What is a wood crafting tool?
Starting off your journey with the right set of basic woodworking tools for beginners will not only improve your experience with the craft, it will save you a lot of time in the long run. There are six main applications of basic woodworking tools. Those are tools to cut, carve, edge, shape, sand and prepare while also transforming raw materials into completed projects.
From building a wooden bench to installing a trim mold, chances are you will need to cut the wood to size. RYOBI has a wide range of cutting tools to help you do just that. A jigsaw is the most versatile kind of saw. It can accurately cut both straight lines and curves. A circular saw is mostly used for fast, accurate cutting of straight lines. A multitool is ideal for cutting a wide range of materials and can be used to sand!
Want to get creative with some scrap pieces of wood or take your crafting to the next level? RYOBI has a power carver and rotary tools for any wood carving needs. Carving wood is all about patience, tools and timing. Perfect for both the beginner hobbyist or the expert crafter.
For edging, routers are one of the most versatile tools in woodworking. More than just a way to bevel an edge, a router can create all kinds of edge profiles, be used to square wood edges, and even used as a thickness planer to level uneven wood. Shaping is used to change the size and shape of wood. Like planing, it will remove material from the wood in a controlled environment.
Sanding is the unsung hero of any project with wood. Though sanding makes wood feel smoother, it’s really the process of abrading wood fibers so that they are rendered uniformly rough. A powered sander can save you a lot of time and sweat and means you can get on with more crafting. Most raw wood feels rough and flakey, with marks, dents, and other blemishes on the surface. Surface preparation with a sander means you can get the wood in a smooth condition ready to paint or stain. It also makes the wood nice and smooth for paint to transfer easier.
