WoodWorks
« on: March 19, 2015, 11:01:06 AM »
i feel the urge to go into wood works - since from long time ago  :silly:
i remember my dad making a stool & a 2 person bench that lasted for ages & now i want to DIY a lot of stuff in teh house.

I think there are techniques needed so as not to shatter or chip off the wood when making slots & what ever goes into those slots. I remember when we had a project in HS,  every time I chisel a part of the wood a whole chip falls off  >:(   

So who's into it? what are the basics & common tools needed?
care to share your work & technique?
what is love? baby don't hurt me, no more.

i also love to make DIY wood stuffs!
medyo hirap akong gumamit ng wood saw lalo na pag manipis yung kahoy. mas sanay ako sa lagaring bakal.
ilang beses na din akong nakagawa ng kulungan ng love birds. para mas tumagal yung project much better
lakihan ng konti yung size ng mga kahoy para mas matibay, minsan kasi paglalagay palang ng pako eh pumuputok
na yung maliit o mapinis na kahoy, nagsisimula palang sira na agad yung mga joining points.

The Japanese cultural center at their embassy here has some great books on Japanese joinery. It's amazing how they can construct houses using only interlocking joints.

woodworking... i believe it's a slyly expensive hobby. From the gathering of tools (makita and bosch are good) to accumulating materials like wood, plywood, acrylic etc. (oh you need acrylic and such for making jigs.) Before you know it, you're spending more than say, guitar collecting or mountain biking.

Plus you need a (garage) space as one's man-cave.   

People who are into (metalworking and woodworking) DIY used to frequent tipidpc and pinoyhandyman. Nowadays there is a small group of tool connoisseurs at cab1net.com (one needs to sign up - free- for the site to open up.) The people there have bandsaws, jointers, even CNC just for fun.

surplus? abot kaya pero parang in the long run sayang ang pera sa ozito, aeg, etc. Ang mas mabuti IMHO ay pumunta sa HMR pioneer at sucat. The rows of hardware stores in T. Alonzo street (binondo,) and also  dasmarinas st. (millionare enterprises for makita and panda for european tools in an airconditioned store.) LYS and yale in recto have a lot on display.

Pero join ka din sa cab1net, people there are friendly and helpful.

thanks altec for the info, pansin ko rin nga na halos konti nalang ang price difference ng bago sa mga surplus shops so I guess i'll stick to New Bosch or Ryobi. nice to know that there are some who are into this hobby. i'll start to built an arsenal of DIY tools. I already have a Dremel, drill & jig saw.

anyways kami ang may gawa ng maraming surplus dyan na mostly galing ausie hehe

Sir Wheelee...kung mabanda ka sa Angeles city...meron bilihan ng mga gamit para sa mga wood projects...screws, dowel, diff kinds of glue....meron rin mga powertools. Dito nabili mga furniture shops ng mga gamit nila. Sa balibago area near Rosas at Johnny's supermarket.

Then if you are into palochina....sa Henson st, near NCR....magagandang klase tinda nila...malinis at walang sira mga kahoy.

@altec....thank you sir sa cab1net =)

Good to know na meron din mahilig mag diy wood projects. Kakatipid ko...naka diy nko halos lahat ng gamit sa bahay haha

@Gilbert thanks for the info, yes mas malapit kami sa angeles dito lang kami Telabastagan. nice to know na meron din pala dyan sa mismong pampanga na makukunan ng tools.

noong HS kami bumibili kami ng palochina doon sa may malapit yata sa La Pieta ba yun, anyways check out ko yung sa Henson St., NCR halos malapit sa Marisol yun diba? Kainis lang kasi maiksi ang bakasyon hehehe

BTW what's the property of palochina? does it easily warp or crack? I plan to make some shelves with those L brackets using either plywood or palo. did a few in my sons room but a few years later they warped a bit, I used Solid wood 4x1 feet to put his stuff on.

you know this place?

palo china? "palo" means wood in spanish language so it just means wood(-from-)china. Which isn't much the case really. You have palo escrito (wood "written" from mexico, because the grain look like text) Palosanto de rio (brazil, which is now banned.)

Internationally, palochina is termed "SPF"  or spruce, pine, fir. Palochina could be any of those three because the characteristics are close together. Tho am aware (douglas) fir is the whitest.

I get mine at 20 bucks a kilo in laguna. Came from industrial parks there. Do beware of nails when breaking them down, ruins jigsaw blades or your other tools.

Hindi naman ma crack ang palochina (softwood) compared sa local hardwoods. Sa palochina pwede ka pang mag screw without pilot holes, sa HW you're asking for cracks.

Here is what altec is doing in his evenings. Got long ways to go when it comes to side bending.

Wood when heated (and sometimes wetted prior to create steam) yields and conforms to a hot pipe. But it's not easy. Too low a temp and the wood will crack; too high a temp or too long will scorch the wood. I'm still learning how to judge by the sizzle, the scent, and the feel of the wood in my hands as i try to conform it to the desired shape. Fun stuff, but also frustrating for a first timer.

Apart from that, am also studying the geometry between the neck angle and bridge top height that makes for good string height/action.

Hirap. nanga-ngapa pa but am learning from my mistakes. Practice build ko muna to which i'll destroy in the future.





Am building in the spanish tradition of using a "solera" and a go bar deck.



Am just starting out (evening/weekend warrior) and i hate it that i don't have the skills yet to be where it needs to be Grrrr... you can see 'round the web people with their immaculate builds.

Woodworking is a vast spectrum. Scroll-sawing, furniture making, (and as we are in the 21st century now,) cnc, etc. One picks a path where their passion points them. (My guitar teacher back then warned me tho that if i do this, i should be prepared to be poor LOL, and he's prolly right.) Altec just do this for a hobby, but he aims that his output be topnotch...as of now he is revealing his first endeavors of it.

i necro ko lang to. Ang laki ng pinoy woodworking groups sa fb; there are 4 or so. The biggest, in a matter of months, now has 5k members. Search nyo na lang. Pati bentahan ng tools. There are deals to be had too. Sarap pagbibilhin ng mga tools ng mga OFWs which i have done :) . (Instead of going to the pawnshop, looks like fb is the newer way to convert some "napagpundaran" into some cold cash come crunch time.)
