A pro’s advice on tools for the novice woodworker
Michael Dunbar explains what tools a novice woodworker should purchase first and how to evaluate them. If he had it to do over again, he’d start off by getting a smooth plane, a tablesaw, a ruler, a mortise gauge, a set of chisels, and a dovetail saw. There are dizzying quantities of these tools available, and his advice points out how they vary, how to select them, and how to use them.
