http://www.jonpeters.com/ People often ask me what tools should they buy first, to get started in woodworking. Well my advice in this order is. A good table saw with a good fence, I suggest a Biesemeyer fence, a sliding compound miter saw and a 18 gage nail gun and compressor combo kit. That will get you started in the shop. For hand tool and I’m referring too power hand tools start with a cordless drill/ screw gun, a circular saw and a jig saw. For sanding I like the Bosch belt sander 4 x 24 and the porter cable palm sander

    You made a scale model of your next project? Cool, but the full size would seem easier to make.

    Just curious, as an amateur wood worker, I am shopping for tools that I need when ever I can, do you have any preference to any brands of tools that you notice out perform others? Or are they all so close that it depends on who has the better sale price or package?
    I ask this because I notice quite a difference in brands among your tools but no ryobi (not picking on ryobi, just that brand comes to mind) tools in your set.

    So, after seeing lots of vids like this, everyone says something different, but they always say the same for number one most important shop tool: Table saw. Too bad it is normally the most expensive of the list LOL.

    As someone who has done this work for years for others but does not have a big budget for personal tools I recommend to people that they keep their tools corded including their drill, and when they have finally gotten a full set of basic tools go back and get a battery powered drill or drill/saw combo kit because it will make life easier. Corded tools never run out of power…and they never become worthless because the expensive battery packs are shot.

    Cheers for the Video! Apologies for butting in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you researched – Antonello Astonishing Woodwork Takeover (just google it)? Ive heard some decent things about it and my GF finally produced the most exceptional woodwork masterpiece with it.

    I noticed that you make a lot of artist equipment, frames, etc.  Have you made any artist's easels?  I want to construct my own H-frame artist easel and looking for a good design.  There are a few videos on YT but not many.
