A while back, I reached for my two containers of epoxy and noticed that the resin in one container had crystallized exactly like honey that’s been in the cupboard too long. The solution is exactly the same too: Set the container in a bowl of hot tap water. After about 15 minutes, I emptied the container and refilled it with hot water. After about a half hour, the epoxy regained its normal consistency. Good as new! — Ken Holte
If you have to pick up long lengths of wood from the lumberyard, throw a spring clamp in the back of your vehicle. Use the clamp to attach the warning flag to the end of the protruding lumber. The clamp’s easy to slip on and off, and you won’t have to fuss around with staples, nails or string. — Steve Parker. Plus: Learn more about how to transport large items in your truck.
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.
Not happy with the selection of sanding blocks at the hardware store, I made a few of my own from hardwood scraps left over from a woodworking project. I cut each one to 3/4 in. x 1-1/2 in. x 4-1/2 in.—which is just the right size to wrap a quarter sheet of sandpaper around. And the “kerf” cut helps hold the sandpaper in place until I’m ready to change it. —Tim Olaerts. Here are 41 more genius sanding tips you need to know.

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]

Más allá del estilo o el diseño requerido por el cliente, es importante definir una cierta modulación que permita optimizar su rendimiento y así minimizar los costos de fabricación de sus diferentes elementos. De este modo, las medidas de todos los componentes de una cocina tienen que estar entendidas e interiorizadas antes de definir el espacio que los albergará.
With strength, sturdiness, and durability, maple is a common material for furniture for the bedroom and even china cabinets. Maple is moisture-resistant and frequently displays stand-out swirls in the wood grain, an aesthetically pleasing differentiator from other hardwoods. While most commonly a lighter color, maple also can take stains and paint well.[13]
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]
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.

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]

Thanks again for the awesome boards! See More
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!
Short scraps of hardwood are too good to throw away but hard to store neatly. So I bought a 4-ft. tube form made for concrete footings, cut it in half (the cardboard-like material cuts easily) and set the tubes on end. I tack the tubes to a wall or a bench leg so they don’t fall over. With the wood scraps stored upright, it’s easy to find a piece just the right length. Tube forms are available in various diameters for $5 and up at home centers. — Bill Wells. Here’s another brilliant use for these concrete forms.
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.

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]

gracias por escribirnos. Si va al servicio de tintometria de Tiendas Sodimac y pide el color por su nombre "Cold North" deberían poder encontrarlo en la máquina . Ahora, si no aparece, pídale al vendedor que lo ingrese "por otras marcas" (ya que lo buscará en "Kolor" y con la renovación constante de pantoneras o paleta de colores los nombres van cambiando y no los reconoce como de la marca). Esperamos haberle ayudado, saludos

The progenitors of Chinese woodworking are considered to be Lu Ban (魯班) and his wife Lady Yun, from the Spring and Autumn period (771 to 476 BC). Lu Ban is said to have introduced the plane, chalk-line, and other tools to China. His teachings were supposedly left behind in the book Lu Ban Jing (魯班經, "Manuscript of Lu Ban"). Despite this, it is believed that the text was written some 1500 years after his death. This book is filled largely with descriptions of dimensions for use in building various items such as flower pots, tables, altars, etc., and also contains extensive instructions concerning Feng Shui. It mentions almost nothing of the intricate glue-less and nail-less joinery for which Chinese furniture was so famous.


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.

Hard to determine which stain you need in that bespattered collection of cans? An easy-to-make “stain index,” courtesy of reader Bob Jacek, solves the problem. Section off boards of your favorite woods into squares with masking tape, and apply the different stains across the width of each wood type (pine, oak, birch, etc.). When the stains are dry, brush on lengthwise your regular finishes—polyurethane, water-based polyurethane, oil, orange shellac, etc. You’ll be able to tell how each stain looks with each finish. Label each one. Use both sides of each board, and you’ll have a wooden encyclopedia of stain and finish combinations. Plus: How to stain wood evenly.

Sanding the inside of a hole or curved surface can be difficult. To simplify that task, insert a 1/4 x 3-in. bolt into the pilot hole of a hole-saw cutout. Secure the bolt with a washer and nut. Using a hacksaw, cut a 1/4-in. deep slot in line with the bolt. Cut a piece of adhesive-backed sandpaper so that you can slide one end into the slot, wrap it around the cutout, and slide the other end back into the slot. Chuck the bolt into a drill, and you now have a homemade drum sander. — E.R. Comstock. How to Sand Wood Faster
