Coming back after being inactive (on the site) for a while.

In a family of five, you need as many coat hangers as clamps in the workshop.

This is the second one I made (the other is here).

I also used some recycled wood:

The board is a piece of low quality pine, the kind workers use in construction to make scaffolds, temporary workbenchs, concrete boxes (don’t even know the name in spanish), etc.
Needed some rough sanding to clean up the dirt, and then stained it using regular anyline (mixing blue and yellow to get a dark green).

The hooks were cut from a leftover piece of lenga used in the windows stools. Nothing fancy here, just cut the hooks with the jigsaw not even trying to make them equal, the idea was to make something quick and rustic.

The hooks are attached by a couple of srews from the back, though some of them are not that stable since the board is a bit cupped (and I don’t have a planer yet). But it fits it purpose.

Bienvenido de nuevo… jaja. Yo tampoco estoy entrando mucho, pero de vez en cuando me pego una vuelta. Muy útil el perchero. La madera de pino que usaste no es de baja calidad, fijate que tiene los anillos juntitos, lo que indica un árbol añoso y de crecimiento lento. Puede ser madera de un tablón antiguo. La palabra que buscás para “concrete boxes” es “formwork”, encofrado en castellano.
Cuando tengas una tabla que no es totalmente plana y quiera colocar algo plano encima, agregale una gotita de silicona o epoxi en las puntas de lo que quieras atornillas asi asienta en dos puntos y queda firme. O lijá la base para que coincida con la curva de la tabla. ;)

Marpintero, gracias por los tips.

La madera es de bastante mala calidad, son las que se usan en obra y no valen dos mangos. Un pino muy blando que corres el riesgo de arrancarle un pedazo si te colgas del perchero, jaja.

Igual con un poco de tintura y cetol, todo se disimula.

Nice wooden hooks. You made it on a hard way, instead buy some metal hooks.

majuvla, I made it on a sunday, under the supervision of the house boss (aka the wife).

You know when they say something in the line of ‘are you going to make that thing or not?’... you better start working and use whatever you have, haha.


Have your say...
