Essential tools for Woodworking



I am listing what I consider to be the essential woodworking tools for a beginner to get started. this of course is objective and I am sure others will believe differently. I encourage you to post comments both with what you agree with and where you think I am off base. Please remember that this is very objective and everyone will have their own opinion. meaning no one is really right or wrong :)…

At the end I think I said around $100. That was a bad guess. With a corded sander and budgeting $100 for the drill and bits it is more like $400. I also put $30 for each plane used. This is doable at flea markets. When I said $100 I was going without the sander and $20 for the drill. So that rout is going to be more like $275… Best advice is buy the tool only when you need it.

One more thing. That Makita drill kit is $250!!!!!!! I bought it used about 3 years ago and got a good deal. I honestly would have used the Ryobi drill in a beginner video if I knew these were that expensive. Sorry about that.
