Here’s my version of a dining table.
My goal was to develop Sketchup Skills to build something more than a rectangular box!
My plan was to put a Canadian twist on the end product.
The inspiration for the dining table was my beautiful maple tree that is in my front yard. The size is magnificent; the colours are glorious.
The pedestal base of the table, with the four “feet”, represents the trunk and roots of the tree. I added the grooves in the base to represent the lines of the bark.
The table top has maple leaves designs in them (pyrography would be the strategy of choice for this).
I added a double decker “lazy susan” to give the piece a 3d – tree appearance and I’ve always wanted a table with a built-in lazy susan. So why not have two?
- it’s more than a rectangular box: success!
- I managed to draw something that kinda looks like a maple leaf: success!
