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.
- Flat blade screwdriver
- Phillips screwdriver
- Small diameter drill
- Screwdriver bit
- Painter's knife
- Wood dough
- Sanding wedge
- Fine sandpaper (240)
- Vinyl glue
- Carpenter's square
- Basic screwing
- Glued-screwed corner assembly
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...
A. Slotted screw with screwdriver
1. Start the screwing with the finger so that the thread takes in the wood.
2. Screw with a flat blade screwdriver.
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.
2. Hold the screw by hand and start screwing to the machine. Make sure that the screwdriver tip exactly matches the imprint of the screw head.
3. Screw on the machine until the machine is disengaged. Be careful not to damage the boring of the screw head at the end of screwing.
C. Flooding of the screw head
1. If you need to drown the screw heads, mill the screw location before screwing.
2. Screw it to the machine until the head drowns beneath the surface of the wood.
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
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.
4. To avoid cracking the wood and making screwing easier, drill a pilot hole in both pieces that are smaller than the diameter of the screw.
5. Mill the hole in the hole so that the screw head can be drowned out.
6. Prime the screwing by hand. Screw on the machine. Push the head of the screw under the surface of the wood.
7. Screw in the machine, then complete the tightening until it locks with the screwdriver.
8. Top with the woodpulp, sand after drying.
