saw horses -2
sliding t bevel
nail sets
low angle block plane
razor knife
snap line
chisels
hand saw
4 way rasp
cats paw nail puller

if you plan to work for your self ,
take what you need .
if you are hired by a contractor,
he is supposed to supply any specialty tools ,
if you bring yours , he will smile and use his for another job,
and everyone on your job will want to use yours

bless you , and good luck !

and let me add just one thing , charles .

hold your love of woodworking like an ember in you heart ,
in the outside world ,
it is easy to get used and mistreated ,
learn to separate your love of w.w. ,
from a job .
that way if you get banged up some ,
you always have your true calling within you , safe .

a job is something you do to eat .
work is what you do , because you are alive .

CJ,

Get a couple of 6 or 8 foot step ladders. Use them alone or set them up with 2×6 or 2×8’ between them for a scaffold- that really makes thing easier when you don’t have to move the ladders so much.
