Stocking Your Tool Chest

The tools in the images below are by no means exhaustive, however, they should be enough to get you through the easier projects you want to undertake. While woodworking can be a vocation, it should also be a passion. That love can serve you well as you face the inevitable difficulties that life can present.

Safety First

Please remember that woodworking can be dangerous if you do not take some precautions. Always wear gloves; gouges and saws are sharp and skin will not provide a lot of protection. Remember your goggles; splinters and sawdust can really fly when you start working hard. Always read instructions thoroughly before you begin; you want to have all your necessary tools and materials easily at hand. Pay close attention to any special precautions your materials require; varnishes and paints, for example, require well-ventilated areas.
