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]
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.
Se propone en este taller teórico-práctico un acercamiento a la técnica del collage analógico desde la experimentación, la reflexión y el juego. Se realizarán múltiples ejercicios bajo supuestos distintos, haciendo especial hincapié en cómo abordar e ilustrar ideas y conceptos utilizando este recurso. Desde las técnicas más sencillas a las más transgresoras, pasando por la geometría, el Dadaísmo, el ensamblaje o el collage experimental. Todo ello entre montones de revistas y fotografías antiguas. 
Estimado Andrés, gracias por escribirnos. Muy buena su observación, pero el mueble en obra que fabricamos en este proyecto es para tapar el radiador que está en desuso, tal como lo explicamos en el video. Como no se puede sacar, preferimos aprovechar ese espacio con un mueble que fuese funcional al espacio. Esperamos haberle ayudado, saludos cordiales.
I mix a lot of epoxy in small batches, but I’ve seldom had the right size container on hand. I solved this problem by drilling 1-1/2-in. holes in 2×4 scraps with a Forstner bit. The resulting shallow “cups” allow easy mixing without the risk of spilling. When the holes are used up, I just make a new mixing board. — Bill Wells. Save your takeout utensils to use in the shop!
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]
Keep in mind, there are no perfect boards, but try to always use the straighter boards and avoid warping boards. Also, Brandon and I have found that when it comes to picking out lumber at Home Depot and Lowes, they tend to stock up on fresh boards a few days before the weekend starts (so Thursday/Friday). And then, on Sundays and Mondays, the boards are usually really picked over and there isn’t a good selection. Just another tip to keep in mind!
Al partir de cero en una afición como esta, tiene que haber una fase de acercamiento a la práctica que nos permita descubrir que tan grande es nuestro interés, para luego decidir qué caminos tomar en función de nuestras posibilidades. Y me refiero a las posibilidades económicas (que serán las que sean), recursos disponibles (que dependerán en gran medida de la zona donde vivamos) y las posibilidades que nos de nuestra propia habilidad (que mejorará a medida que adquirimos conocimiento y práctica). Así que creo que el del bricolaje de la madera es un buen comienzo para que poco a poco más gente se anime con la afición a la carpintería y luego muchas de esas personas se animen a recibir clases en cursos realizados por artesanos o en escuelas de carpintería centradas en la enseñanza del trabajo más artesano.
