I get asked a lot about what kind of woodworking tools I use in my shop and content (blog, YouTube, social) tools I use in my office. Here is what I use and what works for me. And let me be clear, these aren’t the tools I started with. I’ve built up this collection over 10+ years and upgraded along the way. I’ve also bought many of the larger tools on Craigslist at significant discounts to the prices you see. I always suggest checking your local Craigslist for deals first.
The links I’m providing are mostly affiliate links. You pay the same price, but it helps support my site. If you do buy through these links I appreciate your support!
If my tool is an older model it will have a * after it. RIDGID tools should be purchased through Home Depot (HD link) to easily get the warranty. Several of the RIDGID tools were provided to me as part of sponsored content but I’ve been using RIDGID tools since I began woodworking back in 2002 and think they are a great value for a great tool.
