  1. It was suggest to me to never lay a hand plane face down. That is true.
    However i found a hand plane turned on it’s side on a work bench and be
    dangerous. It leaves the opportunity to cut yourself if the blade is facing
    you. Or for the blade to be nicked by other tools bumping into it. On a
    wooden bench, i leave the blade down. Any other surface, such as a driveway
    (when i work on a job site) I turn the blade to the side.

  2. The most ridiculous top 10 of beginner tools ever sorry.

  3. +Simon Wilkinson all this ten are essentials for who to start a fine
    quality woodworking business, like making a chair, cabinets, etc. When Chad
    suggest a chisels, it mean he suggest a hammer too. All dumb woodworkers
    know, they should have a basic tools like hand saw to cut a wood, glue or
    nails and hammer to joints, and sandpaper for finishing. But, when we need
    start a business, with great quality results, and efficient work, I agree
    that Chad list are essentials, most useful, and worth to have for
    continuity of woodworking business.

  4. if you listen and watch the video it states for begginers the list is no
    good for a beginner

  5. +Chad Stanton …………..

  6. sounds more like efficiency than laziness Nice video,,,

  7. you forgot PENCIL smartass

  8. Shinto rasp, I gotta have one now!!!! Thank you sir.

  9. Dr. Death (Dr. Death)

    +MrMeanderthal That would be Mr. Smartass lol

  10. “Coumpound” miter saw. Got it. :)

  11. I really like the creative approach to your videos, expands the interest of
    an new media artist ( my self) thanks for the awesome videos

  12. Thank you for the kind words. Although many others do not agree with my
    comedy. Just read the comments below. Thanks for watching and unfortunately
    no one is going to change who i am. 🙂

  13. Spam the 8 key over and over for a good laugh…

  14. always just stick the end on a pencil or scrap bit of wood. keeps the blade
    off the table and is very safe

  15. An impact driver doesn’t work like a jackhammer, a hammer drill does. An
    impact driver hits on the rotational (may not be the right word) while the
    hammer drill hits on the inandoutinal.. lol

  16. I don’t have an impact driver but other than that I have all the tool that
    you mentioned. I probably use my miter saw and drill the most. I would also
    mention a good router. for me it is s must have in my small shop.

  17. Should probably remake this video and turn the F’n mic on this time….Or
    how about let the guy drinking do it,he at least remembered to turn his mic
    on…….who says drunks can’t do a job better than someone else??? LOL

  18. that is quite right.. but i guess it would be better if it is kept in a
    small wooden stand made for it..

  19. eres de Mérida balam soto

  20. you should stop attempting being funny and put more care in to your videos
    because new people to wood working wouldnt get all this. also turn the mic
    on worst top 10 ever

  21. Clamps!

  22. The most used tool in every shop was not mentioned. A pencil.

  23. no smoking

  24. Josue I. Brambila (Choche)

    yeah!!! top 12

  25. In your list, there are a couple of more important woodshop tools to
    purchase before you should invest in a compound miter saw (you can get by
    with patience, practice, and hand tenon and rip saws for most projects.)
    Though a compound miter saw is a great thing to have in your shop, it’s
    price dictates you should buy necessities first. So… more important than
    that, and a bevel (although every good woodshop should eventually have one)
    should have been clamps and mallets. No point cutting a good joint if you
    can’t knock it into place after glueing, and clamp it securely while
    drying.

    ever cut their finger off on an impact driver
