Pocket screws create a solid, simple-to-make joint. Because of the size and visibility of the hole, it’s usually located in areas that are concealed or rarely seen (though special plugs can be used to fill the holes.) Craig Sommerfeld, founder of The Kreg Tool Company, is credited with popularizing pocket screw joinery in the 1980s. The company today is the leader in creating the jigs, clamps and screws used to create pocket screw joints. Learn how to use a pocket screw jig in woodworking projects.

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.
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.
Se trata en ambos casos de una banda de papel especial de alta resistencia, con la diferencia de que la cinta guardavivos está reforzada por dos bandas de acero que, al doblarse en un ángulo de 90º, se adaptan a los cantos. La venda se utiliza para el sellado de uniones interiores o rincones. La cinta guardavivos sirve para proteger las aristas o ángulos exteriores.
Lo mismo deberías hacer para conseguir el resto de materiales, como la tornillería, accesorios o componentes eléctricos. Pregunta precio en varias ferreterías. Puedes imprimir el ejemplo con fotos de herrajes que incluyen mis planos para explicarles más fácilmente lo que necesitas. Como suelen ser piezas pequeñas, también puedes consultar precios en tiendas online. En este apartado del foro puedes encontrar enlaces a muchos de los materiales necesarios.
El uso de los herrajes también tendrá incidencia en el ancho de un módulo. Los herrajes tipo bisagras se destinan principalmente para módulos con puertas, mientras que las correderas se aplican para módulos con cajones. Las bisagras no tienen mayor incidencia en el ancho del módulo. Por el contrario, en el caso de los cajones existen herrajes que definirán el ancho del cajón. Las correderas tradicionales se aplican en módulos de 40cm, 50cm o 60cm, mientras que correderas más avanzadas permiten llegar hasta anchos de 120cm. Es importante entender que las correderas más avanzadas, como las de cierre suave, tienen un costo mayor por lo que en caso de querer aplicarlas en un proyecto es recomendado aprovechar el máximo largo posible. Existen otros tipos de accesorios que permiten darle mayor prestancia a una cocina como es el caso de los especieros (15cm a 20cm), verduleros (40cm a 60cm), secaplatos (modulo superior de 40cm a 85cm) y otros.

En el mercado existe una infinidad de opciones de terminaciones para la cocina. La combinación de colores y formas se da en todos los materiales que uno especifique (melamina, cerámicas, tiradores, artefactos, etc). Frente a esto no existe el concepto de cocina poco atractiva sino que solo existe la cocina mal planeada o fabricada (referencia texto completo). Por lo tanto, en cuanto a gustos, es importante escuchar y entender al cliente para así identificar que estilo e imagen es la que mejor refleja su cocina.
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]

El cáculo y organización del tiempo de trabajo es otro punto a tener muy en cuenta. Nos ayudará a terminar en un tiempo razonable nuestros proyectos, antes de que nos desanimemos y los dejemos de lado... Además, cuando las cosas no salen como uno se espera o tenemos que repetir procesos, nos podemos impacientar y despistarnos, lo que puede derivar en accidentes de trabajo. Ten mucho cuidado, este trabajo es muy peligroso. A lo largo de mi vida laboral he visto todo tipo de accidentes, y en una ocasión yo mismo me corté la mano con una sierra de mesa mientras realizaba un trabajo muy repetitivo y debido a un despiste. Como en el resto de oficios y en la vida cotidiana, el mayor amigo de los accidentes es la rutina y no prestar la atención necesaria.
This self-clamping table saw fence takes only seconds to put on and lets you crank the blade into the fence to create both angled cuts along board edges and extremely thin rip or rabbet cuts. With a hand- or jigsaw, cut pieces from a 1×4, making the inside width of the “L” a hair under the thickness of your saw’s fence. Drill 5/16-in. holes in the L-blocks and plywood fence and join them with two 1/4-in. x 3-in. countersunk machine screws, washers and Wing-Nuts. As always, use extra caution when you’re sawing without a blade guard. Our thanks for this new sawing angle to professional furniture maker George Vondriska.

