Woodworking: Handheld Power Tools

Many woodworking projects can be done with handheld power tools. In this training, we’ll go over the basics of how to use three handheld woodworking power tools: a handheld router, a Sawzall, and a circular saw. Sawzalls and circular saws can help you cut larger pieces of wood into more managable sizes, and a handheld router can help you carve into pieces of wood or follow an existing cut.
