Welcome back among the pages of my “Diary of an Apprentice Woodworker”!
Today I’ll take as an example, that reminds me of my childhood, Kids TV Shows where they demonstrated how to create some little projects whit paper and glue.
Do you remember how they illustrated the tools that would be needed to implement the project of the episode?
Very simply (they addressed to children) were showing all the tools and materials needed before you start with the actual construction.
And it’s to those TV Shows that I want to inspire for this article.
By now I intend to simplify as much as possible this topic that is really extensive.
In fact there are a lot of tools, including Traditional Joinery and ModernJoinery, used by Woodworkers.
On entering the shop of a Woodworker you have certainly noticed large machines like saws of all kinds, planers, work benches etc …
But it’ll certainly eye fell also on the famous work bench.
With this article I will help you to select just the tools you need at first, to make small and simple projects.And on the wall near this bench, a myriad of tools of which it’s hard to understand the usefulness, if you are not a Pro.
Also because many of those tools are quite expensive and we don’t want to spend so much all at once!
Maybe we’ll buy a little at time…
At the end of this article, you should create your little Woodworking Kit and you will be ready to start to Work Wood.
Ok, let’s start!
THE BASIC TOOLS FOR WOODWORKING
Let’s discover the tools that you should buy now if you want to begin to make a small project with wood .
I write this article because I know the uncomfortable feeling you can get when, in the middle of a process, you find yourself without a crucial tool and you are forced to stop.
Right in the middle of the creative flow!
These things make me nervous…
Obviously I’m not talking about tools that we all have in the garage (pencils, screwdrivers, pliers, cutters, wrenches etc)
And I’m not talking about security objects (even these deserve a separate article), but for now you should at least wear thick gloves and a mask to avoid breathing in wood dust.
Let’s talk about specific equipment and a little more professional.
So don’t get caught unprepared!
Arm yourself with these 15 essential tools:
Woodworker Set Square
Sandpaper (various grits)
Files and rasps
Probably still you do not have a real Work bench .
So I suggest, in the meantime, to work on an old table to not have troubles.
BEFORE YOU’LL BEGIN I TELL YOU A SECRET
