Small Cabinet #10: Got the raised panels done today.

03-07-2009 02:56 AM by Betsy | 5 comments »

I took a vacation day from work today and spent a glorious day in the shop with a side trip to the lumber yard. Got quite a lot done on the cabinets. Took the door panels out of the clamps, cleaned them up, got them sized to fit and then routed them. They are not perfect, but I think I did OK. This next shot is a little closer up – you can see I don’t have the parts quite lined up for the shot – but they do fit and are flat to boot! I also did some work on the...

Walnut TV Stand

03-06-2009 11:13 PM by Kevin Depies | 5 comments »

Hello, this is my first post on LJ’s! Here is the current project I am working on – a TV stand / entertainment center… whatever you want to call it : ) I’m a little further along than these photos, which were taken a couple weeks ago. This is basically it though, minus an adjustable shelf for the opening in the middle and some handles for the doors, both of which are made now. I am looking for ideas on what type of finish to use on this project as finish...

Juniper Log Furniture : Floor Lamp #1: Wicked Floor Lamp, what ribbon like movement

03-06-2009 10:09 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 3 comments »

Nothing like having numerous projects to work on This lamp is very ribbon like; really flat but with lots of movement. It does have a small burl. The base will be cut down to size which will also shorten the lamp so that it is not so tall. We will scribe fit the lamp limb to fit the base. I have started sanding the limb and my husband has been working on the base.

Decorative wood panels - fonts

03-06-2009 10:09 PM by BeaverTools | 1 comment »

Hello all. I currently also attend college for Graphic Design. For my illustration and typography classes I’m working on a project where i’ve picked 4 of my favorite typefaces, then illustrated a really simple design for each. Each typeface and illustration is laid out on a 8.5×8.5 in piece of Syberian Elm that’s been planed down to under 1/4 inch thick. I did each design in photoshop, then I’m printing the design out and transferring it onto the piece of wo...

Burled Juniper Log Floor Lamp #2: Ready to drill holes

03-06-2009 09:56 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 6 comments »

I got the limb 100% sanded, my husband is inlaying turquoise in the base, next we will drill the holes for the cord. The dark spot you can see on the base is where we applied sanding sealer, there is a bit of rot so this helps harden the wood and it also keeps the glue from staining the wood when we inlay the turquoise.

Twisted Coffee Table Base #6: Ready to Spray the Finish

03-06-2009 09:48 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 2 comments »

Here is the larger coffee table base. Ready to be sprayed. We will spray them with Satin Polycrylic and most likely have to flip it upside down and spray the bottome with couple of coats and when that is dry, flip it back over and do the top part.

03-06-2009 09:39 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 1 comment »

The creative process of building the supports for the glass top took longer than expected, but then again we always expect the unexepected, so then again we did expect it. Hahaha did that make sense? Anyway here it is, we are hoping to spray them tomorrow and sunday if the wind does not blow like mad.

Sketchup Shorts #2: Outliner - Component Selection - Anywhere, Anytime

03-06-2009 09:14 PM by PurpLev | 3 comments »

Is there an easier way to select components/groups that are behind another geometry? or inside one? Is there a way to transfer a component from one group to another? Yes there is. Welcome the Outliner window. This tutorial refers to components in your model, but in this case, groups behave in the exact same manner. If not yet visible, click ”Window → Outliner” to see this window in Sketchup. The Outliner window shows you a list of all components and groups in your...
