Woodworking tools gift

Best gifts for a beginning woodworker: Setting up a Wood Workshop

This will set your new wood worker on a hobby for life. These are also great for people who don’t have a huge amount of space – say a garage that only really has wall space available.

  1. Dewalt Compact Job Site Table Saw
  2. Ryobi Miter saw with radial arm (Home Depot, shipping available)
  3. Kreg R3 Jr. Pocket Hole Jig System
  4. Shop Vac
  5. Safety glasses
  6. Ear protection
  7. Hand sander
  8. Router
  9. Circular saw
  10. Giftcard for local lumber yard

Some of these tools are totally fine second hand if you’re up for browsing. Also try factory reconditioned or “open box” specials. Even a piece or two can get your woodworker started. Additionally, many communities have communal workshops which can add to your woodworker’s enjoyment of their new craft.
