GETTING STARTED IN WOODWORKING
So, you’re thinking about getting into some woodworking, but you’re not sure where to start or what you need. Let me try to point you in the right direction and suggest some tools that I think will give you the most bang for your buck.
Eric Anderson
The basics: You’re going to need a few basic hand tools. You’re reading this, so I’m going to assume you’ve got a hammer and a drill.

I’ll keep this list to the dedicated wood tools. You’ll need some layout tools, a 4 and 12 try square, plus a 24 framing square. A set of three or four chisels. Small hand saw and a block and smoothing plane. There are a lot of great videos on YouTube that cover sharpening and tuning your planes and chisels. Again, I call these the basics. You’ll add lots of hand tools to your collection over the years, but you can do a whole lot with what’s here.
