If getting into woodworking is something you are interested in, going out and getting all the necessary woodworking tools is a must. This is just as true whether it is to be a professional career or just a hobby. The following is a guide to woodworkers supply.
You will definitely need some hand tools. They are the most important part of your woodworkers supply and are what you will use the most. Beside, you can not jump into power tools until you have first gotten the hang of the hand tools. The essential hand tools that you will need to get started include a hammer, a set of chisels, or at least one, maybe one one inch one, and a square for starters. As far as power tools, for cutting wood, the main ones you will want are a skill saw, chop saw, table saw, and a jig saw. For attaching it, you will need a screw gun or nail gun. Most nail guns require an air compressor and hose as well.
A good set of woodworking plans is also a must have. They can help you decide what your next project can be, and if you have something in mind, they tell you step by step how to build it. These save a ton of time, and if you're a pro, save money too. They can be found online.
Safety supplies are a necessity as well. Woodworking, while fun and rewarding, can also be very dangerous, not only for newbies, but even for people who have been at it for years and years. A good pair of gloves, safety glasses, and a dust mask are good to have.
One final tip is to not be cheap on your woodworkers supply. If you are going to be spending significant time woodworking, quality is key. Cheap tools are just that – cheap. Cheap tools make a project much harder than it needs to be. Take it from me, when I first got into woodworking, I did not want to spend a lot of money, and every project I did was a battle. When I finally started buying better tools, my jobs got way easier and the quality of my work got way better. I began to learn quicker too. Quality tools are worth every penny, and if you are a pro, they will even save you money.
