I am an experienced woodworker, but I have no woodworking shop in my home. What tools would I need? How do I start? Can I do woodwork without any tools on my own?
You will need an actual saw. There are many different styles and varieties. You might come across a type called a miter saw, which can be used on both 1″ x 1″ and 2″ x 2″ lumber, and can cut any shape with the handle, but you need one that’s very powerful. Many woodworkers have had success with a set of basic hand saws. We recommend one that has a long 2.5″ extension at the tip. The handle itself needs to be strong enough to cut thin wood. We recommend a saw that can handle 1/4″. If you can’t find a basic saw, a 1/2″ or 4″ miter saw work great too. Look for a variety of sizes. A typical woodworker kit will likely come with one of these:
• Miter saw
• 1/8″ x 10-1/2″ sheet
• 1/4″ x 10-1/2″ sheet
• 1/2″ x 10-3/4″ sheet
• 3/4″ x 15-3/4″ sheet
• 1/2″ x 15-3/4″ sheet
• 1″ x 16-3/4″ sheet
• 1/8″ x 4-1/2″ sheet
We know it’s tempting to make your own saw, but don’t! For starters, there are so many types of saws. Your saws will not be as effective as a saw with all of them for a couple of reasons.
First, if you’re doing any woodworking that requires the cutting of straight edges (like filing cabinets), you probably need a longer saw. For that, you’ll need a longer 2″ or 2-3/4″ extension at the tip. For a simple finish that needs smooth edges, you need a longer 4″ extension at the tip of the saw.
Second, many saws that have a longer handle will cut unevenly. That can cause damage such as splitting, splitting at the grain, and other problems with finishing. If you find that your saw is cutting unevenly, consider buying additional extension pieces to improve its cutting performance and quality.
After all this, your saw should last you for
