Reply To: tools etc.
There is a nice list of recommended tools on p. 17 of the instruction manual. The list is similar to those of other stitch and glue projects. Many are common tools (drill, 1/16″ bits, screwdrivers, wrenches, pliers, wire cutters, scissors, utility knife, sander (e.g., 4″ random orbital), safety equipment (respirator/dust mask, safety glasses), some are less common such as Japanese pull saw (not essential, but useful), block plane (extremely useful) and one or more wood rasps. You will also need some consumables such as disposable gloves, sand paper, foam brushes, chip brushes, low nap foam rollers, plastic spreaders… Hopefully, you have access to the manual and can take a look at the list provided.
