Yo creo más bien en pequeñas producciones y de calidad. De esta forma los productos obtenidos serán mas sostenibles y duraderos. Lógicamente estas herramientas no suelen ser tan precisas y robustas como otras altamente desarrolladas por grandes marcas y testeadas por multitud de usuarios, las cuales fácilmente encontrarás en el mercado. Pero como he dicho, todo depende de cómo quieras enfocar tus proyectos y modo de vida.

Estimado Andrés, gracias por escribirnos. Muy buena su observación, pero el mueble en obra que fabricamos en este proyecto es para tapar el radiador que está en desuso, tal como lo explicamos en el video. Como no se puede sacar, preferimos aprovechar ese espacio con un mueble que fuese funcional al espacio. Esperamos haberle ayudado, saludos cordiales.
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]

Particleboard is a manufactured wood product composed of sawdust, wood chips or wood shavings mixed with a resin. This concoction is layered, compressed, subjected to heat and cut to shape, resulting in a sheet material that can be used for a variety of things. It’s often used as shelving or as an underlayment for carpet. Plastic laminate may be applied to both sides to create a product that can be used to create everything from furniture to cabinets to wall paneling. Head into IKEA and you’ll find acres of particleboard.

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.
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.
Como éste material puede utilizarse para construir desde las piezas estructurales hasta elementos decorativos, es perfecto para ingeniarse diseños mixtos donde dos o más usos se combinen en una sola pieza de mobiliario. Para el estudio u oficina de la casa, ¿Qué te parece un escritorio combinado con repisas y gavetas? Una solución práctica, con estilo y a la medida.
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!
Hace unos días Julio me dejó un extenso comentario con su opinión sobre qué le parece eso de aprender carpintería a base de leer blogs y ver vídeos en internet. Pensé que este es un buen tema para una entrada del blog, así que copio y pego su comentario (espero no te importe Julio) y después dejo mi contestación. Veréis que no estamos de acuerdo en todo, supongo que porque nuestros caminos y nuest ...
“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
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]

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.

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.

Para los módulos base, la altura generalmente es de 90cm desde el piso hasta la cubierta. Los módulos deben estar siempre separados del piso por temas de humedad, en una medida que se mueve entre los 10cm hasta los 15cm. Además, existen en el mercado una serie de patas regulables que permiten ajustar los pisos que no están 100% nivelados. Estos finalmente pueden ser cerrados con un zócalo que tiende a ser una pieza de aglomerado o terciado revestido con una formalita. El zócalo debe ir retranqueado mínimo 7,5cm del borde de las puertas. Existe la opción de dejar las patas a la vista aunque no lo recomendamos ya que tiende a ser un espacio donde se acumula polvo.

Al partir de cero en una afición como esta, tiene que haber una fase de acercamiento a la práctica que nos permita descubrir que tan grande es nuestro interés, para luego decidir qué caminos tomar en función de nuestras posibilidades. Y me refiero a las posibilidades económicas (que serán las que sean), recursos disponibles (que dependerán en gran medida de la zona donde vivamos) y las posibilidades que nos de nuestra propia habilidad (que mejorará a medida que adquirimos conocimiento y práctica). Así que creo que el del bricolaje de la madera es un buen comienzo para que poco a poco más gente se anime con la afición a la carpintería y luego muchas de esas personas se animen a recibir clases en cursos realizados por artesanos o en escuelas de carpintería centradas en la enseñanza del trabajo más artesano.
