Woodworking tools are very apparent within the woodworking industry, however, there is now a plethora of different woodworking machines that are available to purchase that enhance the efficiency of the job. These machines come in two types, handheld power tools, and stationery and machines.

Handheld power tools:

  1. Electric drill: This is a machine that holds different drills and bits to drill holes and screws into walls. They have a handle used to grip it with a motor enclosed inside. Some drills come with a power cord whilst others don’t, as well as having the option to change the speed accordingly.
  1. Jig saw: This is used to cut irregular shapes from a workpiece. It has an electric motor with a reciprocating blade and a flat guide that slides over the surface, allowing you to cut the workpiece however you want.
  1. Handheld electric plane: This tool smooths the surface you are working with. This also has a soleplate that it rides. This is powered by an electric motor, which also allows you to adjust the depth of the cut.
  1. Nail gun: As the name suggests, this allows you to drive nails into wood and some other materials. This serves the purpose of a much more efficient hammer, which may be powered by compressed air, gas powered, spring loaded etc.
  1. Handheld sander: These machines can come as belt sanders, orbital sanders, and random orbit sander fixed machines. This smoothens out the surface of your workpiece using sandpaper. The disk is powered which allows it to rotate at extremely high speeds. The sandpaper can be changed out to differentiate the roughness, ultimately changing the finish to the surface.
  1. Router: This allows you to hollow out sections in wood and some other materials. This operates with a circular blade similar to that of a sander.

Stationary machines:

  1. Table saw: The circular blade props up through the surface, which enables the workpiece to slide along the surface and get cut. The height of the blade can be adjusted, which is good as it allows for a variety of sizes of wood to be cut.
  1. Wood lathe: This allows us to shape wood. The workpiece can be held in place whilst the chuck rotates, allowing you to shape it by using a chisel and holding it over the spinning surface.


  1. Jointer: This is a really simple one. We use this to flatten out the surface of the workpiece.
  1. Bandsaw: The blade comes in the form of a band that passes vertically through a slot in the workbench. The workpiece slides parallel to the blade in order to get cut

To conclude, you should now have a vague idea of how these machines work. Some further research should be undergone so that you have a good understanding of what to do, as many machines tend to be very specific to their jobs.
