockwell, Hitachi and Rigid are usually name people are familiar with. They are readily available and names out in the pubic eye. They are usually pricey, though. However, they are well made and do a good job. In contrast there are discount brands that may not be as well known, but that cost less. The risk with buying such tools, though, is the difference in quality. With tools you tend to get what you pay for, so when you pay less you get less quality.

What you Need

When you are out buying tools it helps to know what you need. The well stocked workshop should have the basic tools - a table saw, sanders, wood glue, finishing nails, hammers, a drill, a driver and bits, chisels and various woodworking tools such as a miter saw and router. Additionally, cordless tools are a great thing to have. Cordless tools are now built to be very long lasting with batteries that can go quite some time without charging. Some cordless tools to have are drills, hammers, driver and lights. Lastly, it helps to keep the shop tidy when you have a shop vac. When well stocked your shop should have every tool you will need for any project.

How to Afford It

You may be wondering how you can afford to stock your workshop if brand name tools, which are quite costly, are the best investment. Well, the way to do it is to buy a little at a time. Buy a tool whenever you have extra money to do so. You can also ask for tools as gifts. Without being pushy, simply suggest the exact tool you want, including the brand name. In the end you will be glad that you did not just go buy any old tools, but took the time to get the quality tools.
