Question by Daniel: what tools would i need to start hobby in basic woodworking?
Hi, I was hoping someone could make a list of tools & supplies that i’d need to start woodworking. I’m going to try to build bookshelves, toy boxes, etc.. also we’re on a tight budget so just a list of the basic stuff would be appreciated, Thanks!

Answer by Hondu
If you really mean basic you don’t need any power tools. A hand saw, miter box, wood chisel set, brace and bit set, hand plane, sanding block, square, and a hammer will certainly do you want to do. You can in the power tools as you can afford them. Those basic tools have built furniture and entire homes for generations.

    Although it carries the Grizzly name, I cannot recommend this as a good woodworkers apron. It is too stiff and tends to ride-up when you are bending and kneeling.

    The overall construction is good and it does hold the tools well. However, a cloth apron is what I use now.

    Grizzly H2922 Carpenter’s Bib Apron, October 31, 2010
    Fred Anonymous Smith (Huntsville. AL) –

    This review is from: Grizzly H2922 Carpenter’s Bib Apron (Misc.)

    Not really much that can be said about a shop apron. This one works well enough for me. I prefer the separate neck & waist straps used with this apron over the type which crisscross behind the back. The latter style feels a bit restraining and is very often too difficult to get on/off.

    The ballistic nylon canvas material used is reasonably comfortable after being washed a few times. Anything less would probably not resist liquids (paints, stains, etc) soaking through as well. Tools falling out of the lower pockets while bending or kneeling isn’t a big issue for me since I mostly stand upright in the shop. Besides, only use those lower pockets to hold tools momentarily while my hands are busy elsewhere on a project.

    That said, Grizzly did not deliver exactly what is currently shown in the photograph above. Mine has the Grizzly logo located below the chest pockets, directly over the belly or stomach area (certainly not where I want to draw attention to), instead of above those pockets as shown. The colors and pocket locations shown are very similar though.

    The most basic and necessary is a table saw. Then an electric miter saw, and electric drill, sander and jig saw. Once you get some experience the I would get a Kreg pocket hole jig, a planer and a router and router table, Then band saw.There are other things but that is enough to do just about anything. I would steer away from a radial arm saw that is really pretty old technology. If you have a Craigs list near you you can get some really good deals.

    I myself am a woodworker and have accumulated my tools over time. I build things like my own furniture and work benches and cabinets, etc. The first thing you need for accurate woodworking are some good tape measures. My preference is one stanley 12′ tape and a 25′ stanley fatmax. They are easy to handle for the types of projects you’ve mentioned. Next I would get a good combination square. A small framing square. Next a good quality skill saw and I would check a local pawn shop and see if they have a craftsman,dewalt, skil or some name brand and be sure it feels comfortable in your hand and is not too heavy. Next would be a cordless drill or as I like to refer to it (a screw gun). This you would want to buy new. To me dewalt is the best but out of my budget so I have 2 craftsmans and they have been great for over five years and I haven’t had to buy a new battery yet. You’ll need a set of drill bits and also some fastner bits. Get yourself a variety of wood clamps and C-clamps. It’s a good idea to get some good straight edges in a variety of lengths for marking straight lines and can also be used as a guide for your skill saw. Have plenty of pencils. Here are some good links for the tool I have mentioned and also to look over some good woodworking items. Have fun and be careful.

    Woodworking as both a vocation and a hobby predates power tools, so you don’t need to invest much at all to get started. Shop for bargains and the hand tools can all be yours for under $ 100. For small projects, you can do an awful lot with the most basic tools. Here’s a list:

    – Hammer. Rip (straight) or curved claw, it’s up to you. The 16-oz size is the most basic size.

    – Crosscut saw. Most saws you see at Home Depot are crosscut saw; most manufacturers assume that if you have to do any rip cuts (cutting with the grain), you’re going to use a power saw to do it. For short rips you can get the job done with any old saw, no problem. If you have the money, spend a little extra to get the excellent Japanese-style pull saws. They cut on the pull stroke instead of on the push stroke like European and American saws. The blades are thinner and it’s generally easier to use and control so you stay on your cut line better, and the quality of the cut is much finer.

    – Coping (or fret or scroll) saw. For cutting curves and internal cuts. Frustrating to use, do as much as you can with straight cutting implements, and use the coping saw to make the curvy bits. If you have designs (on toys, for instance) that use constant-radius curves, do as much as you can by finding the exact center of the curve, and use a drill bit or even a hole saw to do the curves. Life’s easier that way.

    – Plane. If you aren’t doing a lot of fine work, you can skip this. But I build furniture from time to time and the plane is pretty important. It lets you take a board’s width down in very fine increments, much finer than you can do with power tools.

