Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride #19: Plodding along on my drawer project - having issues with scaling

08-11-2008 05:53 AM by Betsy | 1 comment »

So I’m home from the church concert – WOW – kinds of revs you up. So decided to try to learn a little bit more on the SU front. I’m probably the slowest learner on this type of stuff – but no one can say I’m not persistent! So here I go. This is my first side – which shows the length (10.25); width (.5); and height (3.5) and I’ve made it a component. This next shot shows the second side having been copied and moved to it’s ...

08-11-2008 03:21 AM by Rustic | 1 comment »

Got the workbench into the shop and put some ply on the bottom so I can use the inside for storage. I also built a shelf for storage bins. I am using as much scrap wood as I possibly can to redo my shop. I have also posted some project pics. as well as the workbench.

Thank YOU my fellow LJ's

08-11-2008 01:08 AM by lazyfiremaninTN | 13 comments »

I signed onto LJ’s just over a year ago at the urging of my brother, Greg3g. When I signed on I was nothing more than a hack wood butcher. Yea, I thought that I was a “woodworker”, but that was just a pipe dream. I had built a few shelving unit from 2×4s and plywood but nothing of real substance besides a workbench that my EX-wife got with the house (she gave it to the guys who remodeled her garage into a bedroom after I moved out). That being said, with the encourag...

Opposing Arch Table #1: Sketchup Design

08-10-2008 11:16 PM by Blake | 17 comments »

I have been thinking about making another table lately. I had so much fun building the Sewing Table that I wanted to make something for our house. And my wife has wanted a place to put her collection of jewelry. So we came up with this idea (actually it was mostly her idea) and I started doing some designing today. This is what I came up with so far. The idea is to make a hall table with a lifting “lid” and a hidden jewelry case underneath with lots of room for necklaces, brace...

Procrastination: Woodworking

08-10-2008 05:08 PM by Woodbutchery | 11 comments »

This is from another blog site of mine from a project from last year, but it seems so appropriate here I thought I’d port it over. I’m working on a set of shelves for Caitlin, making them out of 3/4” red oak plywood, blah blah blah. The end result, when done, will be a second set of shelves to mirror the set on the other side of the fireplace. So the plywood is ripped, banded, and ready for final cutting, then assembly. And this is where the procrastination kicks in....

I have been building the drawers. Here is a jpg of the model. I started with some layout. Then I cut the fingers with a jig I made. I was left with this. I ran a rabbett down the drawer side. The drawer side fingers were left proud. I pillowed them with sandpaper. More Pillowing I was left with this.A glueup. I didn’t get a picture but I ran a dado on the sides for the backs to sit in and another all around for the drawer bottom. Here it is wit...
