Most readers assume that we are awash in tools here at Popular Woodworking, but that’s not quite right. In actuality, we are obscenely awash in tools.

I just walked though our shop and counted 15 cordless drills scattered on the four active workbenches – and we’re not even running a cordless drill test right now. You name it, we probably have one, or have seen one, or have worked with one recently.

Though this might sound like heaven to you, we all worry sometimes that it colors our view of the craft. Because we have many specialized tools, we end up using them in the projects we build and showing them in our step photos and extolling their virtues.
