    If you get into proper carpentry with joints, you could do worse than investing in a router and table.

    And get a wood lathe. They're fun.

    No matter how many tools you buy, you will still find something that you don't have, or still want.

    There is no such thing as enough tools, there is no such thing as too many tools. That is the way of things.

    Yes, it is true. The list could go on and on like Ariston - wonder what happened to that ad?

    Handy to have various sized round sticks to wrap sandpaper around for smoothing out drilled holes.

    Liked the comment about sharpening tools. An essential.

    Good look Adamski and I hope you enjoy every moment. Nothing like being proud of a piece of work you have made yourself.

    Oh...keep a lookout for Aldi steel corner angle braces. Can come in very handy.

    I have a set of tapered drill bits that have a countersink cutter on them. Excellent for screw holes

    Like this, but I bought a set of 4 or 5 & they were cheaper:

    For that you'll need a properly huge compressor, the sort that's towable, and some very good protective gear unless you want to knackered lungs to your list of ailments. A mate has lost a lot of movement in his knee because he tripped while blasting. The leather apron didn't even slow the grit down. Debridement was fun I gather.

    You might want to get someone in.

    Have a look through Paul Sellers videos on YouTube. His earlier stuff is excellent.

    First thing you need is a good bench with a vice.
