Woodworking machine

A Woodworking machine is a machine that is intended to process wood. These machines are usually powered by electric motors and are used extensively in woodworking. Sometimes grinding machines (for grinding woodworking tools) are also considered a part of woodworking machinery.

Types of woodworking machinery

Artisanal and hobby machines

These machines are used both in small-scale commercial production of timber products and by hobbyists. Most of these machines may be used on solid timber and on composite products. Machines can be divided into the bigger stationary machines where the machine remains stationary while the material is moved over the machine, and hand-held power tools, where the tool is moved over the material.

Hand-held power tools

* Biscuit joiner
* Domino jointer
* Chain saw
* Hand-held Circular saw
* Electric drill
* Jig saw
* Miter saw
* Nail gun
* Hand-held electric plane
* Reciprocating saw
* Rotary tool
* Router
* Hand-held Sanders, including belt sander, orbital sander, random orbit sander

tationary machines

* Spindle moulder (Wood shaper)
* Stationary sanders, including stroke sanders, oscillating spindle sander, belt sander, disc sander (and combination disc-belt sander).
* Table saw
* Tenoner or tenoning machine
* Thicknesser or Thickness planer
* Round pole milling machine
* Round pole sanding machine
