Pregunta en varias de ellas para saber cuál te ofrece mejor precio, o incluso si te pueden acercar el material a casa. A veces si vives cerca de una zona habitual de reparto no es un problema para ellos.

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]

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.
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.
With the advances in modern technology and the demands of industry, woodwork as a field has changed. The development of Computer Numeric Controlled (CNC) Machines, for example, has made us able to mass-produce and reproduce products faster, with less waste, and often more complex in design than ever before. CNC Routers can carve complicated and highly detailed shapes into flat stock, to create signs or art. Rechargeable power tools speed up creation of many projects and require much less body strength than in the past, for example when boring multiple holes. Skilled fine woodworking, however, remains a craft pursued by many. There remains demand for hand crafted work such as furniture and arts, however with rate and cost of production, the cost for consumers is much higher.

10.- Al aplicar pintura, esmalte o barniz, leer siempre bien las instrucciones del fabricante. En la parte posterior del bote, suelen venir reflejados los tiempos de secado, de repintado, como aplicarlo dependiendo de las superficies, el rendimiento, etc. Todas esas informaciones son muy importantes a la hora de preparar un trabajo de bricolaje en madera.
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.
