Woodworking as Therapy #20: Relearning Google Sketch Up

887 days ago by Betsy | 6 comments »

I started this blog http://lumberjocks.com/Betsy/blog/5302 quite a long time ago to learn Sketch up and to take everyone else along for the ride while I was recovering from a health issue. Quite a ride it was. I actually kind of got the hang of it. But, alas, you know the saying, “you don’t use it you lose it” well that’s where I’m at right now. I’m going back reading through my own blog to teach myself SU again, I’ve also been going through videos tu...

Super Duper Sled #1: The Sketchup Plans

1448 days ago by AttainableApex | 11 comments »

Well here is my latest sled design. This sled is a combination of many sleds that i have seen in the past. One sled that really influenced it, is the super sled by john nixon at eagle lake woodworking. I like the t track on the sled part (the sheet part) but i am going to use real t track. I also liked the t track on top of the fence, which i incorporated, but it stops there. This sled should be able to do just about everything. You can cut 45’s ( blade tilting at 45 deg ) and every o...

Don K's Mobile Table Saw Stand Sketchup Model

1744 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 2 comments »

I have been threatening to buy a new table saw for a few months now and as all the planets seem to be aligned I am finally going to take the plunge…before i end up spending the money on Christmas! I am going to get a Grizzly G0690. I came to this decision thanks to allot of great input from the people on this site in particular Don K. He owns this saw along with a few other Grizzly pieces and doesn’t hesitate to sing the praises of this saw. After the Shop Fox rolling base he purc...

Possible Inlay Project - Suggestions??

1891 days ago by Derrek LeRouax | 3 comments »

So, I am in the process of a myriad of “home” projects (shelves in kids rooms, re-finishing painted furniture, attic shelves, etc…), and have been spending my free time trying to figure out my next project. I am big on “form follows function”, so I want any project I endevor on to serve a purpose. I also want to continue my journey in woodworking, so I want to try something I have never done before, hence INLAYS. I have seen some great projects with even bette...

Sketchup - I'm glad I took the time to learn it.

2136 days ago by pashley | 17 comments »

I admit, I had a heck of a time when I first started with Sketchup; I was not getting it – and I have been working with software for 20 years. But I saw the value in Sketchup. I could create my own WW plans, and manipulate them like crazy to make sure everything fit, and that particular woods and finishes would look good together – before ever cutting a single piece of wood. I bought a “for Dummies” book, and watched some YouTube videos; I tried playing with it o...

Sandbar #1: Cabinets for Sandbar are underway!

2340 days ago by Sparky977 | 3 comments »

Sandbar is the name of the next house I am trimming for Specialty Builders, LLC. After many long evenings playing around with Google Sketchup to draw detailed drawings of the kitchen, and then using Cut List Plus (thanks to a recommendation from Lee Jesberger’s site: prowoodworkingtips.com!) to set up my plywood cutting, I have begun cutting said plywood to size. Cut List Plus is tremendous! It is saving me from having too much waste, plus the option of printing labels for each part ...

First Shop #5: Bench, Chisels and First Project

2420 days ago by YooperCasey | 3 comments »

Last time I laid out my equipment purchase plans. No progress on purchases though I have decided on the Ridgid TS3650 contractor saw. I see the Woodworking show is coming to Milwaukee in February and that is only 5 hours south for me, so I may see what kind of deal I can snag there on a table saw. I’ve spent the last few evenings working on my core skills. Marking out, cutting, fitting and basically getting used to how certain things behave. This includes trying out my new Bosch CS20...
