When talking about the best woodworking tools, a corded drill should always be given importance, because it is more powerful and versatile. The cordless is more portable, but corded drills can be comparatively less expensive and can be more useful than a cordless drill. You have a couple of options when you are choosing a corded power drill like, for example, whether you want a 3/8-inch or 1/2-inch chuck, straight drill or hammer drill, key or keyless chuck etc.
The third best woodworking tool for beginners is the Jigsaw. It allows you to cut circular and curved patterns in stock. A band saw can be more accurate and can cut a thicker stock, but for beginners, the jigsaw (also known as the Sabre Saw) can be very effective. If versatility is what you want to go for, you need to opt for an orbital-action, corded jigsaw that fits your hand. Most of these have easy blade changing systems.
