DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

Fine Woodworking Tools. For beginners, hand tools are the suggested instruments to use when pursuing the art for the first time. Hand tools are necessary so that you will learn the intricacies of the craft and develop the skills for this art even if they will take time. After you have developed the necessary skills of fine woodworking, you can now opt to use power tools that can perhaps increase your efficiency as well as your speed. Power tools are also not advisable for beginners' use because it is rather very costly.
Your Own Space. When you want to practice and do fine woodworking, you need to have your own space where you can work. You have to make sure that the location that you choose will allow you to work without hindrance. It is also necessary to make sure that your work space is safe as well as well lit for your own convenience.
Make A Plan. Making a plan is always necessary before starting any woodworking project. This plan will then serve as your woodworking guide that can help you work smoothly and quickly. You also need to make your plan detailed which will then include the structure as well as the necessary designs that you would like to incorporate on your finished product. With any woodworking plan be sure to list all tools and the materials that you are going to need.
Organizing Woodworking Tools. It is always necessary to learn how to organize your tools before starting any woodworking project. Likewise, you also need to learn how to take accurate measurements so that the process of making a project will become easier and quicker for both beginners and experts.
Safe Working Atmosphere. In woodworking, safety must always be a concern. You have to wear the right safety gear before you start working. You have to wear the right protective gear especially on your eyes, ears and hands. It is also necessary to consider getting fine woodworking tools that are safe rather than comprising tool safety for a cheaper price.
