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]
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!
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]
Hacer una guitarra no es fácil, es un trabajo de mucha precisión por lo que debes ser muy paciente y minucioso. Como no podía acceder a cursos de formación me dediqué a leer varios libros sobre la materia, buscar mucha información en internet y pasar por multitud de "prueba/error". Para mucha gente todo este tiempo y trabajo no era rentable, y tenían razón si solo lo miras desde un punto de vista económico, trabajaba demasiado y apenas ganaba dinero. Ni antes ni ahora me arrepiento lo más mínimo.
Estimado Matias, muchas gracias por escribirnos. Si usted quiere pintar su mueble le recomendamos usar MDF, si se quiere ahorrar este trabajo utilice melamina, eso só tendrá que tapar los cantos. Lo otro importante es si su mueble es para baños o cocina, es mejor que lo haga en melamina, ya que su revestimiento es resistente a la humedad. Si está buscando tener un mueble resistente, que sostenga bastante peso como un estante o librero, le recomendams hacerlo con el MDF. Esperamos que con esto pueda elegir la madera correcta para el mueble que quiere hacer. Saludos
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.
“I do a lot of finish-sanding freehand, without a sandpaper block, so I can smooth edges and get into nooks and crannies. But the finer grits are usually bonded to thinner paper and, at least for me, the paper is too thin and ends up tearing long before the grit wears out. So I apply duct tape to the back of the sandpaper. The sandpaper is still flexible enough to sand a tight radius and it’s far more durable. You can use this super-strong sandpaper like a shoeshine rag.” — Chuck Merchant

El colmo de los colmos, reciclar algo que ya habías reciclado antes ¿hiper reciclaje? si, puede ser... En Madrid esta caja fue mi mesita de noche, podéis verla el post que hice sobre mi cabecero de Cds reciclados, pero al hacer la mudanza no le encontraba un sitio definitivo así que decidí transformarla en una camita para el gato. La cosa es muy fácil, simplemente compré cuatro ruedas rojas para ...

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!
A board is considered “quarter-sawn” when the growth rings run, more or less, perpendicular to the face of the board. Quarter-sawn boards generally have straight grain and are less prone to shrinkage, compared to other boards. These factors don’t come into play with the 2x4s you use to frame a closet—but it does with the shelves and cabinetry you put into that closet; you want those boards to remain straight, flat and stable.
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

4- Finalmente por fin puedo dedicarme a la construcción del proyecto, aunque al tener que grabar vídeo al mismo tiempo esto se vuelve mucho más laborioso! Al igual que cuando estoy modelando en el ordenador, con un poco de suerte todo funcionará a la primera. En más de una ocasión he tenido que tirar tableros y horas de trabajo para volver a empezar la fabricación porque algo ha fallado, algunos problemas son imperceptibles hasta finalizada la construcción...


Con buenas herramientas siempre será mas fácil llevar a buen termino las áreas más delicadas, esta eficacia de las herramientas se obtiene a base de cuidado y buen uso, deben desgastarse por el trabajo y no por falta de cuidado . las herramientas representan un dinero invertido y para conservarlas se debe tener presente: las herramientas de filo delicado, por ejemplo: formones, cepillos, etc. Mientras no se usen deben conservar una posición adecuada, tenga cada uno en su caja de herramientas los lugares bien distribuidos.
La elección de materiales también es muy importante desde un punto de vista ecológico. Dentro de lo que significa para el entorno trabajar con maderas, la eleccón de tableros contachapados de abedul es muy sostenible. Es una especie muy abundante, de rápido crecimiento y los fabricantes de tableros del norte de Europa los van repoblando a medida que los talan. Además el desperdicio de material es menor que si trabajamos con troncos de madera maciza. 
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.

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 pensar en los artefactos, los módulos generalmente son de 60cm y 90cm en el caso de hornos, microondas, encimeras y campanas. Un horno, por ejemplo, mide un poco menos de 60 cm y está pensado para caber perfectamente en un nicho de 60 cm, considerando los costados. En el caso de lavaplatos, estos dependerán de la perforación que se debe realizar en la cubierta y si son instalados sobre la cubierta o bajo esta. En el mercado existen modelos que varían desde 30cm hasta 90cm de ancho. Es importante que el nicho calce dentro del módulo y se le den unos cm de holgura. La sección del escurridor del agua, al estar sobre la cubierta, no afecta en si está apoyado sobre uno o más módulos.
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.
