Joining wooden pieces by screwing

Screwing is one of the basic techniques for assembling or reinforcing the assembly of pieces of wood. They allow a solid, effective assembly and which, in certain cases, can be dismountable (but hardly remountable leaving the screws in the same place). The existing screws limit the risk of cracking wood, but do not always dispense with a drill hole or with a small wick.

Necessary material

  • Pencil
  • gimlet
  • Clamp
  • Flat blade screwdriver
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Screwdriver-unscrewing
  • Hammer
  • Small diameter drill
  • Strawberry
  • Screwdriver bit
  • Painter's knife
  • Wood dough
  • Sanding wedge
  • Fine sandpaper (240)
  • Vinyl glue
  • Brush
  • Carpenter's square

Steps

  1. Basic screwing
  2. Glued-screwed corner assembly

Basic screwing

Realization of a pilot hole with the tendril

Realization of a pilot hole with the tendril

1. Mark the location of the pencil screw with a cross. Make a pilot hole with a twist to facilitate the setting of the screw in the wood, but also to limit the risk of cracking...

B. Self-tapping screw with Phillips head, screwdriver
1. The threading of the cruciforma-forcing screws can be done by striking lightly on the head with a hammer.

C. Flooding of the screw head
1. If you need to drown the screw heads, mill the screw location before screwing.

3. Top with wood dough. If the hole is large, wait for the drying, then complete the filling. Better to do it several times to avoid cracking of the wood pulp.

4. Allow the woodstalk to dry completely. Sand it with sandpaper and a sanding block.

Glued-screwed corner assembly

Gluing the assembly

1. Put glue in the assembly. Spread it with a brush. No need to put a lot of it.

2. Move the two pieces closer together. Guide yourself on a carpenter's square to guarantee, here, a 90° assembly.

3. Materialize the location of the screw by drawing a cross with a pencil.
