It’s not the tools that make a craftsperson, but the difference they make is pretty big. Kicking off your woodworking journey with the right kit will enhance your experience while saving you a good deal of money down the line; they say “buy once, buy right” for a reason. Fortunately, getting started with this noble craft isn’t all that expensive. A few hundred dollars will buy you a whole set of quality woodworking tools and equipment that would last for many years. If you’re planning on setting up your own woodwork space, there’s a list of tools you’ll need in order to start off.
3 Master Builder-Approved Woodworking Rules
Master builders go by three fundamental principles about working with wood. Keeping these in mind will allow you to take your woodworking hobby (or job) to the next level.
- Never scrimp on tools and equipment; get the best quality you can possibly afford.
- Use the right woodwork tool for the job. Using a screwdriver as a chisel is a huge no.
- A good craftsman never blames his tools.
