Hi . This year I am building my first bass. The only experience I have working with wood is the shelves that I have built at home. I don't remember building any complicating thing, I know how to measure and I have a good idea what the tools supposed to do . My granddad was a carpenter so if I know something is because all the hours I spent at his workshop asking questions and see him working. I am building this bass as a tribute to him. So far I have been doing my homework, reading a lot of threads here and watching several videos in youtube. I decided to build the bass from scratch , I am planning to build something ''simple'': Jazz bass. I already order the wood: a) Swamp Ash blank for the body from Woodwell. b) Flame maple blank for the neck, from exoticwoods c) Rosewood fretboard blank from The tools I currently have: Handsaw, cordless hand drill, sig saw, hand sander, digital Caliper, files and some clamps. As I understand, building a bass with these tools will be almost impossible so I need to add some other tools to my arsenal. I came with some ideas but I am not sure if they are ok. I don't know anything about brands, which are good and which one I should stay away from, here is where I need your help. My budget for the following tools is $ 500-700. What you think ? Are they ok or should I look some thing else, Any other tool that I must buy? Band Saw: Ryobi 2.5 Amp, dept / height of cut 3.5, Router : Ryobi Router Table with 1.5 Peak HP Router Press Drill: WEN 8 in. Drill Press with Laser Bits: size?? Thanks for your help.
