Each work table should include a variety of chisels. Chisels aren't just for woodcarvers. Any carpenter will need chisels to clean joints and saw cuts. Look for chisels made of high-alloy carbon steel or chrome-vanadium alloy steel.
I think it's important for beginners to see that working wood well by hand has nothing to do with having the best configuration. For a complete guide on choosing stones and sharpening your hand tools, see the “Get Sharp” video series. Many beginners think they stink at carpentry, but they usually only use blunt (or poorly sharpened) hand tools. I still believe that I can beat a planer, at least in its context, but a band saw is what really gains efficiency, because manual sawing is very inefficient.
If you're going to measure a lot of angles, a sliding bezel or T-bezel will be a useful tool. If you plan to use a mechanical fastener, you'll need a brace or a hand drill (and drill bits), a drill, a hammer, and a pair of screwdrivers (or a screwdriver with interchangeable tips). It was a humble collection of tattered second-hand items, but there was a tool for every job and most of it worked great. This book is intended to be an important link that will help you make good decisions when it comes to buying tools.
These sharpening media will last for years and can sharpen any carpentry tool as expected. I highly recommend tearing hand saws as a hand tool for beginners in carpentry because of its multifunctional capabilities. Most clamp sets are inexpensive and work like a third hand when holding boards together, especially when drilling or screwing. We love power tools, but often a hand tool does the job better and faster and always with less noise and dust.
In very hard or very figured woods, higher effective cutting angles (the combination of the tool's angle of inclination with the sharp bevel of the blade) work better than lower angles. Thanks to its shock-absorbing capacity, the mallet is a perfect hand tool for woodworking to thread wood joints with minimal impact marks. If you're a beginner in carpentry, hand files are great tools for learning many carpentry techniques.
