What Supplies Do You Need for a Woodworking Project?
You’re a master at your craft, but without the right tools, creating beautiful pieces can get increasingly difficult. The attached video advises on the supplies needed for a woodworking project, specifically the different types of clamps.
For a woodworking project, you must have the tools for measuring, holding, cutting, assembling, and finishing the piece. These include tape measures, saws, drills, sandpaper, planes, hammers, and clamps.
Clamps are used to temporarily hold different parts together while you work on them. There are several types, and getting the wrong one will end up costing you money.
C-clamps are commonly used for metalwork but are not great for woodwork. Hand-screw wooden clamps are great for woodwork. They exert a lot of pressure, and the wooden jaws won’t ruin the surface. Spring clamps are good for clamping stop blocks on fences. Band clamps are good for applying lateral pressure.
F-clamps are inexpensive, strong, and versatile. Pistol-grip clamps can be operated using only one hand and are great for glue-ups of small and medium parts. Parallel clamps can apply a lot of pressure and are great for gluing panels and laminates.
Don’t buy too many different types, and only buy what you need for your projects.
