If woodworking is something you have been considering, then you’ve likely put some mental time into how to begin. It can be hard to figure out what you are doing, but a lot is practice and experimentation. There are so many different kinds of woodworking to learn about.
As with anything involving power tools, safety is the number one concern in woodworking. Be certain to use all tools correctly and observe all safeguards. Do not remove any safety guards from tools because they are there for your protection. If you end up hurt, you won’t be able to work at all.
One good product to use if you are staining your project is a conditioner, to be used before staining. You won’t have any blotches or unevenness when you use a conditioner. These conditioners will smooth out the uneven nature of the wood and allow your stain to penetrate evenly.
Try making reusable sanding blocks by yourself. Start by cutting six blocks from scrap 3/4″ plywood for every sandpaper grit you generally use. Cut them to 2.5″ by 4.75″. Apply spray adhesive to both the blocks and the cork tiles. Stick a block on the cork and cut it flush with a knife. Then, spray your sandpaper with adhesive and apply it to the cork. Lastly, put the sandpaper flush to the cork, labeling all blocks.
If you need to buy or rent tools, include that cost in your budget. You might overlook that when you think about how much wood will cost. If you don’t have a tool, you must keep this in mind.
