Wood working equipment is used to mould a piece of wood into the desired shape. Some of the common wood working equipment include biscuit joiner, sliding table saw, drill, nail gun and wood router,pvc vacuum membrane machine,edge banding machine,wood lathe etc. Some of the hand held power tools are as follows:
Wood working machine: This machine is mainly used to process wood. These machines are extensively used in woodworking and are powered with the help of electric motors
Biscuit joiner: A biscuit joiner also referred as plate joiner is commonly used for joining 2 pieces of wood. It has a 100mm diameter circular saw blade that is used for cutting a semi-circular shaped hole in wood composite panels.
Sliding table saw: This wood working tool is a portable, motorized, mechanical saw. It is very useful in logging activities that include felling, bucking and limbing. Felling of trees becomes a easier job using this chainsaw. It is commonly used in removing branches and foliage that are causing obstruction. Chainsaws are often used to harvest firewood and to fell snags. So if you want to cut wood for building structures then you should use chainsaws.

Nail gun: If you want to insert nails into wood then the best way to do it is by using a nail gun. The nails are driven by electromagnetism, highly flammable gases that include propane or butane, and by compressed air. Previously hammers were used to insert nails into wood. By using hammers you may injure your fingers. That is why instead of hammers many carpenters are using nail guns. It has become a popular tool amongst carpenters and builders
Wood Router: It is used to hollow out (route out) an area from a large piece of wood. This working tool is now replaced by modern spindle tool. This is an electric hand
router that performs the same job and is commonly used for moulding of timber. It is also used to cut grooves, for edge moulding and to cut some joints.
PVC Vacuum membrane machine: It has also been used in some non-wood applications where heat and pressure, along with the ability to form to a contour, have made it a perfect solution for laminating.Kitchen & Bath door and drawer fronts Closet & Garage door and drawer fronts Store Fixture and Display components Office and Hospitality Furniture Healthcare and Architectural components Any application where paint can be replaced by 3DL

Various Tools Used For Wood Working
Woodworking is a laborious job; this is because the activities as processing wood, cutting, fitting, etc, are involved in wood working. Therefore it is important to use right wood working tools which help to reduce the required labor and make wood working much more convenient.
The wood working tools are simple wood working supplies as hammer, saw, etc, which are small and operated manually. However, apart from wood working tools wood working machines also are available for facilitating your projects.
The difference between wood working machines and wood working tools is that wood working tools are simple, small, and cheap. As they are small, they are usually portable and have to be operated by holding them in hands. They are used for simple wood working operations jobs as cutting, fitting different pieces of wood in order to make any type of wood work piece. On the other hand, the wood working machines are large and are usually costly. They are used for the activities as processing of wood and even creating new wooden artistic objects.
There are several wood working tools used these days. The most commonly used among them is a saw. There are different types of saws such as Japanese saws, dovetail saws, cross cut saws, Tenon saws, bow saws, chain saws, etc. They are used for cutting. However, before cutting the wood, it is to be marked with wood working tools such as markers and majoring tools.
The tools as measuring tapes, squares, rules, etc are required for measuring and the wood working tools as marking gauges, knives awls, play a very crucial part in marking marks before cutting. Marking is very crucial part of woodworking. This is where the skills of the wood workers come into picture.
Then the third most common wood working tools are hammers. The hammers are required to fix nails with which the different pieces of wood are fixed together to make the work piece. Apart from nails, screws also are commonly used for fixing the different parts of the work piece. For using screws, we first need to drill holes in the wood. The drilling machines are the tools for this purpose.
Then the next important categories of woodworking tools cutters are the chisels, scrappers and carving tools. They are required for a number of small activities involved in wood working.
The finishing of the wood work pieces also is an important part of wood working. There are some wood working tools used for finishing also. The wood planes are used for smoothening and regularizing the surface. Scrappers and polishers as sandpapers, steel wool and other abrasives also are useful for smoothening of the surface.
For additional support for fixing the different parts, the work piece together wax or adhesives are applied along with the nails and screws. The work piece is also generally colored of polished with varnishes, colors etc. therefore the wood working tools as brushes, or sprayers also are required.
These are only among some of the common wood working tools that every wood worker should have. All the above-mentioned tools are cheap and therefore even the non-commercial wood worker too may have them in his collection of wood working tools.
