Here’s an easier way to stain or seal chairs, lattice or anything with numerous tight recesses. Pour the stain into a clean, empty spray bottle ($3). Spray the stain onto the project and wipe up the excess with a brush or rag. The sprayer will squirt stain into all those tight, hard-to-reach cracks and joints. — Valrie Schuster. Learn more about staining wood.


Instead of using a container to mix a small amount of epoxy, just make a mixing surface on your workbench using painters tape. Simply lay down strips, overlapping the edges so the epoxy doesn’t get on your bench. When you’re done, peel off the tape and throw it away. This mixing surface will work for more than just epoxy, you can use it for wood glue or any other material you need easy access to while working on a project.
Cedars are strong, aromatic softwoods that are capable of enduring outdoor elements, the most common of which is the Western Red Cedar. Western Red Cedar can sustain wet environments without succumbing to rot, and as a result is commonly used for outdoor projects such as patios, outdoor furniture, and building exteriors. This wood can be easily found at most home centers for a moderate price.[12]
Typically furniture such as tables and chairs is made using solid stock from hardwoods due to its strength and resistance to warping.[10] Additionally, they also have a greater variety of grain patterns and color and take a finish better which allows the woodworker to exercise a great deal of artistic liberty. Hardwoods can be cut more cleanly and leave less residue on sawblades and other woodworking tools.[10] Cabinet/fixture makers employ the use of plywood and other man made panel products. Some furniture, such as the Windsor chair involve green woodworking, shaping with wood while it contains its natural moisture prior to drying.

Las horas se tienen que reservar con antelación para evitar que haya más de tres personas trabajando en el local (incluyéndome a mi), para que sea lo más cómodo posible y no tengamos que esperar para utilizar herramientas, etc. El horario para venir a trabajar lo eliges tú pero siempre dentro de nuestro horario comercial, es decir, de 10.30 a 20.30 h. Excepcionalmente, si este horario no te va bien, podría ser también más tarde de las 20.30 h., incluso algún sábado, pero eso lo tendríamos que acordar.

2- Al mismo tiempo y para completar el diseño debo buscar todos los materiales y componentes necesarios, algunos de ellos son difíciles de encontar, o los que encuentro son muy caros... Siempre intento usar materiales con buena relación calida/precio y fáciles de encontar en el mayor número de países posible. Aprovecho mi búsqueda online para compartir los enlaces con vosotros en el foro de la web.

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]

While trying to trace an exact copy of the throat plate for my table saw, I came up with this nifty technique using an ordinary pencil. I just shaved my pencil into a half-pencil by carefully grinding it on my belt sander. The flat edge enables my modified pencil to ride straight up along the edge of the template. It also works great for marking and then shaping inlays for my woodworking projects. — Tim Reese. How to cut circles with a band saw.


YP - The Real Yellow PagesSM - helps you find the right local businesses to meet your specific needs. Search results are sorted by a combination of factors to give you a set of choices in response to your search criteria. These factors are similar to those you might use to determine which business to select from a local Yellow Pages directory, including proximity to where you are searching, expertise in the specific services or products you need, and comprehensive business information to help evaluate a business's suitability for you. “Preferred” listings, or those with featured website buttons, indicate YP advertisers who directly provide information about their businesses to help consumers make more informed buying decisions. YP advertisers receive higher placement in the default ordering of search results and may appear in sponsored listings on the top, side, or bottom of the search results page.
Here’s a nifty tip—with a nifty tip—from faithful reader Don Ayers: Fill snap-capped sports water bottles with glue and stick them upside down in a hunk of 2×6. Now you don’t have to wait for the glue to run into the neck of the bottle, and the cap will control glue flow (and never get lost!). To holster the glue dispensers, cut holes in the base with a spade bit that’s a smidgen larger than the cap’s diameter.
3- Una vez he terminado el modelo, realizo todas las presentaciones acotadas, láminas Pdf, fotos y despieces que podéis ver en mis planos. Si aún no los has visto, puedes visitar la sección de planos gratis de mi web y descargar alguno de ellos. La experiencia que me han dado mis anteriores trabajos me ayuda a comprender lo que es necesario y lo que no lo es para que un usuario con conocimientos medios en carpinteria y poca herramienta pueda llegar a realizar cualquiera de los proyectos.
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]
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.
Historically, woodworkers relied upon the woods native to their region, until transportation and trade innovations made more exotic woods available to the craftsman. Woods are typically sorted into three basic types: hardwoods typified by tight grain and derived from broadleaf trees, softwoods from coniferous trees, and man-made materials such as plywood and MDF.
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.

La segunda razón es más racional. Puede surgir de la necesidad de rentabilizar económicamente una idea o trabajo. Puede que necesites optimizar tiempos de trabajo, automatizar procesos, adaptar una idea o mueble a tus necesidades, o simplemente lo que necesitas para sacar más partido a tu empresa no existe en el mercado o es muy difícil de conseguir donde uno vive.
Sanding small items is tricky, as they’re hard to clamp in a vise to work on them. So instead of bringing the sandpaper to the workpiece, I bring the workpiece to the sandpaper. I glue sheets of sandpaper to a piece of plywood; 60 and 100-grit on one side and 150 and 220-grit on the other. Spray adhesive works well for this. Since there’s sandpaper on both sides, my sanding board doesn’t slide around on the bench. Check out these small projects!
En algunos comentarios a mi me dicen maestro y tengo que decir que me lo tomo con humor, ya que yo de maestro carpintero no tengo nada. Yo diría que lo mio es el bricolaje de la madera. Soy bastante apañado, eso si. Sobre todo con mis herramientas eléctricas. E intento mostrar mis trucos y cómo hago algunos proyectos, buscando mejorar nuestros pequeños talleres para intentar maximizar las posibilidades de nuestras pequeñas máquinas. Y con la intención de animar a quien ve mi vídeos y lee mi blog a seguir con esta afición. Pero quien busque en mi a quien le enseñe la profesión de carpintero está en el sitio equivocado. Estoy totalmente de acuerdo contigo en que si quieres aprender realmente la profesión de carpintero debes buscarte una escuela donde recibir las clases de teoría y prácticas necesarias. Si uno se conforma con hacer algunos proyectos en su taller casero siempre está bien echar un ojo a los trucos y proyectos que otros cuelgan en internet, aunque eso también puede suponer riesgos y frustraciones. Contra eso sentido común, paciencia y recapacitar sobre cuales deben ser las fuentes de conocimiento a las que se acude.
