guess since this is my first post, it’s time to say hi and thank you for the support and help I receive from reading (a.k.a as obsessing if somebody asks my wife) about the topic of woodwork. I have some experience with woodwork after helping rebuilding parts of a cabin and some minor projects here and there over the years.
Basically since I recently bought my first home, I finally have the space and time for a small woodwork shop in my garage. And so started acquiring the tools I think I need or know I want.
The first project of mine started out to be a doghouse (still work in progress…) for two labrador’s using classic joinery. And I hope to create some side income with this renewed hobby of mine. Cause let’s face it tools are expensive and I need to afford it somehow.
Now regarding my question,
I always wanted to have a lathe, since I think they are quite fascinating. But frankly I have the feeling they need a lot of associated tools and I still don’t have all of them or the means to runout shopping to buy them.
I do have a bit of money coming in, about 500-1000$ and thinking to use it for one or more tools, which I can’t really justify normally.
I’m currently looking at:
- jointer plane and jack plane or jointer (don’t really have the space and think a handplane should be sufficient)
What I already have:
- assortment of different handtools (Chisels, Handsaws, Mallets, etc)
thanks for your help!