    – Chisels. Chisels are useful for lots of stuff, as you get further into the hobby you’ll see more and more places where the chisel is so handy. Get one designed to be bonked with a hammer, but don’t ever bonk it with anything but a wooden mallet. Spend a little time to make your chisel bonking mallet. Take good care of chisels, keep them sharp.

    – Drill. Don’t skimp on this, get a good one. Cordless are extremely nice to have around but be sure you have an extra battery and the moment that battery gets soft, switch to the fresh one from the charger. The new 12v lithium battery models are startlingly good, you can snap the head off screws with them just like the big boys, but they tuck into tight spaces for close work, and fit into your pocket when you’re moving around a lot.

    – Bits for the drill. The 1/4″ hex bits are very convenient in that they don’t slip when they’re chucked in. Get the quick-release chuck and switching bits is a tug-and-pop maneuver, great when you’re drilling pilot holes and driving screws.

    – Square. Furnishings need to be made square. Houses are never square and level after a winter or two, but that’s life. You can make your bookshelves absolutely square-and-plumb, no problem. In my shop at home I have a large 24″ aluminum (can’t rust in my unheated shop) square and a very nice adjustable square.

    – Clamps. There’s no such thing as too many clamps. I have about 30 in various sizes. You can get started with just 2-4 of the 2″ hand clamps, and 4 of the 24″ bar clamps. When you need longer, make an extension from scrap lumber, a piece that hooks on the far end or the workpiece and reaches up to hook on your clamp.

    – Screwdrivers. Phillips #1 and #2; slotted 3/16″ and 1/4″ ought to cover 95% of everything you do. When driving screws with the drill, it’s easy to overdo it and bury the head; often you don’t want that, just bring it down snug and flush with the surface, and stop. Doing the last turn by hand is the ultimate control.

    – Measuring tape. That’s pretty obvious.

    – Level. I don’t use this much in the shop while I’m building as a level, but as a reliable straightedge it’s very convenient.

    – Sandpaper. Some people would file this under “shop supplies,” but it’s a necessary tool in my opinion. If you do a lot of small projects you can almost skip the plane if you have a wide array of sandpaper and a good sanding block to protect your hands.

    – Paint brush. A good finish needs good tools. A really good paint brush isn’t going to make a great finish, but it’s so much nicer to use. Take good care of yours. I have paint brushes that cost as much as $ 20 each, but I’ve had them for years. You can get a cheap “chip brush” and use it for one job and it cost you $ 1.00 for the job, and it was a pain in the butt to get a smooth finish and hold that dinky handle…or the brush I have I’ve used on literally 100 different projects, it’s got a nice big handle that’s easy to use, and so far my brush cost per job is about $ 0.20.

    For shop supplies, the essentials: mineral spirits (very handy for wiping down a project to remove dust before finishing, and brush cleaning), glue, pencils, screws and nails, other hardware.

    Good luck with it.

    I’ve been a carpenter for 33 years and you can build most things with a few power tools and some simple hand tools.
    Hand tools:
    Hammer, Hand Saw, Level, Square, Hand Planer, Tri-Square, Nail-Set, Chisels, Pencils,

    Power Tools:
    Skill Saw, Drill w/ Drill Bits & Driver Bits, Orbital Sander, Jig Saw

    Pretty much with those few tools you can build just about anything. If you have any more questions feel free to email me with them and ide be happy to help you further along.

    Heres a great websie I found with tons of projects to do all with blueprints and specs . You should check it out once you have yourself established and want to get into some fun, pretty easy, and rewarding projects

    Firstly, the claw hammers. Everyone has used a hammer at some point in their work. While there are many types, the most versatile is the claw hammer with a smooth, slightly rounded finish head. Choose one that is not too heavy, but feels good in your hand. This type of hammer can be use to pulling out nails. Look for a hammer with a fiberglass or steel handle because pulling nails puts a lot of strain on the handle.

    Secondly, the must have tools for woodworking is 6″ Layout Square. This tool is important for making square marks or angles on stock. It also allows the user to mark angles in a similar manner to the method for determining an existing angle.

    Third and the last I should list here with the details is utility knife. Not only to be used for cutting almost any thin material, but it can be used for things like cleaning out hinge mortises or scoring before making a cut with a power tool. Look for a model that has a retractable cutter and uses reversible, disposable razor blades.

    What you need is based on what you want to do. To use hand tools only you’re going to need at minimum some saws, hand planes, chisels, marking tools, and most importantly an appropriate workbench. Keep in mind you don’t have to buy all the stuff at once.
