Η τέλεια μέθοδος για όλους
I love your videos.
OMG!! Love the video!!
Is there a video showing us how u make something only using these tools
Super helpful, what a great start! Can’t wait to explore the rest
Interesting list. I’m a little surprised you waited that long to get a circular saw. I’m new to woodworking and appreciate your videos.
Links – Brad Nailer and Kreg RIP Cut are the same link. Thanks
She’s great, thank you
Thank you Anika. Good information
I’ve heard good feedback about the Woodglut plans.
A combination square, tape measure, tenon saw or Japanese saw, chisels and a number 4 plane. And as a bonus, a sharpening system which could be sandpaper, stones or diamond plates.
Hi, I have a 4 ft plank 3" wide and 3/4". I want to do a 25 deg bevel cut on both sides across the 4ft length. I did one side on table saw by tilting the blade. This was ok because other side length was 90deg running with the fense.
How do I now bevel the other side when the already cut bevel is not touching the fense for 3/4".
Why do we need both miter saw and circular saw
Great video. Love that you go into detail and also add mini videos when you’re explaining into detail. Thank you!
Thank you again!! Great detailed instruction without the usual ego. Blessings!
It’s FABULOUS to see other women of colour in the trades! Thanks for teaching and inspiring the rest of us 🙂
first 5 tools speed square, machinist square, ruler, tape measure.
Could you do a video on measuring
I feel like you are watching me!! This is exactly what I’ve been looking for thank you!
Thanks Anika ,you explain so clear and the video so helpful ✌️
Thank you for this list! I’ve found a lot of videos (usually by macho dudes *eye roll*) insisting that you need thousands of dollars worth of equipment to just get started. I guess they had a lot more money than I do when they were complete novices.
Happy to see an Indian doing this wood work. Because many Indian men won’t approve their wives
WOOOW YOU ARE THE BEST REALLY ….LOVE YOU.
please give subtitles . very difficult to understand.
dARN, i WAS HOPING SOMEBODY WOULD LIST THEM! I couldnt understand what #2 was.

After watching several video’s, i must say, i am pretty much convinced by your recommendations in this video…thanks a lot. Love from India
Thank you. I would love to begin making things. Right now its wood and glue. small projects. My grandpa was a carpenter.
How is the ryobi miter saw?
Anika, if you can do it, I can do it as well. Thanks for giving me hope, two thumbs up :))
The link in the description for the Kreg Rip-Cut is actually the same link for the Brad Nailer.
towards the end , i wanted to give her a BIG ol trophy
Is the miter saw you have good for cutting moldings and baseboards?
Jigsaw, cirkular saw, sander, plungerouter and two drilldrivers is better to start with!
Thank you for this video and for your tutorials. It’s so refreshing to find a DIY channel with power tools made by a woman!
Thank you. Did you ever use a handsaw? Thinking about those to save money.
Is that a 12’’ miter saw?
Thanks Anika, this video was very useful. I am seriously considering adding a Mitre saw to my tool kit as I am interested in doing some more advanced projects – building a work shed right now and accurate cuts are essential for the framing – I can’t see straight so every cut made is always a bit off 😅😂. Also getting an additional drill driver, I totally agree that one is ok but two speed up the project and they are a must have. I have been using power tools for years but only once in a while. COVID lockdown got me busy and I am using my tools more now. Your videos are great and it’s fun to see another woman setting out information rather than the more experienced guys (no offense to the guys but they don’t really cater for newbies). Keep the videos coming 👏👏👏- just subscribed.
Hello Anika I’m watching from Botswana I would like to start woodworking projects and do them for leaving please help me with plans
Again, thank you so much Anika. Very comprehensive; you answered some essential questions I had and confirmed that I should buy both a Kreg jig and a brad nailer. Can you please provide info about the specific brad nailer you have? Thank you.
you say you can’t build much without power tools… gee that is funny they used to build a whole house with only the tools they carried on their backs!
Do you have any recommendations for work benches/ cutting benches?
You showed well over 5 tools. And your title is just stupid. Wood working anything requires at least a dozen tools. Change your name to furniture maker. And where the heck is the TAPE MEASURE TOOL? dump the skill saw because your more likely to get hurt with that and buy a small table saw. Not impressed at all about your tool selection. But love you have a passion to make things. Rethink your video.
Your videos are so helpful! We just started woodworking and you ease our anxiety and answer so many questions! Thank you!
which sliding miter saw would you recommend? low to mid price range
Like ur vedios
