    There are some other tools that I find useful for working on recycled wood projects:

    A table saw or a hand-held circular saw with a rip guide is useful for ripping longer pieces to a different width.

    A hand-held router with a round-off or chamfer bit is great for finishing the edges of the wood pieces. You can smooth the edges with a sander instead, but I think the finished pieces look more professional with the routed edges.

    A Kreg pocket screw jig is great for easily making strong joints and keeping the fasteners hidden. Alternatively, a doweling jig or biscuit cutter could be used if that is what you are comfortable with.
