A quick note about buying your own  joinery tools

I have a very simple attitude to buying tools – I buy the best tool I can afford to get the job done. I’m not tied to any particular brand and prefer to keep my options open so that I can buy the best tool available. Obviously some of the joinery tools I use are old and you can’t buy them any more, so I’ve tried to find equivalent newer models where possible, or models I’d consider purchasing when my tools finally give up the ghost. As such this list is constantly evolving so please keep checking back! Do your own homework – my product links are just intended as a starting point so you know what I’d consider using. The products are listed via affiliate links – this doesn’t cost you a penny extra but helps to keep this site going. Keeping this list up to date is a bit of a challenge so if you spot a mistake please get in touch – thank you!
