Basic Tools You Need To Start Woodworking || Beginner Tool List

In this woodworking tools and tips video, I’ll talk about the basic tools you need to start woodworking as a beginner! To start out my beginner woodworking tools discussion, I’m going to walk you through my journey when a was a beginner woodworker. This video is dedicated to many of the tools you might want when starting out in woodworking. I’ll talk about each tool you should buy and explain why they are the best woodworking tools to buy when you are first starting out.

If you’re a beginner woodworking and you need to buy tools, it’s great to know what essential woodworking tools to buy first. Though my experience, I learned what tools I would want to buy first if I started from scratch. Let me help you save money on tools by buying the tools you absolutely need, first! You don’t need to spend thousands or dollars to get started in woodworking

Are you on a budget and need to know the right woodworking tools to buy first? What brand tools should you buy? Everybody has their own preference, but some of my favorite brands are DeWalt, Ridgid and Makita. Harbor Freight may have some of these tools at a low price. It depends on what tool you’re buying but personally, I would at least go with Ryobi before I buy Harbor Freight. If its something you use on every project, Harbor Freight may not be the best choice. You might be better off going to Home Depot or Lowes and buying a quality tool for a little more money.
