Basic Carpentry Tool Lists:
1. Circular Saw
|This Ryobi circular saw came with the tool kit that my husband bought for the rip saw to cut the fender of his Cherokee jeep 7 years ago (so old, I just realized!). It was still unused when I first used it :)|
Most used tool in all my tools. I'm woodworking on a budget but for folks that are not, table saw is an advanced tool to have. Although if I were to buy new circular saw, I would get the corded one since I don't like having to wait for the battery to charge. Even with two alternating battery, circular saw used up energy so fast (at least mine does) that I have to wait especially when cutting hardwoods. Also, I read somewhere that corded tools last longer than cordless tools.
|Yes I did bought one! and this is very powerful but heavy too.|
Another most used tool.
-For cordless drills, power is measured in battery voltage. Higher voltage means more torque-spinning strength to overcome resistance.
-Buy a drill based on how you will use it. It doesn't make sense to pay $200 for a tool you'll use only to hang pictures. Nor is it a good idea to pay $50 for a drill only to have the motor burn out after a few days of heavy work. -(from This Old House)-
6. Miter Box Saw
I use a lot of moulding and build lightweight frames (mirror frame, canvas frames, crafts, etc) and this less than $10 bucks tool lets me cut edges in different angles.
7. My Other Tools
Clamps of different sizes. I got pipe clamps that my father-in-law gave that's not on this photo.
Kreg jig used to make pocket holes. This single hole is worth under $20 bucks, can buy the two or three holes.
Nail set used to drive the head of a nail flush with or below a surface of the wood.
And of course, your pouch! My pouch don't go to my waist but to a bucket, tools are heavy, you know! :)
I hope I didn't left out any tools.
Maybe when I get my workshop and with the savings from making my own furniture, I will buy better and more advance tools, but for now, these tools will do fine to build couple more sturdy furniture :) Pin It
