I’m hoping it at least helps someone Ken 🙂  The track of thought I’m following concerns those without work benches and how it’s possible – before aiming for a complete tool kit – for them to become involved in woodworking with minimal financial lay out and equipment.

In this instance, the tools involved were;

1.  7tpi handsaw (My outdoor kit tends to involve using throwaway saws and cheap chisels) – Spear & Jackson “Predator” 1st Fix

2.  Adjustable square – 12″

3. Sliding Bevel – 8″

4. Tape measure

5.  Smoothing plane – #4 Stanley or #04 Record

6.  Claw hammer – 20 oz

7.  Bevel Edged chisel – 1″

8.  Pencil & / or Marking Knife

 

Additional Tools if prepping rough stock

1.  Jack Plane – #5 Stanley / #05 Record with cutting edge set to an 8″-12″ radius

 

Additional Tools – if adding an optional V-shaped crotchet for use when door hanging and/or sawing length-wise on the saw horse

1.  Bit Brace – I tend to prefer a 10″ sweep when drilling heavier stock, but use whichever size sweep you prefer

2.  Auger bit – 1-1/4″ dia

 

Materials

1.  Pine – 6″ x 2″ PSE (Planed Square Edged)

2.  Pine – 3″ x 1-1/2″ PSE

3.  PVA – Outdoor grade

4.  Nails – Round/Oval Headed @ 2″ x 8 Qty
