We all want to have a shop full of tools. It gives us peace of mind knowing we can walk into our shop and be able to do any project that we want because we have what we need.
If you are new to woodworking, you might be amazed (or annoyed) by all the tools that are available. There is so many "experts" who say you need to buy this or buy that. Some say you need a large selection before even beginning your first project. It is in my humble opinion that you can do a whole lot of woodworking with just three power tools.

Metallurgy Demystified: A Buyer's Guide to Tools
Without adequate information, the unsuspecting woodworker must rely upon the promotional "facts" that manufacturers use to sell their products. The truth about the composition of a tool is not always clearly stated. For example, high-speed steel often has the same amount of carbon as high-carbon steel. And high-speed steels often contain molybdenum or tungsten as their principal alloying element, the same ingredient used in carbide tools.
