« Part 4: ONLINE TOOL SHOPS Part 5 of Woodworking with Aaron series Part 6: Audio Podcasts »

What do you think are the most important hand tools to have in a workshop. Then after a week I will put a list up of everyones ideas and choices and maybe I will do an audio podcast on the topic.

hand tool… hmmm I don’t use a lot of what is considered “hand tools” but… my little mini hammer is a must have for me… the handle is just the length of my hand but it is well balanced and heavy and boy, I use it all the time.

saws—I use a jetcut
chisels
planes
marking tools

no matter how many machines we have, there is always a place for these

mostly chisels
also a block plane for trimming doors and other pieces that don’t quite fit
a coping saw for detail cutting
a dovetail saw for the dovetails i do
lastly like Gareth marking tools. i use them all the time on every project.

I’m sure that there has already been a ton about this written here at LJ and elsewhere. Might be more thorough if you just did a search here and then wrote up a report (or gave a report via a podcast).
