(SOLVED) What Are Basic Woodworking Tools?

If you’re on a tight budget, you can get by with just a dovetail saw for awhile. But if you have the means, then I’d recommend that you purchase three backsaws: (1) a dovetail saw, with fine rip teeth, used for cutting joinery along the grain (like dovetails), (2) a “carcass saw” used for cutting across the grain (fine cross cut teeth), and (3) a larger tenon saw used for cutting deeper cuts, like tenon cheeks, along the grain (rip teeth) 🙈 All three saws are used very, very often in my workshop 🔥 As mentioned above, you could certainly get by with just a dovetail saw at first, since the small rip teeth don’t do too bad of a job at cutting across the grain 😉 Buying backsaws can be very confusing because most sellers don’t know what saw they have, and the tooth configuration can change the job of the’s having seen. Most people that sell antique saws mix the names up, so don’t worry. My buyer’s guide really clears this confusion up and will help you know what to look for. [1]
This tool will essentially replace your screwdriver (of course, you’ll still want to pull it out for some small tasks, but this makes most jobs way easier). A power drill + driver is what you use to drill holes in your walls, screw things in, and it’ll be the first thing you reach for when you’re building your first piece of furniture and need to attach some wood together. This is an absolutely essential power tool for anyone who wants to work on DIY projects in the home, and it’s the first tool I’d recommend getting! Don’t forget to grab a drill bit set set set, too!

Javaris Post wood-create.comAccording to, no matter which powered saws are used, there will be a time when you need a manual handsaw. They’re good for precision cuts, like jigsaws, but they’re much easier to take on the go or use in different spaces thanks to the fact that they’re light, don’t have any cords or batteries and are completely manual. You can choose from ripping, crosscut or combination handsaws. Having at least one handsaw with you will ensure that your cutting abilities are never compromised, regardless of the power of other tools. [3]

If you google “Table saw jigs” you will get an endless list of jigs that can make your life easier. There are jigs that will replace most of these tools. You can turn your table saw into a jointer, cut perfect 45 degree miters (even a miter saw can’t do that), make a crosscut jig that can essentially replace your miter saw, and I’m having even seen guys turn round bowls on a table saw. You don’t even need a lathe! The jigs can also be used as work benches. A table saw doubles up as an extension of the existing table saw. An outfeed table can be added to create a fully functional workspace. Don’t be afraid to buy a used table saw if you are at all handy. There isn’t much that can’t be fixed/adjusted so long as the motor works. Last modified by Tamyra from Khabarovsk (Russia) 92 days ago [4]
