Pocket Hole Jigs
When working with a project that requires the joining of two pieces of wood at a certain angle, pocket hole jigs come in handy. They drill pocket holes into the wood so that you can drill screws down into the wood, securing two angled pieces of wood together. You commonly use these in furniture or cabinet making when creating tight 90-degree angles is key. When using a jig, you clamp it onto your piece of wood and drill angled holes into the wood with a special bit. You can then join two pieces of wood and drill a pocket screw into the hole to align the pieces together.Woodworking Tools and Chisels
Woodworking chisels are a helpful tool when wanting to add carved details to a project. To use a chisel, you can either work it with your hands or tap it with a mallet to create force when cutting away at the wood. There are many types of chisels in the industry, each of which perform different tasks and yield slightly different results. A true professional would have every type of chisel in their toolbox to be able to provide the details that you need on a project. Some woodworking chisels include carving chisels, corner chisels, butt chisels, bevel edge chisels, flooring chisels, mortise chisels and paring chisels. Wood carving chisels are a great tool to have on hand when wanting to add specific detail to your woodworking project.Woodworking Clamps and Vises
Woodworking clamps and vises work in conjunction with pocket hole jigs and chisels to provide the stability needed to work on a project with accuracy without making mistakes. Additionally, they can securely hold multiple pieces of wood together if making furniture or other projects and you need to glue or drill them together. There are many types of clamps and vises available to choose from and it is more dependent upon the scale of the project that you would be working on that determines which clamp and vise works best for you. Clamps, such as pipe clamps, work on a smaller scale and are more portable, while vises, such as table vises, are more stationary and can hold larger pieces of wood. Both of these sets of tools can go together when you're engaged in a project.
