Set the table saw fence so the blade is centered on the seam, then push the whole thing through the saw. If the board edges are quite bowed or curvy, you may need a second pass. If so, unscrew the cleats, reclamp the boards across the middle center, then screw on the cleats again. The screws ding up the ends of the boards a little, so cut the boards you’re jointing a bit long, then trim 1/2 in. from each end to remove the screw holes.

I know this seems really simple and you may already know how to read a tape measure so just hear me out on this one! Often times with woodworking you need to make exact measurements and cuts and it’s rarely pretty even numbers like 15 inches or 15 1/2 inches. It’s usually like 15 5/8 inches or 15 9/16 inches. So, really knowing how to read a tape measure in its entirety is important. And I’ve created a quick post on how to read a tape measure the easy way along with a helpful free printable.

With two varieties, red and white, oak is known to be easy to work with and relatively strong. However, furniture makers often opt for white oak over red oak for its attractive figure and moisture-resistance.[12] Depending on the kind needed, oak can probably be found at a local home center or a lumberyard for a bit pricier than other hardwoods.[12][13]
¿Qué te parece? ¿No crees que es un buen diseño? Cumple con su función principal, es movible y además bonita. Como es un modelo aparentemente simple su belleza dependerá mucho de los materiales que tengas a tu disposición. Es verdad que en Norte América la oferta de materiales es mayor, pero yo creo que aquí somos tan manitas que también conseguimos muy buenos resultados.
Sumando todo lo anterior llegué a un momento de mi vida en el que tenía los conocimientos necesarios para hacer mis propios diseños asistidos por ordenador, sabía usar herramientas Cnc y necesitaba herramientas personalizadas para mi trabajo de luthier. Después de automatizar varios procesos para la construcción de guitarras y hacer varias herramientas, como por ejemplo una Cnc casera, un buen día me decidí a fabricar mi propia sierra de mesa para mejorar el equipamiento de mi pequeño taller. Las que encontraba en el mercado o bien no se ajustaban a mis necesidades de equipamiento y espacio o bien eran demasiado caras. Ten en cuenta que por esa época trabajaba en una habitación/taller de tan solo 15 metros cuadrados que puedes ver en este artículo, por lo que debía optimizar el espacio todo lo posible.

If your carpentry plans also include building materials, you don't need to look any further than The Home Depot. From wood and lumber to decking and fencing materials, it's all right here.

Clamping mitered edges can be a real hassle because they never seems to line up correctly. The easiest way that I’ve found to get around this process is to use painter’s tape as clamps. First set the pieces so that the outer edges are facing up and tape them edge-to-edge. The flip the pieces over so the beveled edges are facing up and glue them together. Complete the process by taping the last two edges together and let sit until completed. The tape removes easily and the glue won’t attach to the tape, making sanding and finishing very simple. Try this tip with this clever project!
While many woods can be used for carving, there are some clear favorites, including Aspen, Basswood, Butternut, Black Walnut, and Oak.[14] Because it has almost no grain and is notably soft, Basswood is particularly popular with beginner carvers. It is used in many lower-cost instruments like guitars and electric basses.[14] Aspen is similarly soft, although slightly harder, and readily available and inexpensive.[14] Butternut has a deeper hue than Basswood and Aspen and has a nice grain that is easy to carve, and thus friendly for beginners. It's also suitable for furniture.[14] While more expensive that Basswood, Aspen, and Butternut, Black Walnut is a popular choice for its rich color and grain.[14] Lastly, Oak is a strong, sturdy, and versatile wood for carving with a defined grain. It's also a popular wood for furniture making.[14]
Si después de leer el post te quedas con la ganas de aprender y crear más, visita mi web donde anuncio periódicamente los talleres y cursos que organizo en mi taller. Los programo por estaciones del año, ahora estamos con los talleres de verano y nos hemos tomado un pequeño descanso pero en otoño volveremos con más y mejor. También tenemos los Talleres Abiertos para que vengas a hacer lo que tú quieras, cuándo tú quieras, si quieres más información mándame un mail: petulaplas@petulaplas.com Los materiales mínimos que necesitaremos son:
There are a few things particleboard is NOT. It’s not medium density fiberboard (MDF)—a material with greater density and weight composed of more uniform particles. It’s NOT oriented strand board (OSB), a material composed of large wood chips and strands that’s structurally equivalent to plywood. It does NOT have great nail or screw holding ability, nor is it all that water resistant; water can quickly cause the material to swell and lose structural integrity. But if you need something flat and cheap for use in a dry place, particleboard will do you proud. Learn how to make a plastic laminate tabletop with a particleboard substrate.

Finally, properly preparing your wood surface is super important. It will make a huge difference when it comes times to stain, paint, or finish your wood. There are a lot of tips for wood surface preparation, but sanding the wood is one of the most important steps. And I find it really helpful to do the bulk of my sanding before I start ripping (cutting) and building with my wood since it’s still in whole pieces. You can check out my simple tips for how to sand wood in my how to stain wood tutorial, which is also good to reference if you need to learn how to stain too!
Si en las carpinteriás no te lo venden, puedes preguntarles a ellos dónde lo compran... existen grandes almacénes solo de venta y que suministran a estas carpinterías. Quizás en ellos consigas un mejor precio. Al pedir precio ten en cuenta que existen varias calidades de tablero. No necesitarás usar el más caro, pero que no te engañen con el precio. Aquí puedes encontrar información al respecto.
Los muebles modulares son excelentes para ordenar espacios pequeños y optimizar cada centímetro cuadrado disponible. El mueble de madera que vemos en la imagen no son solo repisas, su diseño se extiende y adapta al perímetro de la nevera, siendo una pieza elaborada totalmente a la medida y de manera funciona, convirtiéndose además en un objeto decorativo para el ambiente.

