Novel Bookshelf- drawing in sketchup

02-17-2010 12:21 AM by Adam Weis | 1 comment »

This is a piece I plan to build over the next few months to use as a show piece in craft fairs and possibly to put in a gallery. I have lots of connections in the art world so hopefully I can find a home for it.

Tool thoughts #7: Lumber Rack

09-01-2008 03:34 AM by NedB | 3 comments »

Looted my storage unit today. I had this pile of wood in there… plus just a bit more ‘shorts’ and ‘cutoffs’ but they’ll come home tomorrow. I had to clear out the rack just above the mitersaw, so I put up a couple more arms on the wall and moved the short stock over there. I won’t need to buy too much wood for awhile.. who am I kidding anyway? Mostly cherry, (middle section), plus some maple and butternut (bottom and top sections) ...

The Wine Rack #2: Preliminary Design

04-08-2010 04:50 PM by Todd Clare | 10 comments »

I’ve measured the space where I’m going to put the rack, and started to want to visualize the design. I opted to fire up Google SketchUp which has been really useful for me in the past in laying things out and seeing them in 3D. This is the preliminary design only, as I still need to move things around and make sure the spacing and height and shadow lines are where I think I might want them. One of the challenges was how to make it “light” looking, and making the ...

Just for Fun... #25: The Trays Begin...

07-14-2010 09:35 PM by littlecope | 11 comments »

In the last episode it was decided that, because this Box is a little bigger than usual, I’d be making some trays for it. I guess I’m still anxious to use the new toy, because I sized the wood I’ll be using last… first!!After Re-sawing another scrap of the Cherry, I thinned it down on the Jointer to about 3/16”. These will be for the bottoms of the two trays…With the Imbuia top, and Cherry sides on the outer Box, I’m going with Imbuia sides and Cherry...

The Craftsman's Path #18: Queen Anne Side Table - Roughing out the legs

12-02-2007 01:06 AM by Mark Mazzo | 6 comments »

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I was recently inspired to build a period reproduction piece of furniture. I chose to do a side table in the Queen Anne style based on a Glen Huey design with cabriole legs, scrolled aprons and a single drawer. I like this style and it poses some challenges in developing new skills. The picture is Glen Huey’s version. I’ve started down the path of building this piece and I hope that you’ll follow along as I post entries about its de...

jewelry chest #2: adding legs and top to chest

05-07-2010 11:34 PM by Kate | 2 comments »

My first blog entry showed the first step in rehabilitating an old chest. You can see step one here: http://lumberjocks.com/lumberjane/blog/15489 My next step was to add some feet to the case to get it off the ground and add some visual interest. Then I started working on the top. I made a straightforward cherry and walnut top. It was so-so. Then one of my students made a great suggestion and presto, the curved top was born (thanks to Ellen K. for her design ideas). Next I added ...

Baby Crib #4: Stairway to heaven

03-29-2010 04:09 AM by MDeSchepper | 1 comment »

Was able to get quite a bit accomplished despite a major setback. Back on my 1st blog I showed how I was working from some plans I purchased which offered full size templates for the legs. I have learned a very valuable lesson from this and to my fellow LJ’s I hope you learn one as well. DOUBLE CHECK THE DIMENSIONS! Found out the “full size” templates were not exactly to scale. The legs I cut on the band saw were about 2 1/2” shorter than they should have been. A...

Shaker Dvd cabinet sketchup revision

06-24-2009 06:06 PM by skeeter | 0 comments »

After so many of my fellow lumberjocks had so many helpful bits of advice about my new glass door cabinet design, I decided to go back to the “drawing board.” We decided to shrink the cabinet down to 50 so I could stay in the 2×4 rule. I think it made the cabinets proportions better. We also decided to go with raised panels on the bottom doors. I didn’t draw it but the cabinet will have a back like my previous project. I think this gives your pieces a quality that no p...
