Yes there are so many carpenters around the town, but how do you survive the competition and be the best? The following tips and advices will help you get there.
Perfect your miters
Tuning a miter for an exact fit is often found pretty hard and most of the time ends up I n errors. Have small test pieces and practice till you get the hang of it, and you miter is set to the perfect angle. You know what they say, “practice makes a person perfect”.
Have a trim gun
As pocket friendly as it is to hand nail, the time and the man power spent on it is way too much. Imagine doing the kitchen cabinet carpentry Singapore and having it hand nailed; it is not impossible but there is a huge probability of having splits, predrilling and have its position (that you were holding) change while you were hammering.
Don’t try to remember all the sizes
You think you remember once you say your measurement out loud when you were measuring, but why take the risk? If you do get the sizes messed up, you’ll be having to work on it all over again. Have masking tape sticked to your tape measure and scribble down the shape and measurement, then there is zero chance of you forgetting it.
Try sticking to the pencil instead of the tape
Most of the boards and materials used in carpentry are pretty valuable, so before you go cutting it with your written down measurement, who not be more careful and keep a pencil mark on the place where it needs to be cut?
Have a nipper with you
Make sure you have a pair of nippers in your pocket/pouch when you are dealing with trim carpentry. When you are pulling trims from the wall, use the pair of nippers to pull out the nails.
The toenail trick
When you want to position lumber try the toenail trick; hammer the nail at an angle through the board. This makes a strong joint and is a good way to keep those boards which never stay fixed to a place, fixed.
Make yourself a workbench
Before you start working, take some time and make yourself a miter saw bench. Use the materials you have around you, and you can create it to the same height of your saw bench, it is super convenient.
So, next time you start working o your shed or somewhere out, keep the above tips and advices in your head. You will actually find these quite helpful and very much efficient.
