Woodworking Tools

The right kind of woodworking tools will make all the difference to your enjoyment of the hobby of making wooden toys and other small woodworking projects.

Workbench

The most important tool in your workshop does not even look like one because it is fact your workbench. If you think about it, it form the very foundation that all your projects are built on.

That is one reason why the right woodworking workbench is so important that many books have been written about them.

My first workbench, if you can call it that, was in fact the Black & Decker Workmate. Still have it today, although don't always use it as a proper workbench, more of a support for things like my home built router support.

When I realized that I really did need a proper workbench, I could not find any plans that were suitable for any number of reasons, so I decided to design my own woodworking workbench. You can download the free plans here.

Measuring Tools

Measure twice, cut once is a truism often quoted, and with good reason. Here are a few of the essential tools to help you do just that.

A combination square is one measuring tools I use all the time.

Hand tools

A smoothing plane is another essential tool that I use all the time.
