I mix a lot of epoxy in small batches, but I’ve seldom had the right size container on hand. I solved this problem by drilling 1-1/2-in. holes in 2×4 scraps with a Forstner bit. The resulting shallow “cups” allow easy mixing without the risk of spilling. When the holes are used up, I just make a new mixing board. — Bill Wells. Save your takeout utensils to use in the shop!
Hard to determine which stain you need in that bespattered collection of cans? An easy-to-make “stain index,” courtesy of reader Bob Jacek, solves the problem. Section off boards of your favorite woods into squares with masking tape, and apply the different stains across the width of each wood type (pine, oak, birch, etc.). When the stains are dry, brush on lengthwise your regular finishes—polyurethane, water-based polyurethane, oil, orange shellac, etc. You’ll be able to tell how each stain looks with each finish. Label each one. Use both sides of each board, and you’ll have a wooden encyclopedia of stain and finish combinations. Plus: How to stain wood evenly.
Aunque existen tiendas de tableros online, suelen ser bastante caras debido al peso y volumen del envío. Por eso es mejor comprarlo en grandes superficies o carpinterias cercanas. Para consultar precios de tableros, mira un listín telefónico o busca la información de contacto en internet de varias carpinterías cercanas a tu ubicación. Pregunta en varias de ellas para saber cuál te ofrece mejor precio, o incluso si te pueden acercar el material a casa. A veces si vives cerca de una zona habitual de reparto no es un problema para ellos.
Simply soak a washcloth in water and ring it out a bit so it’s not sopping wet. Put the damp washcloth on the affected area. The water will wick through the wood, and that’s fine. Now, with your iron on its highest setting, place it on the damp washcloth over the affected area, and make small movements back and forth and in circles. Press down firmly and continue until your wash cloth is dry. It won’t take long to evaporate. At this point, the wood fibers are absorbing the water and should expand back to where they were originally. Continue this process and repeat by adding more water until the dents rise up to be flush with the rest of the material.
El colmo de los colmos, reciclar algo que ya habías reciclado antes ¿hiper reciclaje? si, puede ser... En Madrid esta caja fue mi mesita de noche, podéis verla el post que hice sobre mi cabecero de Cds reciclados, pero al hacer la mudanza no le encontraba un sitio definitivo así que decidí transformarla en una camita para el gato. La cosa es muy fácil, simplemente compré cuatro ruedas rojas para ...
Popular and easy to work with, cherry is in high demand for its reddish-brown color and ease of staining and finishing. Cherry likely won’t be at the local home center, but should be at a lumberyard for a somewhat expensive price.[12] This hardwood is a very common material for furniture, and is resistant to normal wear-and-tear, but it is best for indoor pieces.[13] https://youtu.be/hjMt4dDm41g
