Go to the How-To section of this web site. (See buttons above) Click on the garage/workshop section of the interactive house. Notice at the right side of the screen you will see a list. Click on the workshop tools. You can find out just about anything you want about a wood working shop in this area including tools to start with and what you can add later.
