How do you know you’re getting what you paid for when you buy lumber?
Having the “right” tools for any woodworking project makes the work a whole lot easier and more efficient. Last year we came up with a list of some of the most essential tools every woodworker should own. This year, we’ve added to the list. Check out the tools we recommend for 2015 and see how they compare to what’s in your tool box.
Many woodworkers opt to dry their own wood to avoid the high cost of commercially kiln-dried lumber.
Drying wood at home can be done in one of two ways – air drying the wood or putting it in a solar kiln you construct on your property. But there are safeguards you must take to ensure the wood dries properly and is ready for use to avoid disaster.
Woodworking has a long and fascinating history.
It began with ancient man who crafted weapons and primitive tools using wood. It continued through the centuries with advanced civilizations inventing new tools, some of which are still used today. It’s said that woodworking tools are like windows to the past. They give us an amazing glimpse of the civilizations that created them.
