Tough question. It all depends on what you’ve already got, and how much you have to spend. But I’m confident you’ll figure it out. :-)

Happy Birthday!

It certainly depends on what you have and what you plan on making. You might want to consider a really good set of chisels or something. Maybe a jig to make fine jointery… something that you would find rewarding that will last… so in 30-40 years you can say, “I’ve had these since my 15th birthday and I just can’t wear them out.” Buy a nice quality tool now, and when you get older you will really cherish it.

Happy Birthday!

Not knowing how much money you got, makes it hard to say….

We don’t know what you already have…

Sometimes, you can get some good deals from Amazon, free shipping, etc.

I’ve heard good things about the Rigid thickness planer at HD…

If you’re going to be into doing hand-cut dovetails, a Nielsen DT Saw would be good…

Can you tell us more of what you have, want to do, etc.?

Happy Bithday Callum…
Wow – what to buy… Just make sure it’s QUALITY and something you will really use a lot. A nice hand plane (i.e., block plane) has been a favorite of mine. Buy one and tune it well and you’ll enjoy it for YEARS and YEARS..! Not sure how much cash you have but a Lie-Nelson or Veritas is money well spent. My Record does a nice job (about $60) but I don’t know if they’re available anymore.

Or a subscription to your favorite woodworking magazine would also be nice. There’s also a ton of woodworking books out there. Find something that really interests you and study-up! Books last a long time but the knowlege lasts forever. And Happy Birthday!
