“You can never have enough tools, any job is easy if you have the right tool” – Jean Nel


A word from Jean

It didn’t take long after starting my professional career as an electrician to realize tools are my bread and butter. As a result, I’ve spent a great deal of time considering what makes a great tool. From manufacturer to features I’ve used and considered them all.
I always tell people a tradesman is only as good as his tools but the key when buying tools are to know if the tool can do what you want it to do.

In my private capacity, I spend my time and used these tools for doing steel work, automotive work, home improvements, building and also irrigation. But my favorite and most rewarding pastime will always be woodworking. Each faction requiring it’s own specialized set of tools.
Armed with the right tool and the right approach any project has the potential to be a success.
Here, I will be sharing the methods I used when I took up woodworking and showing you, you don’t need high-end equipment to produce a high-end product.

Happy woodworking.
