Woodworking is a beautiful hobby and art, that can even turn into a lucrative profession. It has also quite low entry cost, at least comparing to hobbys like collecting retro cars or real estate flipping – provided you know where to look for inexpensive tools and supplies. And what place can be better than Aliexpress, a popular online platform to buy straight from China. Aliexpress orders might not be delivered promptly (typically they take a 3-4 weeks to deliver), but this wait time is definitely worth the free shipping that we get and top prices that are hard to beat. Here are some of the most popular Aliexpress woodworking tools available with free delivery and top rankings.
