Lacking a jointer? Use reader Court Kites’ awesome tip to create perfectly matched glue joints on wavy or bowed board edges. Lay the boards on a flat surface, then clamp them across the middle with a bar clamp. Lay two 8-in. long by 1-3/4 in. wide scrap boards across each end and screw them in with four 1-1/4 in. long screws, two per board. Keep the screws well away from your future cutting line!
My planer blasts shavings all over the shop floor. I decided to make my own dust chute from 4-in. PVC sewer pipe (which has thinner walls than regular Schedule 40 pipe) and a couple caps. I cut a slit in the pipe and used a heat gun to soften the plastic. That allowed me to open the slit. (Heating PVC releases fumes; ventilation is critical.) I then drilled holes in the flap and screwed it to the planer housing. Finally, I cut a 2-1/2- in. hole in one of the end caps to accept my shop vacuum hose. Works great! — Luis Arce. Here’s what else you can do with PVC pipe.
Pocket screw joinery is a system—employing special drill and driver bits—used to join boards or pieces of plywood to one another. Installing pocket screws involves using a jig to drill a sharply angled, 15-degree hole through the back of one board, then driving a special screw through that hole into the second board to draw them tightly together. Learn how to use pocket screws here. It’s often used in cabinetmaking and furniture building. Here’s how to build cabinets with pocket screws. The term “pocket” comes from the design of the hole which contains an upper “pocket” for the head of the screw to push against; this pocket also hides the head of the screw.
Disfrutar de la carpintería y del bricolaje y, además, tener las herramientas necesarias y de espacio para trabajar es un 'lujo'. No solo porque podemos dar rienda suelta a nuestra creatividad a la vez que disfrutamos de nuestra pasión, sino porque no habrá nada en el hogar que se nos resista. ¿Qué tenemos un problema o necesitamos resolver algo? ¡Acudamos al bricolaje!
Sanding concave molding doesn’t have to be difficult. Find a deep socket that fits the contour of your molding. Wrap a piece of sand- paper around the socket and hold it in place with your fingers. Your sanding will be uniform and the delicate edges of the molding won’t round over. — Eric and Cheryl Weltlich. In this video, Travis talks about his favorite sanding tips.

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.
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.
There is significant evidence of advanced woodworking in ancient Egypt.[1] Woodworking is depicted in many extant ancient Egyptian drawings, and a considerable amount of ancient Egyptian furniture (such as stools, chairs, tables, beds, chests) has been preserved. Tombs represent a large collection of these artefacts and the inner coffins found in the tombs were also made of wood. The metal used by the Egyptians for woodworking tools was originally copper and eventually, after 2000 BC bronze as ironworking was unknown until much later.[2]
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.
Al comenzar a diseñar y a desarrollar las planimetrías, se debe tener presente que la cocina no es simplemente la unión al azar de una serie de muebles y artefactos, sino que está formada a partir de módulos que deben seguir una lógica de fabricación. Si el diseño no es claro o no sigue ciertos parámetros razonables para ser construido, se pueden generan conflictos entre el arquitecto y el mueblista.

1- Desarrollar mentalmente el proyecto y asegurarme de que es viable. Una vez tengo el boceto en mi mente, debo modelarlo en un programa Cad. Esto requiere de incontables horas sentado delante de un ordenador... Con suerte conseguiré un diseño funcional a la primera, de no ser así habré malgastado horas de trabajo y tendré que volver a empezar con el diseño. Siempre intento desarrollar diseños compactos, funcionales, económicos y que sean lo más fáciles de cortar y montar posible. Uno de los factores más positivos de usar tableros contrachapados es que no necesitas tanta herraminta comparado con usar madera maciza.

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.

Another important factor to be considered is the durability of the wood, especially in regards to moisture. If the finished project will be exposed to moisture (e.g. outdoor projects) or high humidity or condensation (e.g. in kitchens or bathrooms), then the wood needs to be especially durable in order to prevent rot. Because of their oily qualities, many tropical hardwoods such as teak and mahogany are popular for such applications.[9]


Finally, as I shared in my post last week on how I learned woodworking, I learned how to use power tools by watching YouTube videos and then just trying them out for myself. I highly recommend this method to learn how to use your power tools. There are lots of videos on specific models of tools too. So, watch a few how-to videos and very importantly, review the tool manual and safety guide for your own tools. Then, go ahead and try the tool out yourself and start using it!
