The Essential Joinery Tools to Get the Job Done

It’s a familiar maxim that a poor tradesman blames his tools, but if the tools simply aren’t up to the job even the handiest craftsman is likely to come unstuck.

Consequently, a budding joinery genius really can’t live without some of the essential tools below ...


Perhaps we’re biased, but to get the job done properly, you need a top quality adhesive in your corner, especially in the joinery industry.

Thanks to our wide range of products, you can trust us to provide you with the adhesive you need, regardless of the size or complexity of the job.


Gone are the days of craftsmen toiling as they sand their creations by hand.

Instead, an electric multi-sander is the weapon of choice for the busy carpenter, offering a range of attachments to help complete the toughest of tasks in no time.

To make sure you’re not weighed down when hopping from job to job, however, grab yourself something lightweight, which won’t break the bank in the process.

Table Saw

While your joinery skills are undoubtedly beyond reproach, you’ll likely need a table saw for some of those cuts that require machine-like precision.

For best results, choose a table saw with all the right features, such as the ability to hold larger pieces of wood, along with a tray for catching wood trimmings to cut down on workshop mess.

Nail Gun

Aside from a hammer, nails and a saw, a nail gun should probably be top of a joiner’s shopping list – but what should you be looking for?

Quite simply, you want something with a non-mark tip to avoid damaging your materials.

Additionally, opt for something with a strong voltage – 18v is probably best – to avoid having to do the same job twice.
