With two varieties, red and white, oak is known to be easy to work with and relatively strong. However, furniture makers often opt for white oak over red oak for its attractive figure and moisture-resistance.[12] Depending on the kind needed, oak can probably be found at a local home center or a lumberyard for a bit pricier than other hardwoods.[12][13]

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
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]

Tocomadera es un proyecto de mobiliario social, desarrollado en el ámbito de las actividades de investigación y extensión de la Escuela Universitaria Centro de Diseño (Farq/UdelaR) de Uruguay. El equipo responsable está compuesto por 5 diseñadores y el proyecto, concebido dentro del formato de diseño de código abierto, es decir, de uso libre y gratuito, apunta a proveer una solución de equipamiento doméstico a programas de asistencia social o a poblaciones ante situaciones de catástrofe.

For many of us, the moment we learned that a 2×4 board is actually 1.5 inches x 3.5 inches was simply mind-blowing. The reason for this apparent contradiction is that the board has been planed down to eliminate irregularities. At one point, many years ago, 2x4s actually were 2 inches x 4 inches, but their rough surfaces made them difficult to stock and handle. The old terms, such as 2×4 or 4×4, are still used, and are known as the “nominal” size of the board. These nominal sizes are used because they are easier to say and they stick to tradition. Now, thanks to a lawsuit, most big box stores list the nominal and actual sizes of lumber.
Instead of permanently mounting my 6-in. vise to a work-bench, I attached it to scrap plywood so I can clamp it wherever I need it. Stack two pieces of 3/4-in. plywood and screw them together with 1-1/4 in. drywall screws. Mark the vise-mounting holes on the plywood and drill 3/4-in. guide holes through both pieces. Recess the nut by drilling through the bottom sheet with a 1-in. spade bit using the 3/4-in. hole as a guide. Fasten the vise to the plywood with bolts sized to match the vise-mounting holes. If the bolt shafts are too long, cut them off with a hacksaw. — LuAnn Aiu. Plus: Learn how to use vise grips to pull nails.
Hardwoods, botanically known as angiosperms, are deciduous and shed their leaves annually with temperature changes.[8] Softwoods come from trees botanically known as gymnosperms, which are coniferous, cone-bearing, and stay green year round.[8] Although a general pattern, softwoods are not necessarily always “softer” than hardwoods, and vice versa.[9]
Creo que básicamente existen dos razones para fabricar tus propias herramientas. Una de ellas puede ser simplemente por diversión... con esto quiero decir que no hace falta más razón para realizar proyectos que la necesidad que nace de uno mismo para hacerlo, sin ninguna otra pretensión. De este modo uno no valora el tiempo invertido o la viabilidad y rentabilidad de un proyecto, y poco se puede cuestionar al respecto pues depende de las inquietudes de cada persona.
Often times at first glance a board looks straight and the fact that it is actually bowed or has some warping isn’t always obvious. So the trick to knowing for sure, is to hold the board up towards your face, with the other end on the ground, and look at it at a downward angle (as shown in the below photo). This method will allow you to see if it is bowing at all.

Finally, as I shared in my post last week on how I learned woodworking, I learned how to use power tools by watching YouTube videos and then just trying them out for myself. I highly recommend this method to learn how to use your power tools. There are lots of videos on specific models of tools too. So, watch a few how-to videos and very importantly, review the tool manual and safety guide for your own tools. Then, go ahead and try the tool out yourself and start using it!
Con 1 plancha salen 34 triángulos, que pueden alcanzar como sugerencia para hacer un estante mediano y una mesa de centro. -Pedir en el Servicio de Dimensionado que corten la plancha de terciado en 17 cuadrado de 40 cm. Lo que sobre hay que traerlo a la casa porque servirá como guías de apoyo y corte. De estos 17 cuadrado se obtienen 34 triángulos rectángulos
Después habrá que crear el soporte, que puede ser para colgarlo o para mantenerlo en pie. Para ello, debes doblar el alambre que teníamos en los materiales en la forma que ves en la imagen superior para poder colocarlo sobre una superficie lisa. En el caso de que prefieras colgarlo, te bastará con que hagas un agujero en la parte superior para luego colocarlo en un cuelgafácil en la pared. ¿A qué ha sido fácil el proceso de personalizar este marco de fotos? ¿Te animas a ponerlo en práctica?
Popular and easy to work with, cherry is in high demand for its reddish-brown color and ease of staining and finishing. Cherry likely won’t be at the local home center, but should be at a lumberyard for a somewhat expensive price.[12] This hardwood is a very common material for furniture, and is resistant to normal wear-and-tear, but it is best for indoor pieces.[13]
Debe tener tambien, un tornillo de fijacion, el cual siempre nos sera necesario a la hora de hacer cualquier trabajo en el banco. Debe de ser de madera y estar en la parte delantera derecha, para facilitarnos el trabajo. Se trata de un tablon movil, siuado delante de la pata delantera derecha, que va desde el suelo hasta el limite de la cubierta, fijado con bisagra a la parte inferior y libre en la parte superior, atravesado por un gran tornillo en forma de "T" a la mitad del mismo, que nos servira para sujetar firmemente las piezas en las que vayamos a trabajar.

La aplicación de este tipo de “suples” se puede evitar dependiendo de cómo se ha planteado el diseño de la cocina desde un principio. Por ejemplo, cuando diseñamos una cocina, la ubicación del refrigerador o un comedor de diario nos pueden ayudar a evitar estas piezas de ajuste, siendo el espacio destinado para el refrigerador o mesa el que asuma esos 5cm o 10cm de diferencia. En este sentido en vez de destinar 70cm cerrados para un refrigerador, dejamos 75cm.

Estimado Servando, gracias por escribirnos. Nos alegra saber que tenemos seguidores desde tan lejos y que se están aventurando a realizar nuestros proyectos. Quizás no es necesario destruir el perchero, depende del tipo de pintura que eligió puede haber una solución para que no tenga que volver a empezar. Deseamos que el mueble en obra pueda llevarlo a cabo sin novedad. Saludos cordiales a México y éxito.
Finally, properly preparing your wood surface is super important. It will make a huge difference when it comes times to stain, paint, or finish your wood. There are a lot of tips for wood surface preparation, but sanding the wood is one of the most important steps. And I find it really helpful to do the bulk of my sanding before I start ripping (cutting) and building with my wood since it’s still in whole pieces. You can check out my simple tips for how to sand wood in my how to stain wood tutorial, which is also good to reference if you need to learn how to stain too!

Hace unos días Julio me dejó un extenso comentario con su opinión sobre qué le parece eso de aprender carpintería a base de leer blogs y ver vídeos en internet. Pensé que este es un buen tema para una entrada del blog, así que copio y pego su comentario (espero no te importe Julio) y después dejo mi contestación. Veréis que no estamos de acuerdo en todo, supongo que porque nuestros caminos y nuest ...
