But don’t let that dishearten you, a table saw is not as complicated to use as you might think, sure it’s bigger than your average saw but it’s pretty useful when working on bigger projects, making it easier to cut precisely. The good thing about the woodworking tools is that they are easily restorable, so once you buy them you can use them for years and years, so you won’t end up wasting your money!

Wood isn’t naturally smooth – it’s actually pretty harsh and has lots of texture, so you need to smooth it down on your own! In most cases, your wooden projects need to be smoothed down, so instead of spending lots of time and energy on sanding it by hand, you can use an electrical round sander instead. It’s a bit pricier when you compare it to a piece of sanding paper, but you’ll end up saving manpower, and you’ll do the job so much easier and faster. A sander is pretty useful if you want a precise, smooth surface with zero bumps and textures – it’s the only tool you’ll need.

Basically, a router is a device used for cutting small pieces of wood, and it’s used for more delicate and precise work. Another good thing about this tool is that it’s multifunctional, so you’ll use it for cutting other materials as well!
