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.
Softwood is most commonly found in the regions of the world with lower temperatures and is typically less durable, lighter in weight, and more vulnerable to pests and fungal attacks in comparison to hardwoods. They typically have a paler color and a more open grain than hardwoods, which contributes to the tendency of felled softwood to shrink and swell as it dries.[9] Softwoods usually have a lower density, around 25-37lb/cu ft, which can compromise its strength.[9] Density, however, does vary within both softwoods and hardwoods depending on the wood's geographical origin and growth rate. However, the lower density of softwoods also allows it to have a greater strength with lighter weight. In the United States, softwoods are typically cheaper and more readily available and accessible.[9] Most softwoods are suitable for general construction, especially framing, trim, and finish work, and carcassing.[10][9]
When cutting full sheets with my circular saw, I use plastic shelving units as sawhorses. The height is just right and by using three of them, I can make cuts in any direction and the plywood is fully supported. And because the shelving units are made of plastic, I can cut right into them without worrying that they’ll damage my saw blade. Plastic shelves are available for $20 at home centers. — John Tinger. Check out these tips for making long cuts with a circular saw.

Cutting sandpaper is a quick way to dull your scissors or utility knife blade. Instead, I fastened a hacksaw blade to the edge of my workbench. I slipped a washer behind the blade at each of the mounting holes so a sheet of sandpaper to easily slides in behind the blade. I fold the paper where I want to cut, just as a reference. — Kim Boley. Try some of these storage solutions!

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
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.

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!

No se puede realizar ningún trabajo por pequeño que sea sino se cuenta al menos con un mínimo de herramientas. Existe en el mercado una gran variedad de herramientas de un mismo tipo para cada trabajo. Sin embargo el aficionado debe sacar el mejor partido posible a una herramienta para realizar varios trabajos, porque sería absurdo que tenga que equiparse con todas las variedades de: Martillo, formón, alicates, taladro, etc. Como máximo y para trabajos muy específicos deberá completar su equipo con una herramienta especializada para este tipo de trabajo, porque en ese caso la adquisición quedará justificada por el rendimiento específico que esta le proporcionará. Independientemente de cualquier herramienta especializada el aficionado precisará de un equipo mínimo a cuyos elementos deberásacar el mayor provecho. A continuación se describen las herramientas básicas para poder realizar trabajos de carpintería


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]

Es la pieza de Pladur que se coloca entre la balda inferior y el suelo. Antes de instalarlo, es conveniente colocar unos calzos en el hueco existente entre el suelo y la balda inferior, con el fin de reforzar su consistencia. Tomar las medidas desde el suelo hasta el borde superior de la balda y trasladarlas a una placa de cartón yeso de 1 cm de grosor. Cortar con un cutter.
Some types of wood filler can be hard to get off your hands after they dry, especially if you use your fingers to push it into small cracks and holes. When that happens, I reach for fine grit sandpaper and sand it off my fingers. It’s great for removing dried-on polyurethane glue and canned foam from your hands, too. — Chris James. We’ve got great solutions for removing super glue, too.
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.
En relación a estas configuraciones, es importante entender cómo funcionan las diferentes circulaciones. El triángulo de trabajo debe mantenerse en una relación fluida y se deben evitar las circulaciones cruzadas cuando hay más de una persona trabajando. En este punto siempre es bueno hacerse la pregunta: ¿cómo te gustaría a ti usar tu cocina? o ¿qué aspectos son los que más me incomodan o me gustan de mi cocina actual? De este modo podremos diseñar con sentido nuestros espacios.
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 comenzar a diseñar y a desarrollar las planimetrías, se debe tener presente que la cocina no es simplemente la unión al azar de una serie de muebles y artefactos, sino que está formada a partir de módulos que deben seguir una lógica de fabricación. Si el diseño no es claro o no sigue ciertos parámetros razonables para ser construido, se pueden generan conflictos entre el arquitecto y el mueblista.

Simply soak a washcloth in water and ring it out a bit so it’s not sopping wet. Put the damp washcloth on the affected area. The water will wick through the wood, and that’s fine. Now, with your iron on its highest setting, place it on the damp washcloth over the affected area, and make small movements back and forth and in circles. Press down firmly and continue until your wash cloth is dry. It won’t take long to evaporate. At this point, the wood fibers are absorbing the water and should expand back to where they were originally. Continue this process and repeat by adding more water until the dents rise up to be flush with the rest of the material.


Pocket screws create a solid, simple-to-make joint. Because of the size and visibility of the hole, it’s usually located in areas that are concealed or rarely seen (though special plugs can be used to fill the holes.) Craig Sommerfeld, founder of The Kreg Tool Company, is credited with popularizing pocket screw joinery in the 1980s. The company today is the leader in creating the jigs, clamps and screws used to create pocket screw joints. Learn how to use a pocket screw jig in woodworking projects.
Examples of Bronze Age wood-carving include tree trunks worked into coffins from northern Germany and Denmark and wooden folding-chairs. The site of Fellbach-Schmieden in Germany has provided fine examples of wooden animal statues from the Iron Age. Wooden idols from the La Tène period are known from a sanctuary at the source of the Seine in France.
