I had a request for the dimensions I used. These are a bit ugly because I just pulled the dimensions as I needed them and was indiscriminate of the plane I was on in the rendering and there are duplicates thoughout. My apologies but it was just for my own benefit when I added them. However, I wanted to get them posted as I’m already a day a late with the post.
Bob Babcock, if you view this thread, can you suggest a place to house the actual sketchup file? I don’t know if I want to drop it out there for the larger sketchup community since it is very rough…
Clicking on any of the graphics will take you to my flickr page where you can navigate to higher resolution files more readable and appropriate for printing.
NOTE: These dimensions are relatively accurate but subject to interpretation. The representation of the bars for the pipe clamps are NOT correctly sized. They are drawn at 1/2” rather than the actual outside diameter of the pipe. You should adjust accordingly by changing the size of the supports for the pipes in the well. You should also adjust your dimensions for the back half of the bench (behind the well). I have used a salvaged door that is 1 3/4” thick as opposed to the rest of the stock for the bench which I milled to 1 3/8” thick. Please cross-reference against the FWW woodworking design in their article.
I make no guarantees on these drawings. They are a rough representation for planning purposes only.
