1. Basic Tool Set
- Screw drivers
- Measuring Tape
2. Power Drill
3. Staple Gun
4. Saw (Table saw, rotary saw or jigsaw, just depending on what projects you expect to complete)
- Chop saws are great for angled cuts and straight cuts. I have a 10" blade and am able to cut wood for furniture and picture frames.
- Circular saws are handheld and allow for greater flexibility in use (they don't need to be on a table), and are great for those wood pieces larger than a table saw blade but you lack the guaranteed straight line.
- Jig saws are great because they are easy to use. I use mine for cuitting circles of ottoman pieces and detailed wood cutting with unqiue angles and shapes.
