I would say buy a tool, not a jig or accessory. Have fun!

Happy birthday!!!

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. :-)

Hmmmm- girl friend, tools, girl friend, tools.

Yep, tools it is!

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!!!

I would agree with Steve on this one. A nice quality tool that will last a lifetime. Veritas/Lee Valley tools always get good reviews and they have a nice website.

Happy Birthday!! I had a birthday not to long ago and I bought a Bosch 1590EVSK jig saw. My wife and kids always give me money so I can get what I want. Have a great day.

God Bless

Happy birthday kid! Forget the tools, go buy some cigarettes and beer…preferably Camel unfiltered and some Pabst blue Ribbon.

Happy Birthday…. Buy some really nice wood and make GaryK’s clamp, that way you’ve bought tools and wood and had fun in the shop making something useful :-)
