Looking to get into woodworking a bit, mainly just to make toys for our one year old, tiny bookshelves, pushing carts etc. Planning to go with plywood and just cut out things in the back garden as I've got no actual workshop. Got tons of measuring tools for metal working, drill bits for metal / wood, clamps, squares, micrometers, calipers etc but missing some of the heavier duty machinery like circular saws, routers etc. Got a jigsaw, but it probably doesn't work that well for straight cuts. Also got a rotary sander which works wonders for flat surfaces, a small hand plane for chamfers and deburring and a simple manual saw. Any recommendations for what might be useful? I guess I could work with what I have but I reckon a circular saw will speed things up for sure. Is a jigsaw any good in ply? It's shit in MDF for sure as the blade just walks side ways and flexes. First two projects are: A small book shelf like this: https://www.amazon.ca/GX-XD-Kindergarten-Bookshelf-Magazine-B/dp/B07B49PMYD And fixing the sides of a small toy piano which has curved cuts and pockets (router needed).
