clamps, planes, drills, bits, routers, etc. Always buy the best you can afford because they may look the same and do the same function, but the discount models don't tend to stand up as well and it will cost you more in the long run when you have to start replacing worn out equipment. You will also have to consider the amount of space available in your shop. Depending on the type of you may need a lot of space surrounding the equipment for instances where you would be dealing with long boards that need to be cut.

Plan out you workspace before you go out and start buying the equipment. You'll want to keep the hardware accessories away from your workspace where you can keep it clean and organized. A lot of folks initially seem to forget about the amount of sawdust that is created when working with wood. It doesn't take very long to realize that you need a good dust collection system and it can take up a lot of space. In the planning process, you should consider if the workshop is going to be in a part of the home or will it be in a separate building which would be ideal if that option was available to you. Even with a good dust collection system, somehow some of it always seem to make its way into the house.

A quick sweep of the internet can be a wealth of information for the types of equipment that can be used for the diverse types of projects. For example, Ashley Iles is well known for making great carving tools, such as gouges, and especially chisels. You may be able to find some plans by Carlyle Lynch who was an inspired teacher of woodworking.

The Internet can greatly assist you and save you a lot of time searching through hardware stores when you don't know what features you will need. Online you will find sites that will compare the different models side by side so that you can sit at home, jot down the various features, and then make out a list of tools you'll want in your own workshop.
