Sudden Cucumber says:

a handsaw, a screwdriver, sandpaper, and maybe a hammer are enough to get started.

Pastor Aris says:

Thank you so much for the video, I enjoy watching woodworking and I was just thinking about what can do start
This video was a blessing.
I’m not very familiar with your channel so I don’t know if you have it already but something that would really help is a video on taking measurements and basic projects featuring specific tools so that we can became familiar with each of the basic tools and so on.
Al I hope you sponsor by some of those brand you covered up,

Hectic says:

While i was working as a wind turbine technician this Bosh hand drill was so strong that couple of guys get twisted wrists cause of it.

John Sanford says:

#1 – DRILL, cordless because 99% of cordless drills have clutches, as opposed to corded drills, where only 1% have clutches. #2 WET/DRY VAC. Set up for dust collection right from the git-go.

DungTrumpet says:

After the Red Tools turned to shit and the Yellow batteries started crapping themselves prematurely, I switched to the Blue platform and haven’t looked back.

Joe Lewis says:

Don’t think you would really need a hammer drill for a beginner woodworker just saying woodworker

Frank - HealthyLifeBro says:

You didnt cover it on the battery of the jigsaw. Its silly to cover things up. And that black base you talk about is a plastic cover for the jigsaw. Its removeble. Just so you know.

Fight Against Abuse says:

Looking forward to the other beginner tools needed videos. Thanks for this one… It’s a start for me.

zakarya hamzeh says:

100% its a angle grinder

Ryan VD says:

why do u tape off the bosch logo, bosch makes some of the best tools on the market, why not advertise it to your new to wood working viewers so they know that its a great brand to rely on? Is it because they arn’t a sponser?

jollyandwaylo says:

Beginners must have a lot of money these days. I didn’t have much money when I started. Get used corded tools and then upgrade when you know what you are doing and know what you personally need in a tool.

Attila Szabo says:

I would definitely recommend an oscillating multitool.

Aiden Sugg says:

I know he’s not trying to name brands but the circular saw is obviously DEWALT…


Charles Phillips says:

Cordless tools don’t cut it for 1 reason. After about 3 years your battery will be toast. With a lot of manufacturers the battery you need will be no longer available. Unless you have the knowledge to rebuild the battery pack you’re left with a paperweight instead of a tool.

Drew Dillon says:

New to the channel man! Great video!! Hope you do one on the hand tools and stationary tools here soon.

Danny Aldana says:

i don’t recommend used tools …

Douglas Hornbeck says:

I wish I would have started out with a hand powered wood planer. But then again I’ve been building with pallet wood.

Pamela Maxfield says:

You have made a wonderful presentation: you communicate clearly, are organized, and knowledgable; thank you.

Bud Fahnestock says:

so much for covering brands, half the batteries and the steel on the dewalt jigsaw weren’t covered, of course everyone knows these by color anyway

Michael Jensen says:

+1 for the mention of battery technology — I used to stay far clear of cordless drills because they just died constantly… — But now a days, I can leave the drill off the charger for days at a time, and I’ve never had the thing die on me yet. — I do recommend getting all of your tools the same brand so that the batteries are all interchangeable though.

CrimSun says:

Circular saws are a bit of a hard thing to find, especially the cordless ones. Will a stone cutter with a wood cutting disc serve as a good substitute?

Blank Omega64 says:

Lost me at the routers

3rd World Garage says:

Just starting out, used tools are hard to beat. You may not get the best of everything, but you can get good enough. So far, I have spent less than $200 for a full size router, 10 in compound miter saw, scroll saw, Delta bench top belt sander, hand held belt sander, Makita orbital sander, corner sander, an almost new 10 in drill press, several planes and a set of router bits. I scour Craigslist, flea markets and the Habitat Restore to find the things I need without spending a lot. Some things are very nice and almost new while others required some elbow grease to make them work well again.

Sheila Mclaughlin says:

Those tools are obsolete when u buy them, I am sick of throwing good tools away because of shot batteries. Better corded so they will last forever

Dwayne Poff says:

Just got into woodworking when I moved into my new house..DEFINITELY wish I would’ve done my research before grabbing what I thought were “the essentials” lol. Live & learn.

Had no idea how important clamps would be! Looking for some help in that “department”.

Also, waiting for that hand tool video.

Tom Jowers says:

It’s just me, but I’d say a common adjustable blade height table saw should make this list.
But you’re definitely right – those are great starter suggestions to get anyone going!

Steven Rerani says:

This video is like my motivation to start woodworking… thanks man, I finally found a hobby I love

Ryan Henslee says:

Thanks for the video this helped me out a ton!

Jay H says:

Dont forget pawn shops for buying tools!!!!

Tjerk Heringa says:

Hey man, relax….

Kevin Ahern says:

Very helpful! Glad you also included ‘accessories’ like the countersink drill bit. Not something I was at all familiar with so I’ll be stopping by Harbor Freight this weekend! Thanks!!

afruitfulbranch says:

Thumbs up for taping over the brand and not promoting a particular one.

barry marovitz says:

I have taped off the names on the tools next clip dewalt saw bam !

Weekend Builders says:

Really nice video, this will help for our new channel!!

Armando Gonzalez says:

Circular saw: DeWalt drill: Bosh impact driver : Ridgid jig saw: DeWalt sander : Bosh Ryobi? Router : DeWalt and festool

MrDangerousme says:

where can we buy affordable tools that is durable and long lasting? can u give some advice i am planning to build small wood shop,

Muscleduck says:

I like the tools but a router I disagree with. I don’t think you need it as a beginning woodworker. Also, I would not shop according to budget, but budget and save accordingly g to the tools I want. Good tools are expensive, and if you buy cheap ones they’ll end up getting replaced by expensive ones anyway. Better to buy quality tools from day 1.

I’ve done a lot of home improvement over the years and if I had to do it again, I’d buy one of those sets that has the most important tools in 1 go. There’s nothing more infuriating than not having the proper tool and having to do a hack job that takes 5 times as long with the wrong tool.

johnny the biff says:

How’s it going with the handtool video, would be nice too see one of those videos aswell.

Dudat Gaming says:

Pick a brand that works for you huh lol p.s. I know these brands by the color hahaha

JronmanBuilds says:

Many brands or router bits now offer undersized bits which are designed for plywood. I got 3 Whiteside dado bits and they work excellent. The fit is great.

Marty Marcum says:

Ive got that same Dewalt jig saw and its such a piece Sh*$. My base will never stay locked. I think in the last 5 years Dewalts quality has went down the tubes

Chez Green says:

Battery powered tools are cool and super convenient. but battery tech still sucks.