Del mismo modo y seguramente por imitación desde muy niño empecé a realizar mis propios proyectos. Al principio eran simples juguetes de madera o inocentes artefactos de guerra infantil. Como me gustaba el oficio de trabajar la madera, a los 13 años inicié los estudios de carpintería en un colegio. Eran muy pocas horas de taller y mucha teoría sin aplicación práctica. Sigo pensando que muchos de esos datos no eran necesarios para aprender el oficio, y los que sí lo eran, solo aprendí a memorizarlos y no a utilizarlos en casos prácticos. Creo que esto es algo fundamental para conseguir abrir tu mente, ver cualquier oficio desde una perspectiva diferente y llegar a solucionar problemas por ti mismo. Por eso y porque estaba en plena adolescencia terminé por desanimarme y después de cuatro años dejé los estudios. Junto con unos pequeños cursos de diseño asistido por ordenador esta fue mi única incursión en la enseñanza.
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
Si estás emepezando en este oficio, primero familiarizate con las herramientas eléctricas antes de usarlas. Asegúrate de que todos sus accesorios están en estado óptimo antes enchufarlas y haz pruebas en pequeños trozos de madera. No te olvides de usar elementos de protección laboral si son necesarios, como gafas o guantes. También sería recomendable buscar información y vídeos en internet sobre el uso de herramienta eléctrica.
Yo creo más bien en pequeñas producciones y de calidad. De esta forma los productos obtenidos serán mas sostenibles y duraderos. Lógicamente estas herramientas no suelen ser tan precisas y robustas como otras altamente desarrolladas por grandes marcas y testeadas por multitud de usuarios, las cuales fácilmente encontrarás en el mercado. Pero como he dicho, todo depende de cómo quieras enfocar tus proyectos y modo de vida.
Not long ago, I needed to make some angled wood parts to build a new soffit on my garage. I didn’t have the customary tool for the job, but I had some steel joining plates. I screwed through one of the holes in the plate, set my angle, then added another screw to lock the angle. I could then use it as a template to mark all the pieces at the same angle and cut them with my circular saw. — Ryan Bartsch
Fir, also known as Douglas Fir, is very inexpensive and common at local home centers. It has a characteristic straight, pronounced grain with a red-brown tint. However, its grain pattern is relatively plain and it does not stain well, so Fir is commonly used when the finished product will be painted. While commonly used for building, this softwood would also be suitable for furniture-making as well.[12]
Bueno aca termina el post, y les quiero dejar un anuncio muy importante para el que esta interesado en el tema y es de Santa Fe Capital, se trata sobre la escuela Industrial ubicada en la calle Junin que tiene un taller de carpinteria que funciona a la noche donde se hacen diversos trabajos y estan muy buenos, el tiempo es de 2 horas, creo que es de 8 a 10 Lunes,Miercoles y Viernes, si estas interesado podrias averiguar para inscribirte, no es tan caro y se hacen muchisimos trabajos.
With the advances in modern technology and the demands of industry, woodwork as a field has changed. The development of Computer Numeric Controlled (CNC) Machines, for example, has made us able to mass-produce and reproduce products faster, with less waste, and often more complex in design than ever before. CNC Routers can carve complicated and highly detailed shapes into flat stock, to create signs or art. Rechargeable power tools speed up creation of many projects and require much less body strength than in the past, for example when boring multiple holes. Skilled fine woodworking, however, remains a craft pursued by many. There remains demand for hand crafted work such as furniture and arts, however with rate and cost of production, the cost for consumers is much higher.

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]


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.

Clamping mitered edges can be a real hassle because they never seems to line up correctly. The easiest way that I’ve found to get around this process is to use painter’s tape as clamps. First set the pieces so that the outer edges are facing up and tape them edge-to-edge. The flip the pieces over so the beveled edges are facing up and glue them together. Complete the process by taping the last two edges together and let sit until completed. The tape removes easily and the glue won’t attach to the tape, making sanding and finishing very simple. Try this tip with this clever project!
