It's a little awkward, so we'll get straight to the point: This Sunday we humbly ask you to defend Wikipedia's independence. We depend on donations averaging about $16.36. But 98% of our readers in the U.S. are not responding to our messages, and time is running out to help in 2018. If everyone reading this gave $2.75, we could keep Wikipedia thriving for years to come. The price of your Sunday coffee is all we need. When we made Wikipedia a non-profit, people warned us we'd regret it. But if Wikipedia were commercial, it would be a great loss. Wikipedia unites all of us who love knowledge: contributors, readers and the donors who keep us thriving. The heart and soul of Wikipedia is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to reliable information. Please take a minute to help us keep Wikipedia growing. Thank you.
Along with stone, clay and animal parts, wood was one of the first materials worked by early humans. Microwear analysis of the Mousterian stone tools used by the Neanderthals show that many were used to work wood. The development of civilization was closely tied to the development of increasingly greater degrees of skill in working these materials.
Tired of waiting for finish to dry on one side before finishing the other side? You can purchase standoffs, but it’s also really easy to make them yourself. Simply drive 2-in. drywall screws through 2-in. x 2-in. squares of 3/4-in. thick stock. The screw points will leave a divot in the finish that can be touched up later, but I always let the back side of my project rest on the screws while the finish dries. — Matt Boley. Plus: Check out these 32 other handy hints for frugal shop rats.
Al comenzar a diseñar y a desarrollar las planimetrías, se debe tener presente que la cocina no es simplemente la unión al azar de una serie de muebles y artefactos, sino que está formada a partir de módulos que deben seguir una lógica de fabricación. Si el diseño no es claro o no sigue ciertos parámetros razonables para ser construido, se pueden generan conflictos entre el arquitecto y el mueblista.
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!
There is significant evidence of advanced woodworking in ancient Egypt.[1] Woodworking is depicted in many extant ancient Egyptian drawings, and a considerable amount of ancient Egyptian furniture (such as stools, chairs, tables, beds, chests) has been preserved. Tombs represent a large collection of these artefacts and the inner coffins found in the tombs were also made of wood. The metal used by the Egyptians for woodworking tools was originally copper and eventually, after 2000 BC bronze as ironworking was unknown until much later.[2]
Si vives en ambientes muy húmedos y tu casa o taller no está bien aislado del exterior es conveniente usar contrachapado marino. Para ciertas partes o piezas que soportan peso estructural o tensión será mejor usar contrachapado duro, suelen ser pocas piezas. Las ventajas de usar contrachapado son que necesitaremos menos herramientas que si usamos madera maciza, ahorramos en tiempo de trabajo y será muy fácil reemplazar alguna pieza en mal estado de nuestras herramientas caseras.
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.

Después de terminar mi primera sierra de mesa, un carpintero que en aquel momento se dedicaba a la fabricación de armarios empotrados me dijo que esta herramienta no serviría para su trabajo o para un trabajo constante y exigente de carpintería, y tenía razón. Creo que él no tenía en cuenta que no todos los trabajos se basan ni creo que deban basarse en grandes producciones. Por la misma razón, la sierra de mesa comprada que él tenía tampoco serviría para abastecer de mobiliario a una multinacional del mueble. Tampoco compensaría comprarla para realizar un trabajo a pequeña escala como para un pequeño taller de fabricación de maquetas. Todo depende de lo que quieras hacer... existen carpinteros que se ganan la vida sin utilizar corriente eléctrica, trabajando solo con sus manos.

Cutting a miter joint that closes up perfectly and maintains a 90 degree angle is really satisfying. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always happen. Here’s a quick fix for a slightly open miter joint; rub the shank of a screwdriver along the miter at a steep angle, from both sides of the joint. Chances are, you’ll be the only one that knows it wasn’t perfect to begin with! Try this amazing miter project!

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.
