Hello all! I was wondering about any specific tools needed for the first few chapters \ projects in Paul’s Woodworking Book and DVD series. Point being, after being in Afghanistan for a year – I’m headed back home to Germany (US Soldier stationed in Bamberg). I’ve enjoyed being a subscriber to this site so much, I’ve decided to get the DVD series as well. I’d like to hit the ground running when I get back to Germany, so I’ll have to order some tools before I get there.
From what I’ve read, there is some “carving” that is done pretty early in the series. I have some basic tools (planes, chisels, saws), but nothing too elaborate. I do have the majority of the things used in the first online project (minus the router and plow planes). Being in Bamberg, I can’t run down to Woodcraft to pick up a tool. Can one of you post what I might need so I can get it shipped out from the US? I’d certainly appreciate it!

Try this John ……………http://paulsellers.com/2011/12/my-essential-tools/
these are good sources for woodworking tools in Germany and they both have an english online shop:
http://www.fine-tools.com (my favourite shop – here I “found” Paul Sellers and can deeply recommend that shop. They are woodworkers themselves so they’re not only selling products. In 9/10 I get my orders the next morning if I place it before 2 pm. I don’t get provision for recommending them ;-))
http://www.mehr-als-werkzeug.de/category/Werkzeuge-2526_3871.htm?lang=en (I know happy woodworkers buying there – I can’t tell about the service quality because I try to buy everything (new) I need from the shop I named in first place.)
I enjoy working wood in Germany.
Hey John, first off thanks for serving over there, safe returns to Germany. I have Paul’s book and it is a really good resource. I am thinking the carving you are speaking of might be for the spoon project??? (I am at work and going from memory) One gouge is really all that is needed for that. Ken’s link to Paul’s tool list seems to be a very good start for you…..John25 January 2013 at 6:23 pm #6963
