As the name suggests, a woodworking machine is designed and manufactured to process, shape, cut, and craft wooden stock – for a wide range of purposes.

So, no matter if you are a new woodworker or a returning pro, chances are there will be a selection of woodworking machines that will prove themselves invaluable to you.

But why are woodworking machines so essential, which do you need, and is there a particular brand you should consider?

Read on to find out for yourself, once and for all.

Why are woodworking machines essential?

Put most simply, woodworking machines tend to be powered by electric motors and cut down labour – making crafting or professional jobs alike easier on the craftsperson and much more efficient.

They can also make projects safer, as the blade or grinder can be stationary or only able to be moved in a few directions, limiting the chance of injury if used properly and with thorough training.

Without woodworking machines, much of the preparation and manufacturing stage of woodwork would become exceptionally labour intensive, repetitive, and slow. This would no doubt affect the enjoyment of crafting and hobbying while also making professional woodworking inordinately expensive.

These factors, and the rise of affordable woodworking machines, have now meant that more people than ever are willing to invest in good-quality but economical woodworking machines.

What woodworking machines do you need?

Woodworking machines come in two varieties, hand-held or stationary machines.

But what is the difference?

Hand-held machines are tools that are moved over the wood stock – like a jig or mitre saw, belt sanders, or router. A stationary machine remains still while the stock is moved – examples include a bandsaw, planer or timber sizer, scroll saw, or spindle moulder.

Most workshops will need a mix of hand-held and stationary machines, but exactly what you need depends on the work you do.

The most common woodworking machines and equipment for a standard workshop includes:

  • Hand saws
  • Power saws
  • Planes
  • Sanders
  • Files
  • Hammer
  • Mallet
  • Drill
  • Screw gun
  • Tape measure
  • Square
  • Sawhorses
  • Workbenches
