Woodworking was essential to the Romans. It provided, sometimes the only, material for buildings, transportation, tools, and household items. Wood also provided pipes, dye, waterproofing materials, and energy for heat.[5]:1Although most examples of Roman woodworking have been lost,[5]:2 the literary record preserved much of the contemporary knowledge. Vitruvius dedicates an entire chapter of his De architectura to timber, preserving many details.[6] Pliny, while not a botanist, dedicated six books of his Natural History to trees and woody plants, providing a wealth of information on trees and their uses.[7]

Particleboard is a manufactured wood product composed of sawdust, wood chips or wood shavings mixed with a resin. This concoction is layered, compressed, subjected to heat and cut to shape, resulting in a sheet material that can be used for a variety of things. It’s often used as shelving or as an underlayment for carpet. Plastic laminate may be applied to both sides to create a product that can be used to create everything from furniture to cabinets to wall paneling. Head into IKEA and you’ll find acres of particleboard.
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.

gracias por escribirnos. Si va al servicio de tintometria de Tiendas Sodimac y pide el color por su nombre "Cold North" deberían poder encontrarlo en la máquina . Ahora, si no aparece, pídale al vendedor que lo ingrese "por otras marcas" (ya que lo buscará en "Kolor" y con la renovación constante de pantoneras o paleta de colores los nombres van cambiando y no los reconoce como de la marca). Esperamos haberle ayudado, saludos
This simple jig makes laying out circles a breeze. Drill a 1/8-in. hole through every inch mark on a ruler or yard-stick. To draw a circle, place a pin through the number “1” into the center of your board. Add 1 in. to the radius of the circle you wish to draw, and insert a pencil into this number. Using the pin as a pivot, rotate the pencil to mark the circle. — Edwin Constantino. How to Cut Curves in Wood
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.
There are many factors to consider when deciding what type of wood to use for a project. One of the most important is the workability of the wood: the way in which it responds when worked by hand or tools, the quality of the grain, and how it responds to adhesives and finishes.[9] When the workability of wood is high, it offers a lower resistance when cutting and has a diminished blunting effect on tools.[9] Highly workable wood is easier to manipulate into desired forms. If the wood grain is straight and even, it will be much easier to create strong and durable glued joints. Additionally, it will help protect the wood from splitting when nailed or screwed.[9] Coarse grains require a lengthy process of filing and rubbing down the grain to produce a smooth result.[9]

As mentioned before, we've been fortunate to have prizes donated by our great friends at Fine Woodworking Magazine. I want to personally thank /u/benstrano and his associates for sharing the love. We also have prizes sponsored by our own /u/SeanMWalker representing SimpleCove.com. We owe both of these people/organizations so much appreciating for their generous donations that we enjoy year after year.
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.
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!
Sin importar su tamaño, un buen closet, vestier o armario debe construirse pensando específicamente en las necesidades y prendas de sus usuarios, ¿Y quién mejor que tu mismo para saber como quieres tu propio closet? Solicita a tu carpintero que incorpore gavetas, repisas para las carteras, barras a distintas alturas, etc.. Un buen color para la madera también es vital al momento de diseñar el closet.
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
Yo creo que cuando se busca información en internet hay que saber para qué se busca, qué se busca y con qué se encontró uno en esa búsqueda. Mi impresión después de años de afición a la carpintería es que en España (desconozco como está el tema en otros países hispanohablantes) la cultura de trabajo de la madera se ha perdido en un breve periodo de tiempo. Conozco bastante gente que me cuenta que su padre o su abuelo era carpintero y sin embargo ese conocimiento no se ha transmitido y se ha perdido. Últimamente con esto del auge del bricolaje de la madera es mucha la gente que se interesa por aprender, pero en muchos casos se empieza de cero. Y ese es el problema. Si eres aún un chaval te haces por ejemplo un FP (formación profesional) o acudes a una escuela de carpintería y aprendes bien el oficio, pero cuando se tiene una edad mucha gente ya no piensa mucho en recibir clases ni les apetece ir y tira de experimentación, de internet y de algún amigo que le enseñe cuatro cosas. Y no lo veo tan mal, a veces hay que experimentar o ver lo que otros muestran en internet para ver qué posibilidades tiene esta afición y ver hasta donde se puede llegar, ya que a nadie nos gusta hacer grandes inversiones en una afición en la que no sabemos a donde vamos a llegar. Tengo que decir que mi camino ha sido el de la experimentación en mi taller y el de ver vídeos en internet. He ido adquiriendo práctica y algún conocimiento y veo que puedo obtener resultados bastante buenos con lo que dispongo. Siendo consciente de mis limitaciones ahora es donde siento que me gustaría recibir clases con un carpintero profesional o en una escuela de carpintería que me enseñen los conocimientos y las técnicas en condiciones, pero en este momento no me lo puedo permitir y tampoco aquí tengo acceso a esas clases en persona.
