Hello, dear readers and homemade craftsmen!
Each craftsman has his own tricks and secrets that are acquired with experience.
In this article, the author of the YouTube channel “UWOODWORKER” will tell you about several tricks in the carpentry business.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2021-07/1627342451_sv-001.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> These techniques are very simple, and often found.
– Boards, trim Chipboard
– Self-tapping screws for wood, nails
– Double-sided tape.
Tools used by the author.
– A set of crowns for wood and metal
– Drills with depth stops
– Hot melt glue gun
– Circular saw
– Saw blades
– Square, ruler.
Suppose you need to align both sides of the board, to make them parallel to each other.
Usually this problem is solved on a jointer and a planer, but what if there are none in the workshop?
The first trick will come in handy when leveling the planks on a circular saw with a parallel stop.
This method is suitable for processing boards that are not very wide (with a width slightly less than the full overhang of the saw blade ).
To do this, you need to fix the board to be processed on a flat strip of chipboard or MDF, having previously aligned both edges square.
Parts are connected to each other using a hot glue gun .
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2021-07/1627342453_sv-022.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> Now, pressing the panel against the parallel stop, you can align the first face.
Next, the board is separated from the lining, pressed against the parallel stop by the treated surface, and the second side can be aligned.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2021-07/1627342455_sv-033.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> The second technique may seem too simple – after all, everyone can reliably nail a couple of boards together?
So, you need to connect two boards at an angle of 90 degrees (for example, when assembling a simple bench).
For example, a master hammers three nails at a right angle.
Not very good enough great effort, and the board can be torn off even with one hand – the nails are simply pulled out.
If you hammer the central nail vertically, and a couple of others at an angle, then the connection will be much stronger.
When checking the author even put a block under the board to be torn off to get a lever. As a result, the board burst, but never came off.
The third interesting technique .
It often happens that a self-tapping screw is very difficult to unscrew if the thread is torn off, and it scrolls in the wood.
Here another self-tapping screw will come to the rescue, which must be screwed in at an angle tangentially to the axis of the stuck.
The fourth tip .
You have deteriorated a small area of linoleum or carpet ?
In order to replace it almost without leaving a trace, you will need a cut of the same material.
First of all you need to put the flap over the damaged area, and combine the flap patterns with the main covering. It is important to remember the “coordinates” of the damaged area.
Then the flap is fixed with tape around the perimeter.
Holding the knife blade strictly at right angles to the surface, and pressing it against a metal ruler (or level, rule), a square cut is made.
The damaged piece is replaced with the just cut one, and the seam is practically invisible.
It remains to carefully glue the joints, or put reinforced tape under them.
The fifth tip concerns screwing screws into wood.
If you do not make pilot holes with a thin drill before screwing in long screws, then screws are very difficult, and sometimes impossible, to screw in completely.
If you put some soap on the threads before screwing in, the process will be easy and successful.
< a href = "https://usamodelkina.ru/uploads/posts/2021-07/1627342470_sv-121.jpg" rel = "prettyPhoto"> In addition, unscrewing the “oiled” self-tapping screw will also be easy.
Sixth tip .
You need to mark a circle, but you didn't have a compass at hand?
You can use simple scissors instead.
One eyelet is put on a self-tapping screw screwed into the part, and the blades are connected together with a piece masking tape or tape.
It remains to insert the tip pencil in the second eye, and mark up.
Seventh trick .
When drilling holes with a wood crown , a centering drill should make a small hole in the workpiece, and then the crown itself works.
And what to do if in place drilling already has a hole that prevents the centering drill from locking?
In this case, cut out the disc with the same crown and screw it to the workpiece with self-tapping screws.
Such a guide will prevent the crown from shifting to the side when drilling.
Eighth trick .
Surely, this technique is known to most readers.
When drilling holes to a specific depth, craftsmen use drilling depth rings .
Of course, such devices are not always available, and as a depth indicator, you can simply wind a piece of electrical tape around the drill.
Thank the author for a selection of simple and useful tricks of the joinery.
Good mood, good health, and interesting ideas to everyone!
