I would like to buy my boyfriend some new tools to use for some projects he is doing for ME! He wants to try building some furniture (he can do it) but I think he probably needs some new tools. He has a mitar board, skill saw and most other drills, etc. Suggestions for a specific tool/ accessory for new projects that would be handy? His b-day is coming up! Thanks

Is this his B-Day or yours? I forgot. They sell clamps which attach to a pipe so he can make it whatever length he wants it. These might be more of a stocking stuffer than a birthday gift. He might need a belt sander to make everything nice and smooth. A yearlong subscription to a Beer of the Month club. Which is about how long it will take him to finish the furniture. Waht type of furniture is he making you?

Anyone can repost if they think any of these are crazy ideas. I've never built furniture before!
