Wood Whisperer Out Feed Table #1: Inspiration, Research, and SketchUp Drawing

11-29-2009 06:13 AM by Brad_Nailor | 16 comments »

Well I have been so focused on getting my new old Unisaw tweaked and settled in it’s new home I forgot that I need some essentials for it’s operation. I wanted to fire it up and try and cut some big slabs of birch butcher block to test its power, but I realized one thing…they are big pieces and I don’t have an out feed table! So, basically I cant cut anything bigger than 10 inches…and what fun is that? So I was browsing through the projects and came upon this pro...

Mom's Quilt Rack #1: Plans

11-29-2009 12:32 AM by imelmer | 5 comments »

I’m making a quilt rack for my mother. She didn’t want anything specif other than a wall mounted shelf with room to hang and display 2 quilts, so I just found some projects others have made and will be adding my own style. Hopefully she will like it. This is a very basic project, but I’ve wanted to learn more about how to use SketchUp, so I took the time to draw up some plans.
