Figure out a simple setup for your woodworking space. You don’t need a fancy and expensive workshop or garage to start woodworking. In fact, we’ve never had a workshop or garage (though I do dream of having one haha). In our current town home, we always setup a temporary workshop table in our backyard with a pair of sawhorses and a plywood board from the home improvement store.

Se propone en este taller teórico-práctico un acercamiento a la técnica del collage analógico desde la experimentación, la reflexión y el juego. Se realizarán múltiples ejercicios bajo supuestos distintos, haciendo especial hincapié en cómo abordar e ilustrar ideas y conceptos utilizando este recurso. Desde las técnicas más sencillas a las más transgresoras, pasando por la geometría, el Dadaísmo, el ensamblaje o el collage experimental. Todo ello entre montones de revistas y fotografías antiguas. 


Another important factor to be considered is the durability of the wood, especially in regards to moisture. If the finished project will be exposed to moisture (e.g. outdoor projects) or high humidity or condensation (e.g. in kitchens or bathrooms), then the wood needs to be especially durable in order to prevent rot. Because of their oily qualities, many tropical hardwoods such as teak and mahogany are popular for such applications.[9]
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.
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.
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.
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!
Estimados, si bien el muy lindo el mueble, hubo un un error garrafal con respecto al radiador, esta bien la separación en la parte superior del mueble para la salida de aire caliente, pero para que esto suceda se debe saber que estos equipos funcionan por circulación de aire ( aire frío de la habitación pasa por abajo y sale caliente por arriba) un corte en la parte de abajo falto
Cedars are strong, aromatic softwoods that are capable of enduring outdoor elements, the most common of which is the Western Red Cedar. Western Red Cedar can sustain wet environments without succumbing to rot, and as a result is commonly used for outdoor projects such as patios, outdoor furniture, and building exteriors. This wood can be easily found at most home centers for a moderate price.[12]

Iron-on edge-banding is a quick way to cover up an edge on plywood. Trimming the excess, however, is tricky. I’ve tried edge-banding trimmers, but I find the results are unpredictable. With the trimmers I’ve tried, it wasn’t easy to change the direction of the cut to suit the grain direction of the edge-banding. If you’re cutting against the grain, you’re likely to tear out a chunk of your new edge-banding. Instead, I use a wide, sharp chisel. This way, I can read the grain direction and trim accordingly. Angle the chisel slightly and go slow, raising the back corner of the chisel just enough so that it doesn’t dig into the plywood veneer. Smooth the corner with a sanding block after trimming. Check out this amazing edge band veneering project!


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 ...
“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
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.
Bueno aca termina el post, y les quiero dejar un anuncio muy importante para el que esta interesado en el tema y es de Santa Fe Capital, se trata sobre la escuela Industrial ubicada en la calle Junin que tiene un taller de carpinteria que funciona a la noche donde se hacen diversos trabajos y estan muy buenos, el tiempo es de 2 horas, creo que es de 8 a 10 Lunes,Miercoles y Viernes, si estas interesado podrias averiguar para inscribirte, no es tan caro y se hacen muchisimos trabajos.
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
Exceptional talent and professionalism. I wanted to gift my husband with a custom table top for an e...levating desk that was not made of real wood. While our order was delayed by uncontrollable circumstances (warping wood, machine failure, etc.) the quality of the final piece was beyond what we were expecting. In addition, Vance Custom Woodworking reassembled the entire desk at no extra cost to ensure the integrity of the beautiful new top. I would, and have, happily recommended friends and family to come here for any custom woodwork requests. See More
1ª Parte: el participante traerá a mi taller un objeto feo, pasado de moda, roto, que ya no utilice y allí, pondremos en práctica la máxima: “todo se puede cambiar” Trabajaremos en dos grupos, uno el día 2 de abril y otro el 3 de abril, y pondremos a prueba nuestra creatividad para, aplicando diferentes técnicas de restauración, convertirlo en un objeto funcional y muy bonito que volverá de nuevo a nuestras vidas.
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. 
Con esto conseguimos dos cosas, por un lado desinfectar bien el material y por otro combatir posibles hongos que tenga la madera por haber estado a la intemperie. Si tienes una vaporeta es también aconsejable utilizarla después para profundizar más en la limpieza, pero si le aplicas bien la lejía puedes ahorrarte comprar una. Y eso es todo, déjala secar y ya está lista para su uso.
Second, learning how to read lumber dimensions, like knowing what 1×2 or 2×12 actually means, is really important. Understanding softwood lumber dimensions will help you to read woodworking build plans, shop for lumber, and understand the general measurements for your projects. I’ve provided a simple explanation to lumber sizes along with a free lumber size chart printable here!

Fir, also known as Douglas Fir, is very inexpensive and common at local home centers. It has a characteristic straight, pronounced grain with a red-brown tint. However, its grain pattern is relatively plain and it does not stain well, so Fir is commonly used when the finished product will be painted. While commonly used for building, this softwood would also be suitable for furniture-making as well.[12]
I know this seems really simple and you may already know how to read a tape measure so just hear me out on this one! Often times with woodworking you need to make exact measurements and cuts and it’s rarely pretty even numbers like 15 inches or 15 1/2 inches. It’s usually like 15 5/8 inches or 15 9/16 inches. So, really knowing how to read a tape measure in its entirety is important. And I’ve created a quick post on how to read a tape measure the easy way along with a helpful free printable.

My planer blasts shavings all over the shop floor. I decided to make my own dust chute from 4-in. PVC sewer pipe (which has thinner walls than regular Schedule 40 pipe) and a couple caps. I cut a slit in the pipe and used a heat gun to soften the plastic. That allowed me to open the slit. (Heating PVC releases fumes; ventilation is critical.) I then drilled holes in the flap and screwed it to the planer housing. Finally, I cut a 2-1/2- in. hole in one of the end caps to accept my shop vacuum hose. Works great! — Luis Arce. Here’s what else you can do with PVC pipe.
