Designing the Thien Baffle in Sketchup

07-27-2014 02:37 AM by Sk1pp3r | 0 comments »

I am just posting my journey for my upgrades to the Harbor Freight Dust collector I got. I have been using it stock except for the wynn filter cartridge and have been happy with it so far, however I have been getting some leaks and will smell the wood dust coming from the collector after cutting items. So I figured if I am going to seal the leaks, I better just build a whole new cart and add a Thien Separator. The first post here is detailing the Thien Separator. I went over to his we...

Design Conundrum #1: Writing Desk

06-26-2014 08:37 PM by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 4 comments »

So I’ve been playing around with Sketchup this afternoon and I am a bit stuck. I came across a design for a writing desk top that I really liked, but my problem is that I cannot figure out a good base for it to sit on. I came up with this design, but I am not happy with it because it doesn’t fit with my normal aesthetic. It feels a little too much on the modern side and box-y. (Dimensions: 40×20x30) Any suggestions?

Workbench Build #2: More design tweaking, and some cherry sawdust

03-28-2014 04:13 AM by Mark Kornell | 5 comments »

After getting my legs glued up, I decided to look at my plan to see how it would fit the likely final leg dimensions. And realized that the 6×6 legs in the SketchUp model would likely end up at 5 1/2” x 5 1/2”. So I spent a couple hours making tweaks. Adjusting the leg dimensions was easy. I also simplified a bunch of the joinery. Used LayOut to make dimensioned drawings for leg joinery. After all, I have 4 legs glued up and waiting for action. Was about to start cuttin...

Season of shop upgrades #2: Table Saw Outfeed

02-16-2014 10:34 AM by PJ72 | 3 comments »

A need for out-feedI have tried using out feed rollers and various stands for some time and have never been satisfied with the results, especially when cutting large sheet goods on the table saw. For reasons including safety and quality of cut, I decided that I needed an out feed table system. Primary ConcernFor my garage workshop I needed a solution that was easily stored out of the way quickly with minimal storage space. I patterned the out-feed table on a design by Dwayne Intveld in t...

Piper's Folding Table #1: The table, modelled in Sketchup.

11-18-2013 05:51 PM by pashley | 4 comments »

My friend, Travis Piper, showed me this table he has had since he was a kid; it’s thought to be from the 1930s. It’s very unique the way it folds up when picked up in the middle. I really like the design, shaker-esque in nature. I modeled it in Sketchup. My only change was to the skirt, adding an arch, instead of the mild scallopy profile that is on the original. My rendering’s metal support rails are a bit too slivery; I think I would make them a flat black, if I were to ma...

Texas Tech Pool Cue Rack #1: Design

11-15-2013 05:20 PM by ConstructionBoss | 2 comments »

My Brother-in-Law has a pool table in his condo and every time we go over there, the pool cues are laying on a table or on the bar chairs. He also has a table top to convert it to a ping pong, or in their case beer pong table, so the accessories need a place to go. After our last visit, I told my wife maybe I should make him a pool cue rack for Christmas. She liked the idea, but as with anything, I needed to make sure I had her buy in before pumping something out that she might not like. ...

Sketchup #1: Handplane Cabinet and use of Sketchup in the design

10-29-2013 04:52 AM by paulcanbuildthat | 0 comments »

For my Introduction to Woodworking class, we have a “final project” that we choose ourselves. Given that I’m learning to use hand tools, I’ve decided to make a handplane cabinet. In my latest blog entry, I show how I use Google (now Trimble) SketchUp to create the design and the use of layers and scenes to showcase the various parts of the design without duplicating any portion. This was based on information that I learned from Bob Lang in his article from Popular Woodworking. T...

Mission Style DVD Storage Table #1: Planning and Sketchup Model

10-16-2013 03:44 AM by Brad_Nailor | 4 comments »

My friend the contractor asked me to make him a small table to store video game DVD’s. The furniture style in the room was mission, so I went with a slightly mission style look for the table. The space its going in is relatively small so the table is small as well. After a few size and design changes this is what I decided on..It’s going to be made from 4/4 ribbon Sapele..found some really nice stuff at Woodcraft..I am going to use pocket screw construction for most of it..the ver...
