Just about every carpentry project will require a level. Walls need to be built vertically plumb, countertops, stairway steps and shelves must be exactly level, and roofs need to be pitched at a consistent inclination. I’d recommend you have at least two carpenters levels in your workshop; a 2 foot level to use for checking joists, studs and similar longer construction elements, as well as a 8 inch long torpedo level. These are easy to carry in a tool belt and handy for checking detail woodworking. A mason’s level, at four feeet long or more, is useful for framing and stonework.
