Tools to Add to Your Home Woodworking Toolbox

by Boris Dzhingarov on Feb 13, 2019

A lot of home repair projects involve a bit of woodworking. On its own, woodworking is a great hobby to get into, mainly because you can play with making your own furniture and customizing different parts of the house with ease when you know your way around the trade.

To make the whole woodworking experience more enjoyable, you need the right tools for the job. Hand saws, a square and a tape measure are the must-have items, but you can consider adding these tools to your home woodworking toolbox to achieve more.

A Router

Woodworking routers are great for a number of reasons. You can use them for making grooves that allow for two pieces of wood to be joined together perfectly. You can also make trims and accents to the pieces you are working on.

There are some great routers to choose from. The Bosch 1617EVS is the best of the best, especially because it can maintain a steady RPM for a smoother, more controlled finish. It will even work with metal and plastic, plus it has a fine depth adjustment.

You can also go a step further and add a milling machine – a CNC powered one designed for home workshops – for more flexibility. Milling machines and the milling inserts available today are designed to work with 3D materials rather than 2D (flat) ones, so you can do more with a good milling machine.

Thickness Planer

If you work with reclaimed wood a lot, getting a thickness planer is also a good investment to make. As the name suggests, a thickness planer helps you prepare the reclaimed materials by turning it into a piece with predetermined thickness.

The thickness planer works really well with a power jointer. You can straighten the edges of the piece manually, but a power jointer will get you the consistent and smooth result you are after every time.

With these two tools added to your kit, you can use a jointer to flatten, the planer to get the material to the right thickness, and then use the jointer again to straighten and square the edge of that material.

Circular Saw

Not all home woodworking workshops can accommodate a table saw. While the tool is handy for making long and straight cuts, table saws tend to be big. You also need a large work surface when you want to cut longer materials.

As an alternative to table saws, circular saws are worth looking into. You can work on bigger pieces of material outside and take advantage of the portability of a circular saw. When you get a high quality one such as the Black and Decker 20V Max Cordless Circular Saw, making straight cuts is really easy.

There are some creative ways of using a circular saw that you can explore as well. Anything from making angled cuts to creating grooves for gluing two pieces of wood together is doable with a circular saw and the right attachments.

Add these three items to your woodworking toolbox and you will be able to work on more projects and more repairs around the house without hassle. Don’t forget to explore how to maximize the new tools you pick up to benefit more from them.
