Si una cosa está clara para mi es que la madera recuperada tiene un encanto y una personalidad que no se encuentra en la madera nueva. Pero, según para lo que la utilicemos, tenemos que tener cuidado de dejarla bien limpia para ahorrarnos problemas. En estas líneas os doy unos sencillos pasos a seguir para limpiar bien la madera y dejarla lista para crear mil objetos con ella.
Sanding concave molding doesn’t have to be difficult. Find a deep socket that fits the contour of your molding. Wrap a piece of sand- paper around the socket and hold it in place with your fingers. Your sanding will be uniform and the delicate edges of the molding won’t round over. — Eric and Cheryl Weltlich. In this video, Travis talks about his favorite sanding tips.
Popular and easy to work with, cherry is in high demand for its reddish-brown color and ease of staining and finishing. Cherry likely won’t be at the local home center, but should be at a lumberyard for a somewhat expensive price.[12] This hardwood is a very common material for furniture, and is resistant to normal wear-and-tear, but it is best for indoor pieces.[13]
Tocomadera es un proyecto de mobiliario social, desarrollado en el ámbito de las actividades de investigación y extensión de la Escuela Universitaria Centro de Diseño (Farq/UdelaR) de Uruguay. El equipo responsable está compuesto por 5 diseñadores y el proyecto, concebido dentro del formato de diseño de código abierto, es decir, de uso libre y gratuito, apunta a proveer una solución de equipamiento doméstico a programas de asistencia social o a poblaciones ante situaciones de catástrofe.
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.
There are a few things particleboard is NOT. It’s not medium density fiberboard (MDF)—a material with greater density and weight composed of more uniform particles. It’s NOT oriented strand board (OSB), a material composed of large wood chips and strands that’s structurally equivalent to plywood. It does NOT have great nail or screw holding ability, nor is it all that water resistant; water can quickly cause the material to swell and lose structural integrity. But if you need something flat and cheap for use in a dry place, particleboard will do you proud. Learn how to make a plastic laminate tabletop with a particleboard substrate.

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]
Set the table saw fence so the blade is centered on the seam, then push the whole thing through the saw. If the board edges are quite bowed or curvy, you may need a second pass. If so, unscrew the cleats, reclamp the boards across the middle center, then screw on the cleats again. The screws ding up the ends of the boards a little, so cut the boards you’re jointing a bit long, then trim 1/2 in. from each end to remove the screw holes.
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]
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!
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.

While trying to trace an exact copy of the throat plate for my table saw, I came up with this nifty technique using an ordinary pencil. I just shaved my pencil into a half-pencil by carefully grinding it on my belt sander. The flat edge enables my modified pencil to ride straight up along the edge of the template. It also works great for marking and then shaping inlays for my woodworking projects. — Tim Reese. How to cut circles with a band saw.

En 1 triángulo, que será la matriz de los calados, hay que medir el eje o centro de la hipotenusa, que es el lado más largo y que está opuesto al ángulo recto. En este caso el eje es 27 cm. Desde ese punto trazar 2 líneas hacia los catetos, que son los lados menores y que conforman el ángulo recto. Estas 2 líneas llegarán también al centro de los catetos, formando un cuadrado al interior del triángulo. Medir 6,5 mm a cualquier lado de estas líneas, y hacer una segunda marca. El largo de cada calado tiene que ser 10,5 cm y parte desde la hipotenusa

I mix a lot of epoxy in small batches, but I’ve seldom had the right size container on hand. I solved this problem by drilling 1-1/2-in. holes in 2×4 scraps with a Forstner bit. The resulting shallow “cups” allow easy mixing without the risk of spilling. When the holes are used up, I just make a new mixing board. — Bill Wells. Save your takeout utensils to use in the shop!
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.

Finalmente la conclusión que he obtenido de todo esto es que lo que aparentemente era una pérdida de tiempo y dinero se ha materializado en mi modo vida. Sé que con esta filosofía de vida no voy a enriquecerme aunque realmente tampoco me interesa. Posiblemente trabajando para otras empresas y ofreciéndoles mis conocimientos podría ganar más dinero y sobre todo evitarme las complicaciones incluidas de trabajar para uno mismo, pero creo que he conseguido hacer todo lo que puedes ver en mi web precisamente por haber escogido otro camino y prefiero seguir asi. Aunque pueda sonar extraño, he aprendido todo lo que sé gracias a la filosofía del "hazlo tu mismo" y del "no necesitas demasiado para trabajar con calidad".


Carpintería es el nombre del oficio y del taller o lugar donde se trabaja la madera y sus derivados con el objetivo de cambiar su forma física para crear objetos útiles al desarrollo humano como pueden ser muebles para el hogar, marcos de puertas, juguetes, escritorios de trabajo, etc. Carpintero es la persona cuyo oficio es el trabajo en la madera, ya sea para la construcción (puertas, ventanas, etc.) como en mobiliario.
When it comes to woodworking for beginners, I think it’s important to just learn how to use a few of the most essential woodworking tools for beginners. There are so many awesome tools available on the market today, it can be quite overwhelming as well as expensive to try to buy them all and know how to use them. Once you learn the basics of the most essential tools you will be able to start building in no time and feel comfortable learning any other new tools in the future.
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]
3- Una vez he terminado el modelo, realizo todas las presentaciones acotadas, láminas Pdf, fotos y despieces que podéis ver en mis planos. Si aún no los has visto, puedes visitar la sección de planos gratis de mi web y descargar alguno de ellos. La experiencia que me han dado mis anteriores trabajos me ayuda a comprender lo que es necesario y lo que no lo es para que un usuario con conocimientos medios en carpinteria y poca herramienta pueda llegar a realizar cualquiera de los proyectos.
Ahora que tenemos el asunto de la seguiridad solucionado y los planos en la mano, por dónde debemos empezar la construcción? Bueno, creo que primero deberías familiarizarte con los planos y con el proyecto,. Esto puede llevar unos días de meditación. Deberías visualizar mentalemente el proyectos, por dónde empezar, qué herramientas serán necesarias y qué piezas cortar y ensamblar primero. Normalmente podrás guiarte por mis vídeos, aunque puede que encuentres otros métodos que se adapten mejor a tu forma de trabajar o a tus herramientas.
The rubber cushion on my old palm sander was wearing thin around the edges. Because of its age, I couldn’t find a replacement pad. As I was drinking my beverage with a foam can cover around it, I realized I could cut the foam to fit the sander and glue it on. I peeled off the old pad, cleaned the metal base and attached the foam with contact cement. Works for clamp-on as well as stick-on sanding squares! You can find can covers at discount and convenience stores. — Allen J. Muldoon
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.
En el caso de módulos superiores se tiende a trabajar con dos medidas: 30cm o 35cm. Ambas servirán para los distintos propósitos a los cuales están siendo destinados. Es importante consideran, en caso de utilizar un módulo superior para el microondas, que el fondo de esta debe ser mínimo 35cm de modo que este tenga algo de holgura. En el caso de utilizar un módulo con una profundidad de 30cm para microondas, su fondo se deberá extender mínimo unos 5cm.
Esta casita, construida con mucho cariño y dedicación, me costó mucho más de un año de trabajo desde su diseño, hasta su construcción. Utilizo madera de dm de 10 mm de grosor. En esta foto se ve con la broca de pala inicio los agujeros de las ventanas, que posteriormente cortaré con la sierra de calar. Voy construyendo toda la estructura que conformará la casita. Esta es una parte importante ...
