Woodworking Techniques

Check out the top six woodworking techniques that get frequent use in wood shops.

1. Milling

The milling technique of woodworking is the process of converting rough, raw lumber into smaller wooden blocks. This process involves flattening and smoothing each side of the wood and making the edges even.

2. Jointing & Planing

Jointing and planing is a two-step process in any woodworking project. Here are descriptions of each step. Jointing involves flattening every side and edge of the wood so you can work with even surfaces. On the other hand, planing involves smoothing out the surface area of the wood to ensure no bumps or jagged edges remain. Smooth wood is much easier to work with.

3. Sawing & Cutting

When you get to the sawing and cutting stage, simply cut the large wooden planks into smaller, more manageable pieces. This is the process of removing excess material that you can’t or don’t want to use for your project.

Remember, safety should always come first when working with wood and heavy equipment. Protect yourself by wearing safety goggles or glasses, a respirator, and either earplugs or noise-canceling headphones.

Saw Types

  • Chop saw
  • Hand saw
  • Portable circular saw
  • Table saw
  • Chainsaw

4. Drilling

The drilling stage is just what it sounds like. You use a drill with a drill bit attached to the end to drill holes in the pieces of wood. If you are looking for tips, we recommend taking your time during this stage to avoid damaging drill parts and making the holes bigger or smaller than you intended.

5. Routing

Routing is a technique utilized in the woodworking industry that involves shaping the wood’s sharp and rough edges to make them smooth and even. You can also create grooves and special patterns on the wood’s edges during this process.

6. Clamping

After applying glue to two pieces of wood, you clamp—or hold—them together until the glue dries completely. Thanks to this technique, you don’t have to manually hold the pieces of wood together for up to hours at a time.

Types of Clamps

  • Bar clamps
  • Pipe clamps
  • F-clamps
  • Spring-loaded clamps

How Rotary Phase Converters Power Woodworking Equipment

A rotary phase converter converts electric power from one voltage to another. It’s useful for woodworking projects because they often require a larger power supply than what single-phase electricity offers. Whenever you’re working on bigger woodworking projects, you can use a rotary phase converter to transfer the single-phase power into three-phase power.

3 Reasons To Invest in a Rotary Phase Converter for Your Wood Shop

If you’re tired of woodworking projects taking forever to complete due to sluggish or broken-down equipment, it’s time to invest in a rotary phase converter. Here are three reasons to invest in a rotary phase converter for your wood shop:

1. Efficiency

By supplying three-phase power whenever you need it, rotary phase converters help you complete woodworking projects faster and more accurately than with single-phase power alone.

2. Versatility

Since rotary phase converters convert single-phase power into three-phase power, you can use them for a variety of woodworking techniques and projects. Whether you're powering a lathe, milling machine, or other equipment, it’s a one-size-fits-all power supply.

3. Cheaper Power

Getting more projects done more efficiently with the help of one piece of equipment will noticeably reduce your monthly energy bills. The three-phase power that a rotary phase converter provides is also cheaper than utility three-phase power.
