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.

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.
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]
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]
With strength, sturdiness, and durability, maple is a common material for furniture for the bedroom and even china cabinets. Maple is moisture-resistant and frequently displays stand-out swirls in the wood grain, an aesthetically pleasing differentiator from other hardwoods. While most commonly a lighter color, maple also can take stains and paint well.[13]

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.
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.

Con varias herramientas de mano y unos tableros de contrachapado fabriqué mi propia sierra y fresadora de mesa. Unos días más tarde grabé un vídeo mostrando sus funciones básicas y lo compartí en mi canal de youtube. Lo que sucedió después fué toda una sorpresa... muchos usuarios de youtube me pedían una igual o los planos para poder fabricarla ellos mismos. Como podía y sabía realizar un modelo del diseño en 3D con todas sus medidas y el despieces necesario para que cualquiera con un poco de conocimientos pudiera fabricarla, me puse a la tarea y monté una pequeña web donde por un precio razonable compartí el diseño.
Pedir en el Servicio de Dimensionado la madera prensada de 15 mm en las siguientes medidas: 1 trozo de 180x90 cm para el frente, 6 costillas de 30x90 cm, para estructurar el mueble 1 corte de 177x10 cm, 4 de 20x10 y 2 de 26x10 cm, además se necesitan 3 de 49 cm como base interior, 3 como repisas que miden 48,5 y 1 35x180 cm como cubierta del mueble.

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.
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.

When it comes to woodworking for beginners, there are 6 things that I think are essential to know for how to start woodworking. I’m going to discuss each of these tips in hopefully a really simple way to make it a breeze to understand, so you can get to the fun part of actually starting to woodwork! I wish when I started and was learning how to woodwork that I had a simple beginner tips guide like this one!
“I do a lot of finish-sanding freehand, without a sandpaper block, so I can smooth edges and get into nooks and crannies. But the finer grits are usually bonded to thinner paper and, at least for me, the paper is too thin and ends up tearing long before the grit wears out. So I apply duct tape to the back of the sandpaper. The sandpaper is still flexible enough to sand a tight radius and it’s far more durable. You can use this super-strong sandpaper like a shoeshine rag.” — Chuck Merchant
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!

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.
La cuña sirve para fijar el hierro y el contrahierro a la caja. La garlopa mide 8965 cm a 70 cm de largo su ancho y grueso es de 7 cm a 8 cm y lleva unba empuñadura en la parte superior y se emplea para enderezar cantos. El garlopin su medida es de 48 cm de largo por 6 cm de ancho y alto, lleva también empuñadura y se usa para desvastar, no lleva contrahierro. El guillame, es de medida reducida 20 cm por la 2 de espesor, el hierro tiene el mismo espesor que la caja, por eso se utiliza donde seno puede trabajar con el cepillo, especialmente para enrazar y hacer rebajas. 

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.
The progenitors of Chinese woodworking are considered to be Lu Ban (魯班) and his wife Lady Yun, from the Spring and Autumn period (771 to 476 BC). Lu Ban is said to have introduced the plane, chalk-line, and other tools to China. His teachings were supposedly left behind in the book Lu Ban Jing (魯班經, "Manuscript of Lu Ban"). Despite this, it is believed that the text was written some 1500 years after his death. This book is filled largely with descriptions of dimensions for use in building various items such as flower pots, tables, altars, etc., and also contains extensive instructions concerning Feng Shui. It mentions almost nothing of the intricate glue-less and nail-less joinery for which Chinese furniture was so famous.
Iron-on edge-banding is a quick way to cover up an edge on plywood. Trimming the excess, however, is tricky. I’ve tried edge-banding trimmers, but I find the results are unpredictable. With the trimmers I’ve tried, it wasn’t easy to change the direction of the cut to suit the grain direction of the edge-banding. If you’re cutting against the grain, you’re likely to tear out a chunk of your new edge-banding. Instead, I use a wide, sharp chisel. This way, I can read the grain direction and trim accordingly. Angle the chisel slightly and go slow, raising the back corner of the chisel just enough so that it doesn’t dig into the plywood veneer. Smooth the corner with a sanding block after trimming. Check out this amazing edge band veneering project!

Esto depende un poco de la zona donde uno vive. Primero porque puede que no seas capaz de encontrar ciertos materiales o tableros, y también por la climatología de tu zona. Realmente puedes usar casi cualquier tablero para fabricar estos diseños, aunque como es lógico con ciertos materiales conseguirás herramientas o muebles más estables y duraderos. Si vas a cambiar de material, mejor usar uno con el mismo grosor. De ese modo las medidas de todas las piezas serán iguales a las de los planos. Si cambias de grosor, seguramente tendrás que variar la dimensión de alguna pieza para adaptarla al nuevo grosor del tablero. Puedes recalcular las nuevas dimensiones modificando el modelo 3D de SketchUp que incluyen mis planos, aunque si no tienes conocimientos del programa será un poco difícil.
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.
Examples of Bronze Age wood-carving include tree trunks worked into coffins from northern Germany and Denmark and wooden folding-chairs. The site of Fellbach-Schmieden in Germany has provided fine examples of wooden animal statues from the Iron Age. Wooden idols from the La Tène period are known from a sanctuary at the source of the Seine in France.
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.

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.

Entre tu blog y el mio hay grandes diferencias en cuanto al contenido. A ti se te ve entusiasmado con el conocimiento de las técnicas, para ti la estética final de tus proyectos de carpintería no se entiende totalmente sin la estética de tu forma de trabajar. Yo disfruto viendo trabajar así porque entiendo el esfuerzo, el conocimiento y la pasión que se hacen necesarios para trabajar de esa manera, pero a la hora de realizar mis proyectos tengo que tirar de mis posibilidades y busco más el resultado final antes de pensar en un trabajo tan perfeccionista (que no he tenido posibilidad de aprender y que no se aprende en cuatro días solo viendo vídeos en internet). Para realizar los proyectos tiro de mis máquinas eléctricas de bricolaje, lo que me obliga a aislarme (gafas, mascarilla y cascos para los oídos) para protegerme de la madera que se defiende lanzándome grandes cantidades de astillas y serrín que se meten y se clavan en los ojos, polvo de madera que me atasca los pulmones y provocando que las máquinas generen ruidos ensordecedores. Mientras, tú necesitas un contacto más directo con la madera, la tratas amablemente, sientes la sutil vibración de las herramientas manuales mientras cortan las fibras acompañadas de un característico sonido, y por lo que veo la madera te responde encantada, encantada en todos los sentidos.
