Chances are that you, or someone you know, already own some basic tools that you can get started with. It really doesn’t take many tools to accomplish a wide variety of everyday projects. Some tools are basic and shouldn’t cost a lot, some tools are used loads and may require a higher quality so you’re satisfied, and some tools you won’t need at all!
The barrier to learning about woodworking shouldn’t be behind having the biggest shop with the best tools, there’s lots of people who live in apartments without shop access or who don’t have the money for fixed machines like table saws. With this in mind every lesson in this class uses basic hand power tools to teach the skills and make the projects.
