A good drill is key. It's silly to stick to one brand (many people have the bs brand loyalty fetish and I'm not sure why). You'll also want to get a variety of drill bits to go with drill. Go to garage sales and start hoarding nails, screws, etc at cheap prices.

My recommendations below are based on at least 5 hours of research and shopping around. There are some things I'd probably add to the list (like a hand saw and dremel) but this takes care of a lot of your big needs. I own everything on the list and am pleased with it all, especially in terms of a performance for value ratio.

The key is know what you want then shop around / wait for the best prices (track prices in spreadsheet). Use google shopping to compare prices and see who price matches plus has best ebates or Ibotta cash back % + consider buying gift cards at a discount on Raise or elsewhere to further maximize savings (or just go with whatever credit card gets best points on particular site). Add Google Chrome app "Honey" to have coupon codes auto applied (eliminates time searching for them).

Also, I'd strongly consider getting a credit card with a decent bonus that will essentially help you get these items for free (assuming you can achieve the bonus spend with money you're already paying on existing bills / monthly purchases - it's a no-brainer in this case) - Chase's Sapphire Preferred is a good place to start ($500 bonus for 4K spend in 3 months)

Consider waiting until Black Friday (and from Jan to end of feb) for the good deals.

Drill (get a decent to really good one - you'll use it often)

Thanks! :D

The wax is a nice finish so far. I was messing around with some wood I found last night and dinged the wax finish with a saw. A glob of wax and about 45 seconds and the ding was gone! I'm sure if I actually hit the wood it would be a little harder to fix, but none-the-less I think wax is a good way to go.

I've used wax for lots of other projects too. It's a nice, non-coloring protector and water resisting barrier. Greta for indoors. I never tested it outside, but probably not as good outside.

The way I put the wax on is very similar to a car: first smooth the wood down to about 150 grit sand paper. Then throw a bunch of wax on and rub it into the cracks and crevices, any big voids you can just throw a big glob on the them and rub them down a bit. wait about 20 to 30 minutes for the wax to set. Then I attach a shop rag (yeah, the ol' red rags) to my orbital sander and buff away to a semi-shine. Repeating the process gets more shine.

You can also lightly heat the wood with a heat gun after you've rubbed wax on but before it's dry to open the wood pores and let the wax really penetrate the wood. I've only done this once (not on my workbench) and I was nervous of it causing the glue to fail and boards to separate - it didn't though. But always test it out first before you go and take reddit advice!

At school, I use a Dewalt Random Orbital Variable Speed and have one at home. Love em both. I also use, at school, a 1/4 sheet Porter Cable and really like it, too. Plan on getting a Dewalt 1/4 for my home shop. I like the 1/4 sheet sander with 150-180 paper. I never use anything higher on bare wood, so...

As for going with Dewalt, well, I can't afford Festool and really, I can see how they are that much better. Regardless of how good your dust collection is, you are still going to get dust.
