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 – Squares
Much of carpentry and woodwork in general involves a discipline of straight lines and square markings to achieve attractive and functional results, and a square is rightly seen as one of the indispensable tools required. For every cut you need a line to work to, and a square will assist in this aim.
