You’ve always wanted to get into woodworking, but frankly, it’s a little bit intimidating. Maybe you’ve picked up an issue or two of Fine Woodworking magazine and been put off by the number of tools you see featured or the advanced techniques being used. Perhaps you don’t feel that you have the time, or the space, or the patience to try your hand at woodworking.
Whatever the case may be, we’re here to tell you that you might be overthinking it. At Long Island Woodworking Supply, we’re proud to offer the most essential woodworking tools — and the inspiration for you to get started. At the end of the day, we truly believe that woodworking is a hobby that anyone can get into. So where do you start? We’re breaking it down in today’s post, so keep reading to learn more.
How You Can Start Woodworking — Today!
We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. We’re fortunate to live in a time where so much knowledge is available for free on the internet. YouTube is a goldmine for woodworkers. Whether you prefer to build a simple DIY project to start things off or you have something specific in mind, there’s a great chance that you can find videos that walk you through the process every step of the way. And even if you can’t, we guarantee you’ll learn something just by watching someone else build a project.
Pick Up A Few Essential Woodworking Tools
Here’s the truth — you don’t need the latest and most expensive tools to get started. Instead, figure out the project you want to do, research the tools you’ll need to complete that job, and start slow. Whether your goal is to amass a collection of all the tools you’ll ever need or simply to have what you need to get the job done, this is the perfect place to start. Don’t overthink it. Of course, if you have questions about which tools are the best ones for the job, feel free to contact our team because we’d be glad to point you in the right direction.
Consider Everything an Experiment
Ultimately, if you consider your first project an experiment, you can’t fail! The idea is to simply realize that every project is different, there’s no such thing as perfect, and anyone can be a woodworker. It’s all about learning through experience and always seeking to get better. If that’s your mindset, you can relax and enjoy the process of building a project. We promise that you’ll be thrilled with the results.
