A Brief about Me

Hi readers, I am Brendan. I am in the woodworking field since last 15 years.

Over these years, I have encountered nearly all aspects of woodworking field and have always faced various real time issues related to this industry.

It is surprising to me that I had many times struggled to get the right information that will go a long way in any woodworking project.

So, I decided to bring all of these issues plus my work experience to my blog, Woodworkinganswers.com.

If you are planning to embark on a woodworking project, then you might have come across these questions such as:

  1. What are the right tools that I need for a particular woodworking project?
  2. How do I buy these tools?
  3. How do I correctly choose timber for my woodworking project?
  4. How do I glue wood properly?
  5. How do I paint and finish my furniture or project?

I have faced these issues in my lifetime and today I am trying my best to cover some of the most important topics in this niche, which include the following:

1. Wood Working Tools

How many woodworking tools do you know about or have you ever used? A handful or plenty of tools?

Build your woodworking tools knowledge by exploring my questions and answers provided here on my site.

2. Types of Timber Used

There are two primary types of timber; softwood and hardwood. And each type of timber has its own characteristics, functions, and uses.

Getting to know more about the timber type can really help you in deciding the best kind of timber for your woodworking project.

Here, I have covered timber in detail just like any other woodworking topic.

3. Wood Gluing

To be able to get the most out of wood gluing, you really need to know the components of this adhesive substance, how it works and how to effectively utilize it.

There are generally two types of glues for wood i.e natural glue and synthetic glue. The former is made from organic sources like dextrin (vegetable starch), animal by-products like bones and natural resins.

These natural materials are sometimes called “bio-adhesives”. The latter, on the other hand, is made up of a synthetic material known as “binder”, which gives them their sticky characteristics.

Nevertheless, some of the best wood glue brands on the market are Gorilla and Titebond. You will get plenty of detailed information regarding this topic on this blog.

4. Wood Painting and Finishing

How much will wood painting and finishing cost me?

A question many people will ask themselves when budgeting for their upcoming woodworking project.

Wood painting and finishing can account for about 5% to 30% of the cost of your entire project. So be sure to treat it as an important cost factor.
