Biscuit joiner: A biscuit joiner also referred to as plate joiner is commonly used for joining 2 pieces of wood. It has a 100mm diameter circular saw blade that is used for cutting a semi-circular-shaped hole in wood composite panels.

Chainsaw: This woodworking tool is a portable, motorized, mechanical saw. It is very useful in logging activities that include felling, bucking, and limbing. Felling of trees becomes an easier job using this chainsaw. It is commonly used in removing branches and foliage that are causing an obstruction. Chainsaws are often used to harvest firewood and to fell snags. So if you want to cut wood for building structures then you should use chainsaws.

Drill: If you want to make holes in wooden pieces then you can take the help of a driller. Drillers are frequently used in metalworking, woodworking, and construction sites. Types of drills include cordless drills and rotary hammer drills.

Jigsaw: It is a working tool that is extremely useful to cut arbitrary curves that include stenciled designs into a small piece of wood. The tool kit of most carpenters contains a jigsaw. If you require fine cutting then you must use a jigsaw.

Nail gun: If you want to insert nails into the wood then the best way to do it is by using a nail gun. The nails are driven by electromagnetism, highly flammable gases that include propane or butane, and by compressed air. Previously hammers were used to insert nails into wood. By using hammers you may injure your fingers. That is why instead of hammers many carpenters are using nail guns. It has become a popular tool amongst carpenters and builders

Wood Router: It is used to hollow out (route out) an area from a large piece of wood. This working tool is now replaced by a modern spindle tool. This is an electric hand
router that performs the same job and is commonly used for molding timber. It is also used to cut grooves, for edge moulding and to cut some joints.

Sander: It is a powerful working tool that is used to give a smooth finish to the wood. These sanders are often powered by electric motors.

Rotary tool: This tool is extremely useful as it is a multipurpose power tool. It has many rotating accessory bits that can be effectively used to cut, carve, polish, etc. Rotary tool has low torque; hence it is safe for freehand use.

All these woodworking equipment will help in giving an attractive look to your furniture.
