Zeb dropped my washer boards off this weekend and I was blown away with the quality and craftsmanshi...p! These things look great! Very easy to work with, responded to my questions quickly, and kept a very open line of communication throughout the process! Will definitely be recommending him to my friends! Thanks again for the awesome boards! See More
En 1 triángulo, que será la matriz de los calados, hay que medir el eje o centro de la hipotenusa, que es el lado más largo y que está opuesto al ángulo recto. En este caso el eje es 27 cm. Desde ese punto trazar 2 líneas hacia los catetos, que son los lados menores y que conforman el ángulo recto. Estas 2 líneas llegarán también al centro de los catetos, formando un cuadrado al interior del triángulo. Medir 6,5 mm a cualquier lado de estas líneas, y hacer una segunda marca. El largo de cada calado tiene que ser 10,5 cm y parte desde la hipotenusa

En este taller aprenderemos a transferir cualquier tipo de imagen sobre tela mediante dos técnicas diferentes de transferencia. Para ponerlo en práctica haremos una bolsa de tela con el diseño que tú elijas. Se utilizan materiales fáciles de encontrar para poder repetir en casa lo aprendido. No se utiliza maquinaria ni herramientas costosas. Todos los materiales están incluidos en el precio, así como café e infusiones y un vermú a media mañana.

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.

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.
Here’s a nifty tip—with a nifty tip—from faithful reader Don Ayers: Fill snap-capped sports water bottles with glue and stick them upside down in a hunk of 2×6. Now you don’t have to wait for the glue to run into the neck of the bottle, and the cap will control glue flow (and never get lost!). To holster the glue dispensers, cut holes in the base with a spade bit that’s a smidgen larger than the cap’s diameter.

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.
How do you divide 11-3/8-in. (or any other mathematically difficult number) into equal parts without dividing fractions? Simple. Angle your tape across the workpiece until it reads an easily-divisible dimension and make your marks with the tape angled. For example, say you want to divide an 11-3/8-in. board into three equal parts. Angle the tape until it reads 12-in., and then make marks at “4” and “8”. Plus: More measuring tips and tricks.
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]
No creo que se puedan comparar las aficiones. Para el fútbol, el esquí, el ciclismo… mentalmente nos hacemos la idea de que será diversión desde el primer momento y no buscas un buen resultado inmediato. En carpintería la idea mental es que es necesario aprender, concentrarse en lo que se hace, usar las máquinas y herramientas metidos en el taller… todo nos hace pensar en "trabajo" y no en diversión. Aún por encima muchas veces el fin es el resultado, no el proceso de fabricación, y si no se llega rápido a algo satisfactorio nos frustramos y se abandona la afición en lugar de intentar aprender. Además en España yo diría que hay cultura de grupo y por lo tanto se busca practicar las aficiones con los amigos o hacer nuevos amigos. De todas formas estoy seguro de que hay más aficionados a la carpintería de los que pensamos, pero como estamos "escondidos" en nuestros talleres, si no tenemos amigos con la misma afición la única ventana que tenemos por la que se nos ve es la del ordenador.
