Women like to buy shoes and clothes and other makeup crap that they never wear. I like to buy tools I don't need.

I think before I say I buy tools I don't need, there need's to be a definition of "need". Anyone with a sickness needs their medication!

What hand tools do I need?

I take my medications just in the form of old iron. I just don't take pills. Buying tools is probably cheaper anyway.

CCK: my apologies for setting off these wood butchers and derailing your thread.

When it came time to start to build stuff, those stupid little blister packs of screws, dowel pegs and so on are NOT cost effective. I use half a dozen lengths of #8 Robertson screws, never less than 250 at a time.

Did a lot of aluminum sheet work, did a little math. Boxes of 500 pop-rivets are the answer.

Get some jars/plastic cans and buy nails by the pound or more.

I hope that you enjoy the hand work. There's peace in the shop.
