For most DIY persons, it can seem to be a very expensive undertaking, but not to worry, as there is hope for you. Do not give up even before you start, as you do not need to begin a project, owning all the most expensive and up-to-date equipment that is available on the market. There are many pieces of equipment which you can avail yourself of, without breaking the bank, or emptying your pocketbook. Do not despair, there are answers for you.
You will need a place to do your work, as a woodworker, so that is your first consideration to make. You need some privacy, without any interruptions, so you can focus on the woodworking project that you want to work on. There is also another factor to consider, the safety issue, as the place should be away from anyone becoming hurt, as you work on this project. Where would your woodworking shop be? That is the first question to decide. The next question, what about the equipment which you will need? This can be costing, depending on which type of tools you are planning on purchasing.
They range anywhere from hand held tools, up to a grade used for industrial use, so there is such a variety of prices and tools available. You probably could find some really good bargains on either eBay or Amazon.com., As there should be lots of tools there for you to buy. Now let us discuss just exactly the tools you would need. There are certain tools which a woodworker can not do without.
1. Power drill – This is a tool which you will always need. They have different speeds to be able to do anything which requires drilling. The cordless ones are very versatile, not that expensive and handy, as you can take them just about anywhere, so this would probably be your best choice. You just need to recharge the system, every once in a while.
2. Circular saw – You will need to practice with this saw at first, but it is a very necessary tool to have, when you are doing any amount of woodworking. With using it on a regular basis, it will not take you that long to adjust to using it.
3. Table saw – This is a saw which you can not carry around with you and it is the largest amount of money which you will have to put out, but really very necessary. You will be using this piece of equipment a lot, so make sure that you buy one of good quality, whether used or new.
This is the major piece of equipment which you will be buying, being more expensive, but really the one tool you will be using the most.
4. Orbital sander – This sander should be a random sander, which will reduce the sanding marks, brought on in patterns, which you do not want.
5. Jigsaw – In order to cut curves, in a pattern, you will need this saw. A corded jigsaw would be the best one to use, as it is easier to replace the blade and feels better when you are using it.
