Hola Lumberjocks! Este es mi primer post, a disfrutar! I’m too tired to translate. Maybe another day… The only thing in english I’ll say is that the community and the website are very nice and inspiring. I’m glad I found it and joined. (translation added to the end, thanks to Kaleb)

Muestro un par de fotos de mi tallercito, que por el momento está instalado en el living, jaja. Por suerte mi compañera es copada y me empuja a continuar incluso en estas condiciones, en parte porque sabe que en el futuro nos podremos hacer nuestros propios muebles.

La mesa no tiene nada de especial, salvo el valor sentimental: es la segunda cosa de madera que construyo. Lo anterior fue una estantería, que no terminé. Pero gracias a esa estantería empecé a ver que no estaba tan fuera de mi alcance trabajar con la madera y elaborar cosas útiles. La estructura está hecha con eucaliptus saligna que es bastante liviano pero los dos bloques de MDF de la parte superior vuelven la mesa ultrapesada, jaja. Recién recubrí una parte en chapadur-hardboard. Los bordes siguen feos. Hace poquito compré un Incra Original Jig, para ensayar la posibilidad de importar herramientas. Llegó perfecto, quizás en el futuro compre otras cosas que no se consiguen por estos lados. Como ven, ya está instalado.

Aca hay un detalle del anexo de la mesa, donde instalé la fresadora usando unos tirantes de pino. La idea original de esta disposición es de un sitio alemán que encontré por ahí…

Espero compartir mis avances. Recién estoy empezando, pero quizás estas pequeñas cosas sirvan para entusiasmar a otros a iniciarse en este hobby y en la filosofía del Hazlo Tu Mismo (DIY). ¡Un abrazo!

A couple of pictures of my little shop, which at the moment is installed in the living room, haha. Luckily my partner has been taken over and pushes me to continue even under these conditions, in part because she knows that in the future we can make our own furniture.

The table has nothing special, except the sentimental value: it is the second thing I build that is made of wood. The first one was a shelf that I did not finish. But thanks to that shelf I began to see that it was not so out of reach to work with wood and make useful things. The structure, made of eucalyptus saligna, is fairly light but the two pieces of MDF that shape the table top make it ultraheavy again, haha. Recently I covered a part in chapadur-hardboard. The edges are unsightly. Just recently bought an Incra Original Jig to test the possibility of importing tools. It arrived perfectly, maybe in the future I will buy other things that are not accessible around here. As you see, it is already installed.

Here’s a detail of the extension to the table, where I installed the router using pine braces. The original idea of this arrangemet is from a German site I found out somewhere …

I hope to share my progress. I’m just getting started, but perhaps these little things serve to encourage others to take up this hobby and DIY philosophy. A hug!

Muy bueno trabajo mi amigo. Bienvenidos a Lumberjocks.

By the way I’m terrible at Spanish, but google helps with the translation, so feel free to write in whatever easiest for you.

Hola Kova, estuve de viaje, por eso no comenté nada. Ese Matthias es un genio. Hay varios tipos interesantes en la web, este también está bueno, seguramente lo conocés: http://ibuildit.ca (en youtube podés buscarlo como John Heisz).

Yo trato de hacer algunas cosas, ya veremos cómo salen. Tengo un cepillo eléctrico que quiero fijar con unos patines, para ver si logro enderezar los tirantes torcidos que me venden, ja. Ya veremos si funciona, pero justo ahora me salió la posibilidad de ir a laburar en otra ciudad y casi no me puedo dedicar a la madera. O no pasa nada, o pasa todo junto. Un abrazo!
