Welcome To LJs AngieO As a adult woodworking instructor for my local community collage I’m always concerned when I see folks brand new to woodworking buying a lot of tools for a couple of reasons, If you are brand new to woodworking the possibility of you being injured is greatly increased because you are not familiar with the proper use of power tools and their safe operation. The Second reason is that as I teach new comers to woodworking after a short time of use woodworking tools new students very frequently say “I wish I hadn’t bought (fill in the blank)”after learning how tools work and what tools are good and which tools are a bad investment. I would strongly suggest taking a beginners woodworking class for your safety and a better understanding of equipment and tools. I last thing, Enjoy!
