Tools Used

People often ask what power tools I use.  Below are details of some of them along with links to an example of where you can buy them.

You don’t need all these tools to make the furniture shown in the plans you can download for free.  You can start with a cheap drill, the Kreg pocket hole tool and a budget end miter saw for most of the projects.  A sander helps but is not essential if you don’t mind sanding by hand.

I started with one just drill.  To speed up the build process though I added another drill and a driver to save keep changing bits over during a build.

With a few basic tools and the downloaded plans you can save yourself a lot of money building your own furniture.
