Considerations for Woodworking Tools
Whether a novice woodworker or a seasoned professional, an important component of preparing for your weekend woodworking project is to make sure that you have the right woodworking tool and safety tool in your tool box for the job. Making do or improvising is like buttering your bread with a fork, it will eventually get the job done, sort of, but never in the time you had allotted to "get er done" or anywhere near resembling what you had envisioned the results to be.
Does this mean you need the very best or latest woodworking tool available? Albeit nice to have; we would suggest the answer is no, instead it is having in your possession the correct type of woodworking tool to achieve the results you desire within the timeframe available. It is better to delay starting the woodworking projects slightly so that you can buy the right hand tool or power tool versus trying to cut metal with a knife instead of a hack saw, (regardless of what they said on TV), as I would imagine it may require extra safety tools.
A basic woodworking tool box should contain at least a set of screw drivers, a hammer, pair of pliers, an adjustable wrench, wire cutters, hand saw, sharp pencil, square and a tape measure, mostly hand tools. A safety tool or two such as eye and breathing protection is a reasonable addition to any tool box. And should you be just a little bit more serious about working with wood, the type and number of woodworking tools can be endless and if your choice is a cordless tool or a corded tool it is wise to consider having at least one corded drill and rotary saw for those extended jobs.
Woodworking hand tools, woodworking power tools, safety tools, shop tools, dust collectors, vises, clamps, grinders, etc., (I am starting to salivate), all add pleasure to woodworking. And, without much planning, just spending a few hours on our website, great woodworking tools could continuously, over time, mysteriously show up to find their rightful place in your tool box.
We have a variety of woodworking tools and safety you can just look at or purchase and, if searching for that special tool, please contact us and we will help you further to find what you are looking for that may be, momentarily, missing from our site.
Please enjoy yourself and take a look around our website while you are here. Whether buying that right power tool for the job or just purchasing a woodworking tool or safety tool to fill that empty spot in your tool box, an important component of preparing for your weekend woodworking project is to make sure that you have the right woodworking tools and safety tools in your tool box for the job.

Take Care of Your Tools
Top of Page
As every experienced woodworker knows, if you "take care of your tools, they will take care of you" when you retrieve that specific tool from your tool box for that special project. It always pays in the long run to show respect for your woodworking tools if you only have one tool, or own more than one tool; work from a limited space; or in a large workshop with shop tools and have a tool box that is organized or not and so on.
The basics are easy for the oldest resident tool of your arsenal or the brand new tool you just purchased from us.
- Always handle any woodworking tool with care for the use it was intended
- Keep your power tools and hand tools in a dry location
- Sort and keep like tools together, it is a nuisance to have to search for a tool
- Lubricate your tools regularly as recommended and definitely if storing for awhile
- Keep your woodworking tools sharp, (where applicable), a dull tool can be both ineffective and sometimes a danger
- Enjoy what they can do for you every time when you take care of your woodworking tools
