One of the best aspects of woodworking is transforming plain pieces of lumber into art by creating designs right into the wood. Ryobi’s 18V ONE+ Jig Saw will allow you to easily make these carvings, whether simple or ornate. Because it’s cordless, it’s a lot easier to handle and work at the best possible angles you need when cutting shapes into wood. Plus, the tool’s motor is built to vibrate less, which increases control, and is capable of 3,000 strokes per minute for precise cuts. If you need less power than that, the saw is also equipped with a variable-speed trigger.
Other features include four orbital settings, an attached LED worklight, and a blade release that makes blade changes quick and straightforward. The saw can be bundled with a kit that includes a 1.5 Ah battery, 18V charger, non-marring shoe, hex wrench, and a T-shank wood cutting blade. You’ll likely want other blades as well, and considering how small and cheap they are, it’s a shame they’re not included in the kit as well. The 18V ONE+ Jig Saw Kit costs around $99 and is available from Amazon and Home Depot.