Una vez tengas tu propia sierra de mesa, ésta te servirá para realizar el resto de proyectos y herramientas... ten en cuenta que puede variar según tus necesidades o tu forma de trabajar. Por ejemplo, por mi modo de trabajar apenas uso la ingletadora, pero en muchos talleres es una herramienta indispensable. Bajo mi criterio continuaría con la sierra de cinta, el torno/estación de lijado y la fresadora 3D.
Los nichos y espacios muertos bajo la escalera pueden tener una cara completamente distinta con un mueble que se diseñe adaptándose a cada centímetro del área en cuestión. La propuesta de la arquitecto Andrea Stortoni fusiona la escalera con el mueble de madera maciza bajo la escalera utilizado para albergar el televisor, una idea práctica y genial para hacer en casa.
Diseño: los diferentes diseños de Melaminas Vesto permiten dar estilo y personalidad a cada mueble. A través de sus nueva línea Nórdica Contemporánea se puede dar un sello único a través de sus diseños maderados, con vetas, texturas y apariencia natural como la madera, de variedad de tonalidades desde lo rústico hasta un perfecto look escandinavo, o los nuevos unicolores que combinan perfectamente. Así mismo, una forma de entregar mayor valor al mueble es reemplazar el tradicional blanco por alguno de estos nuevos colores que hacen resaltar lo que se guarda en su interior, como los platos.
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.
Often times at first glance a board looks straight and the fact that it is actually bowed or has some warping isn’t always obvious. So the trick to knowing for sure, is to hold the board up towards your face, with the other end on the ground, and look at it at a downward angle (as shown in the below photo). This method will allow you to see if it is bowing at all.

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.

Hardwoods are separated into two categories, temperate and tropical hardwoods, depending on their origin. Temperate hardwoods are found in the regions between the tropics and poles, and are of particular interest to wood workers for their cost-effective aesthetic appeal and sustainable sources.[9] Tropical hardwoods are found within the equatorial belt, including Africa, Asia, and South America. Hardwoods flaunt a higher density, around 65lb/cu ft as a result of slower growing rates and is more stable when drying.[9] As a result of its high density, hardwoods are typically heavier than softwoods but can also be more brittle.[9] While there are an abundant number of hardwood species, only 200 are common enough and pliable enough to be used for woodworking.[11] Hardwoods have a wide variety of properties, making it easy to find a hardwood to suit nearly any purpose, but they are especially suitable for outdoor use due to their strength and resilience to rot and decay.[9] The coloring of hardwoods ranges from light to very dark, making it especially versatile for aesthetic purposes. However, because hardwoods are more closely grained, they are typically harder to work than softwoods. They are also harder to acquire in the United States and, as a result, are more expensive.[9]
A while back, I reached for my two containers of epoxy and noticed that the resin in one container had crystallized exactly like honey that’s been in the cupboard too long. The solution is exactly the same too: Set the container in a bowl of hot tap water. After about 15 minutes, I emptied the container and refilled it with hot water. After about a half hour, the epoxy regained its normal consistency. Good as new! — Ken Holte
Cutting a miter joint that closes up perfectly and maintains a 90 degree angle is really satisfying. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always happen. Here’s a quick fix for a slightly open miter joint; rub the shank of a screwdriver along the miter at a steep angle, from both sides of the joint. Chances are, you’ll be the only one that knows it wasn’t perfect to begin with! Try this amazing miter project!

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.

Figure out a simple setup for your woodworking space. You don’t need a fancy and expensive workshop or garage to start woodworking. In fact, we’ve never had a workshop or garage (though I do dream of having one haha). In our current town home, we always setup a temporary workshop table in our backyard with a pair of sawhorses and a plywood board from the home improvement store.

Hardwoods, botanically known as angiosperms, are deciduous and shed their leaves annually with temperature changes.[8] Softwoods come from trees botanically known as gymnosperms, which are coniferous, cone-bearing, and stay green year round.[8] Although a general pattern, softwoods are not necessarily always “softer” than hardwoods, and vice versa.[9]
La Melamina Vesto es el principal material utilizado para la construcción de muebles de cocina, y se utiliza para fabricar su estructura y sus puertas. Es un material muy eficiente, ya que su vida útil excede incluso la vida útil de una cocina, que va desde los 10 a los 15 años. La estructura de un mueble puede ser fabricada utilizando melamina de 15mm de espesor, mientras que para las puertas siempre se recomienda 18mm de espesor, ya que al realizar las perforaciones para las bisagras, este espesor tendrá un mejor rendimiento. En caso de querer prolongar la vida útil de una cocina, es posible generar un diseño que permita cambiar únicamente las puertas, manteniendo las estructuras. De esta forma podemos refrescar la imagen de la cocina a muy bajo costo.
Con buenas herramientas siempre será mas fácil llevar a buen termino las áreas más delicadas, esta eficacia de las herramientas se obtiene a base de cuidado y buen uso, deben desgastarse por el trabajo y no por falta de cuidado . las herramientas representan un dinero invertido y para conservarlas se debe tener presente: las herramientas de filo delicado, por ejemplo: formones, cepillos, etc. Mientras no se usen deben conservar una posición adecuada, tenga cada uno en su caja de herramientas los lugares bien distribuidos.
Antes de empezar a diseñar, lo más importante es entender cómo se va a usar una cocina. Este es el planteamiento básico que se tiene que hacer cualquier arquitecto. Porque la cocina no puede ser el espacio sobrante, o simplemente un espacio que se definirá al final del proyecto; hay que entender que tiene flujos, distintas áreas de trabajo y eso debe llevarse a cabo dentro del proyecto general.
