Once a year the woodworking tool manufacturers roll out their newest and brightest offerings for the press and the public. This year’s showcase event was the Association of Woodworking and Furnishings Suppliers’ (AWFS) show in Las Vegas.
We had the chance to look at some great tools and machinery, and even kick the tires on a few of them. Unfortunately not all of these tools and accessories are ready for market yet, so we (and you) will have to wait a little longer to find out how they perform in a shop.
In fact, sometimes a tool will briefly pop up its head at one of these shows and then disappear to be redesigned, so if all these tools aren’t available by the end of the year, that’s sometimes the reason why.

Here are some supplies and tools we find essential in our everyday work around the shop. We may receive a commission from sales referred by our links; however, we have carefully selected these products for their usefulness and quality.
