Andy Anderson spoke to the club about tools that beginning woodworkers should have to get started.  

Tips:

Buy the best tool that you can afford.  Y

A 16 ft tape measure is sufficient; avoid the bulky bigger ones unless you are going to do framing.

A blade-left circular saw makes seeing the line easier.

A 3/8 inch drill with attachment for drilling straight or at an angle.

A good set of chisels and a rawhide head hammer.

An inexpensive miter saw and miter box.

Tapered drill bits.

Straight line palm sander.
