Sanding the inside of a hole or curved surface can be difficult. To simplify that task, insert a 1/4 x 3-in. bolt into the pilot hole of a hole-saw cutout. Secure the bolt with a washer and nut. Using a hacksaw, cut a 1/4-in. deep slot in line with the bolt. Cut a piece of adhesive-backed sandpaper so that you can slide one end into the slot, wrap it around the cutout, and slide the other end back into the slot. Chuck the bolt into a drill, and you now have a homemade drum sander. — E.R. Comstock. How to Sand Wood Faster

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.


My goal this year was to start using my scrap wood for other things than firewood. Well trying to repurpose scrap sure did get the creative juices flowing and I do have to say, this wine holder turned out pretty good for just a stack of warped, and sappy 2x6 cut offs. Go check out our Etsy shop in our bio if you want to make this piece a part of your home. 😉
Exceptional talent and professionalism. I wanted to gift my husband with a custom table top for an e...levating desk that was not made of real wood. While our order was delayed by uncontrollable circumstances (warping wood, machine failure, etc.) the quality of the final piece was beyond what we were expecting. In addition, Vance Custom Woodworking reassembled the entire desk at no extra cost to ensure the integrity of the beautiful new top. I would, and have, happily recommended friends and family to come here for any custom woodwork requests. See More
Debe tener tambien, un tornillo de fijacion, el cual siempre nos sera necesario a la hora de hacer cualquier trabajo en el banco. Debe de ser de madera y estar en la parte delantera derecha, para facilitarnos el trabajo. Se trata de un tablon movil, siuado delante de la pata delantera derecha, que va desde el suelo hasta el limite de la cubierta, fijado con bisagra a la parte inferior y libre en la parte superior, atravesado por un gran tornillo en forma de "T" a la mitad del mismo, que nos servira para sujetar firmemente las piezas en las que vayamos a trabajar.

Para el caso de las torres se recomienda trabajar con la misma profundidad de las bases, idealmente 60cm. En el caso de considerar un horno en la torre, esta debe tener 60cm exactos de profundidad. Es importante entender que el calor del horno se debe liberar generando una abertura de 10cm en la trasera hasta el techo de esta. Actualmente existen hornos que no requieren esta abertura por lo que siempre es importante revisar las especificaciones de cada artefacto antes de considerar el diseño del módulo.

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]
Si una cosa está clara para mi es que la madera recuperada tiene un encanto y una personalidad que no se encuentra en la madera nueva. Pero, según para lo que la utilicemos, tenemos que tener cuidado de dejarla bien limpia para ahorrarnos problemas. En estas líneas os doy unos sencillos pasos a seguir para limpiar bien la madera y dejarla lista para crear mil objetos con ella.

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.


Es importante, que utilices las herramientas para pulir madera al menos en tres manos de lijado, siempre utilizando desde la lija más gruesa a la más fina, es decir, debes lijar toda la habitación con la lija más gruesa, luego vuelves a lijar toda la superficie con la lija mediana y finalmente repites el proceso con la lija más fina. Los sócalos y terminaciones, deben lijarse a mano con lijas finas.
1ª Parte: el participante traerá a mi taller un objeto feo, pasado de moda, roto, que ya no utilice y allí, pondremos en práctica la máxima: “todo se puede cambiar” Trabajaremos en dos grupos, uno el día 2 de abril y otro el 3 de abril, y pondremos a prueba nuestra creatividad para, aplicando diferentes técnicas de restauración, convertirlo en un objeto funcional y muy bonito que volverá de nuevo a nuestras vidas.

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.
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.
When cutting full sheets with my circular saw, I use plastic shelving units as sawhorses. The height is just right and by using three of them, I can make cuts in any direction and the plywood is fully supported. And because the shelving units are made of plastic, I can cut right into them without worrying that they’ll damage my saw blade. Plastic shelves are available for $20 at home centers. — John Tinger. Check out these tips for making long cuts with a circular saw.
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.
KHIEM NGUYEN (Age 28, Austin, TX): Inspired by midcentury modern and Japanese design, Nguyen is a true craftsman. His passion for crafting began with photography and led to him becoming an open major in art school so he could "get (his) hands into everything." After college, Nguyen and his fiancée moved to Austin, where they began A & K Woodworking & Design, specializing in furniture and wood crafts.
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!

I use binder clips for a lot of things around the shop, and here’s one that I thought I’d share. When I need to make multiple cuts all the same length, I just clamp my jumbo binder clip to my fence and use a 1/4-in.-thick wood scrap pinched in the clip as a stop. Works like a charm! When it’s not in use, I clamp it to the cord so it’s always nearby. — John Muchow

Short scraps of hardwood are too good to throw away but hard to store neatly. So I bought a 4-ft. tube form made for concrete footings, cut it in half (the cardboard-like material cuts easily) and set the tubes on end. I tack the tubes to a wall or a bench leg so they don’t fall over. With the wood scraps stored upright, it’s easy to find a piece just the right length. Tube forms are available in various diameters for $5 and up at home centers. — Bill Wells. Here’s another brilliant use for these concrete forms.
