Sketchup Shorts #4: Virtual Materials II - Tiling it Seamlessly

03-10-2009 04:33 PM by PurpLev | 6 comments »

So a point was raised in my previous installment of this blog regarding tiling appearance of materials (once you assign your custom material to your model and scale it up you’d see the same material pattern repeat over and over again with distinct horizontal and vertical lines (the seams) that separate those repetitions. This tutorial will show you how to eliminate those seams from your materials, and make it possible to seamlessly tile your material over larger areas. I will show yo...

Tools #1: Proper plane preparation prevents problems, pal

03-10-2009 03:21 PM by TampaTom | 5 comments »

One of my most favorite movies of all times is Raiders of the Lost Ark. Who could ever forget Indiana Jones trekking around the world to find the lost Ark of the Covenant, battling bad guys left and right while taking a beating that would kill just about any mortal person? In many ways, I see myself as a little bit of that adventurer/archaeologist when I start hunting down old hand tools. (OK, it’s my childhood fantasy to run around exotic marketplaces with a bull whip and a brown crusher ...

Windsor Institute- Nantucket Fan Back

03-10-2009 04:14 AM by F Dudak | 4 comments »

Hello all, Just wanted to touch base with you all and let you know that I am in NH taking another class with Mike Dunbar in beautiful snowy Hampton. I arrived from PA in the early evening yesterday after 60 degree weather only to wake up to a snowy morning. The funny part is that I loaded my road bike into my car in case I would get some riding in on the beautiful coast…not. We worked on the seat and the crest today and I believe we will be finishing the seat and legging up the chai...

Small Cabinet #12: Almost home -

03-10-2009 03:40 AM by Betsy | 3 comments »

Well I found my camera. I was at work and it hit me where I put it. I’m terrible about laying things like that down in odd places and then spend hours looking for it. Anyhow – I’m making progress on my cabinet. I’ve got all the door parts milled, sanded and have started the finish work. This first shot shows the door panels with a coat of finish. The finish is Minwax semi-gloss with a 40% mix of naptha and 1/3 cap of Japan dryer. I did not come up with that formu...

Is is a Web or Blog?

03-10-2009 02:36 AM by closetguy | 4 comments »

It’s difficult to type right now because I decided to run my bandsaw blade part of the way through my right middle finger Sunday afternoon. Thank goodness it was just the ¼” blade. I hate having to sand blood off a project. I just went through a huge web site overhaul this week. It was a big decision to commit the time, but the results were worth the effort. When I started Appalachian Craftsmen last year, I needed to get an e-commerce site up rather quickly. I flashed back seven year...

The First Step In Making A Wooden Utensil #1: Choosing The Right Piece Of Wood.

03-10-2009 01:59 AM by osageman | 8 comments »

I can be reached at: osagemann@yahoo.com I will have the photo of the spoon I did the “test” with on my page tonight. It looks lighter in the photo (because of the camera flash) It all starts with the choosing the right piece of wood for the wooden utensil you are wanting to make. BUT, the MOST important consideration is, asking your wife what would suit her best, taking into consideration the size of her hand (not yours) I’m sure if you make it to fit “your ...

Shop done. Let's build something #4: Doors made!

03-10-2009 12:41 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

Ok, this was nerve wracking but by measuring everything 30 times I managed to make two doors for the corner cabinet and they seem to have come out okay without any major faux pas. My first raised panel doors. The new bosch router and freud panel bits worked out fine. My homemade router table got it’s first serious use too. Way cool. This is a real rush. Exploded View and a dry fit Exploded Close-up Dry fit Close-up Another angle
