Suggested Woodworking Tools: Overview
|Our plans are designed to be built using minimal tools. However, that does not mean you should use the wrong tools for the job. For instance, nails should be driven with a proper hammer, not a rock. Power tools will always work better than hand tools and unless you are an Amish carpenter, you'll probably agree. |
The first step in wood working is to select the proper eye protection.
Don't even THINK about starting a project without a suitable pair of safety glasses or goggles. You may look think you look silly, but it's better than spending the rest of your life walking around with a white cane wearing dark glasses.
Here is an overview of suggested wood working tools for the home bar builder.
Approved Safety Eye Glasses
Hammer - For our bar projects a Hammer is used primarily for finish work. Any smooth faced carpenters hammer will do fine. DO NOT use framing hammers with "teeth" on the face. The diamond corrugation is designed for traction, but will make any overstrikes on finish work look like a if was hit with a meat tenderizer.
Tape Measure - A good 16' Stanley works best. Always measure twice, cut once.
Pencil and Marker - both will come in handy.
Cordless Drill - Although you can try a hand screwdriver, after the first screw you'll give up in favor of a portable cordless drill. Use at least a 12V model.
Miter Saw - Again, hand miter saws are fine if that's your thing, but a power miter saw can be purchased for around $100. Spend more if you intend heavy use.
Table Saw - The Table saw will allow for precise long cuts and trim work.
Belt Sander - Before you apply a drop of stain or finish, be sure to sand, sand, sand!
Detail Sander - The better you sand, the nicer the final finish will look.
Air Powered Finish & Brad Nailer - Indispensible for hardwood trim & molding work. Once you start using an air nailer to assemble your projects, you'll be building like a pro.
|Specialty Tools and Jigs:|
Pocket Hole Jigs - The secret tool for building cabinets, door frames and cabinet trim.
Easy to use by any novice wood worker. READ MORE
