This week I am continuing my intro to woodworking series and sharing about woodworking tools for beginners! There are 5 essential woodworking tools for beginners that I think are needed to get started with woodworking.
I think it’s important to just learn how to use the most essential woodworking tools when you are just getting stared. Once you learn how to use the essentials, you will feel much more comfortable learning how to use other tools. Further, tools are an investment and can become expensive to purchase a lot a once. So, just purchasing a few of the most often used tools is a good place to start budget wise as well.
The following 5 tools I use for the majority of my DIY furniture builds and home improvement projects. Also, in other DIY build plans and projects, you will see these tools being used over and over again.
One more thing to note is that I am assuming most people already have common household tools like a tape measure, screwdriver, and hammer, which are also often used in woodworking. So, I’m not including those in my top 5 list below, but those are very important to have as well! Side note, learn how to read a tape measure the easy way here!
