My Tools

I am often asked on Instagram about what tools I use or what tools I’d recommend. My choices in tools have changed as skills have grown. Many of my larger stationary and bench tools were Craigslist scores. In some cases, I have been gifted some tools listed below. And in most cases, I have scoured the internet, read forums and reviews and tried the find the most cost effective option. Amazon has been one of the most common places that I have purchased new tools. The copious number of reviews, the easy return policy and free, quick shipping are hard to beat since I am not close to woodworking or woodturning retailers.
