Here we go then with the next video in this free series introducing the new woodworker to the basic kit of handtools. All the tools featured here are tried and tested for their indispensability and general usefulness and, with the addition of one or two power tools – notably a cordless drill – they’ll enable you to take on nearly any woodworking or DIY job you might encounter.
It’s worth pointing out that the info contained in the videos isn’t the full, complete and definitive guide to all tools everywhere, but is an entry-level introduction and simple explanation of the mostly commonly used woodworking tools you’ll want in your average kitbag.
Woodworker’s Kitbag – Clamps
Any practical work, and especially carpentry and woodwork, frequently involves a need to hold something steady. For this reason – and for many others – clamps are an indispensable part of the woodworker’s toolkit. There are many different varieties, shapes and sizes, but they all share one common characteristic – they’re all supremely useful.
About This Free Woodwork Video Lesson
In this video we take a look at some of the different clamps available, and weigh up their relative merits. Using clamps to hold your work steady can really change your view of things and the difference is remarkable. Clamps are also vital for holding two component parts together while the glue goes off, and are an essential part of any starter toolkit.
