Sketchup Resources #9: Wudworx Board Maker Plugin

08-12-2010 10:34 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

OK, so it all started when I was trying to write a blog to post as a tutorial for people starting out with SketchUp. halfway into the blog, I decided that a video would probably be easier for me, and easier for others. so I stopped the blog, and started capturing the video. Halfway through the capture I figured that I probably will need to go a little more basic and a bit more in detail in order to be more clear about certain things that I do – so I stopped the video. Then it hit me ...

Staggered Steps Endgrain Cutting Board

06-27-2010 03:56 AM by SPalm | 45 comments »

This is a new style of cutting board (at least new to me). I was thinking about 3D designs on the way home from work last week, after Martyn’s Blog and Steve’s Video. So I came up with this. Kind of Sinister, kind of Tumbling block. Once I drew it out, it reminded me of Staggered Stairs (which are kind of cool), and reminded Karen of the Steps on the Row Houses in Baltimore. So that is how the name came about. I started with 6/4 walnut cut into 10 inch strips. This small length makes ...

Wow, there are a bazillion examples of bandsaw boxes on LumberJocks. I always thought they were complicated and had a hard time finding some really basic instruction. Well, here is a video for all of us bandsaw box newbies! The neat thing about bandsaw boxes is that if you give them away as gifts, people will be amazed and wonder about your woodworking prowess. They will think you are a woodworking god! Little will they know that you are a Mere Mortal and these boxes are totally easy to cr...

Basic grill making

06-08-2009 02:08 AM by mtnwild | 9 comments »

I made a few bread cooling racks and was asked how I did that. This is how. I start with two pieces of wood. One for the width and one for length. Then I cut the slots in each piece. Exactly one half the thickness of the wood. The space between the slots does not matter. I just eye ball it, because it’s too hard for me to do the math. They will fit no matter what spacing you cut the slots, believe me. Random or calculated. ..Then I cut the boards into strips exactly as...
