The Top Woodworking Tools Your Shop Is Missing (I’m looking at you, homeowners!)

Hi friends,

I came across this old post from Tom’s Workbench recently that talks about tools beyong the basics that many homeowners-turned-woodworkers end up needing, and figured I’d put together a helpful post for it, since many of you may be starting out fresh.

First off are the things you probably have (other than a drill and screwdrivers.. which are no brainers) – I’ve added pictures so you know exactly what each tool looks like, as well as links straight to the pictured tools if you want to check out their specs:

A Circular Saw

DEWALT DWE575SB 7-1/4-Inch Lightweight Circular Saw with Electric Brake

A Table Saw


DEWALT DWE575SB 7-1/4-Inch Lightweight Circular Saw with Electric Brake

Hand Tools, Such as Chisels

Stanley 16-150 150 Series Short Blade 3-Piece Wood Chisel Set

A Bandsaw (this thing is awesome)

POWERTEC BS900 Band Saw, 9-Inch

A Miter Saw

Pssst.. check out our DIY miter saw table post!

Hitachi C10FCE2 10-Inch Compound Miter Saw

A Track Saw

These are a little pricier but worth it for their uses:

DEWALT DWS520K 6-1/2-Inch TrackSaw Kit

That’s it for the “most wanted” tools list by new woodworkers.. what do you think? Any must-have tools that are missing? Let me know in the comments.
