Dear B&D Buddy,
I am a newcomer to DIY and am very interested in creating a unique piece of furniture on my own. When I check online DIY forums, I hear about so many technical sounding woodworking tools that I don’t know where to start! Please help.
Confused in Chennai
We have all gone through this stage when getting into serious DIY for the first time; so don’t let this make you hesitate to jump in! These are the most common tools that you will need for woodworking:
- A saw for cutting the planks of wood to the desired sizes
- A router for cutting in precision and with angles and curves where needed
- A planer for removing a surface cut and leveling the pieces, in thicknesses such as 2mm at one go
- A sander that can level for finer thickness and help in sanding your wood.
Depending on the project that you embark on, you may need at least 2 or more of the above. Do check out our range of woodworking tools from B&D here.
