Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #4: Thoughts in SketchUp

11-12-2017 09:35 PM by Bluenote38 | 3 comments »

Temps dropped, cold in the shop so refocused to more indoor activities. Friday (November 10th), of course, was the U.S. Marine Corps 242nd Birthday – Semper Fi Brothers past, present, and future, and may we serve 300 more with honor. Did the Vets day thing too on Saturday served breakfast to a host of Korea and Vietnam Vets and some of the few remaining WWII Vets too. I have to say that I met a guy who was on the USN Nautilus. The first nuclear sub and the first to sail under the pola...

Tool Cabinets #2: Tool cabinet has become tool WALL

11-12-2017 03:22 AM by glideking | 10 comments »

Having the 3D controller in my left had and the trackpad in my right has been a game changer. I can now fly through my plans. Thought I would start cutting lumber today but I keep coming up with ideas on my drawings in Sketchup. As the program gets easier for me I am exploring construction and configuration possibilities. The back panels and flipper doors have become bead board. Added crown molding just to learn the “follow me” tool in Sketchup. I did not want the saw till behind ...

Tool Cabinets #1: Tool Cabinet Concept

10-30-2017 04:50 PM by glideking | 3 comments »

My first attempt at using Sketch up program for designing a piece. I am a bit slow on my first day but I think it will be a handy skill to add to my woodworking. This is still a rough draft. I have to confirm that my tools will fit. The cabinet must fit between two ceiling beams. I may leave the hinged doors as open frames with tools hanging on both sides. The cabinets behind the doors will be mounted to the wall independently and remain open without doors of their own.

Farm Bed with Storage, Queen

05-23-2017 07:39 PM by clperdue4342 | 6 comments »

Farm Bed with Storage, Queen I modeled this farm bed after a design I found on Ana White’s website. I made some modifications to eliminate the pocket hole joinery. I’m not a hater of pocket holes; they just seemed inadequate for this project. I did finish the bed, but I never got around to the night stand.

Sketchup extension - FitParts for cut plans

10-09-2016 10:40 AM by Slavisa Nesic | 0 comments »

I’ve made a Sketchup extension named FitParts for generating cut plans from your drawing. Let’s say you are making a panel box just for example. First you make 6 walls and group every one of them as you go; it is nice and normal to name them, say left, right, .... Second you select these groups. Third you start my extension from Sketchup menu Extensions / FitParts / MakeCutlist. You will choose or type the size of (identical) panels you have and click the Cut button.What you will...

New Book - SketchUp For Kitchen Design

10-06-2016 10:14 AM by BobLang | 1 comment »

I’ve just released a new book in enhanced PDF format (50 videos are embedded within the 195 pages of text) about using SketchUp to create 3D models of kitchens. If you’re planning to redo a kitchen, or are in the business, this book starts with the download and setup of the program, shows you how to use SketchUp to model a room, fill it with cabinets, appliances and counters, and generate both realistic renderings and technical drawings from the same model. Special introductory...

Shop Built Belt Sander Project #1: Designing and Initial Build

11-09-2015 03:24 AM by Lazyman | 2 comments »

Project Inspiration A couple of months ago, Woodsmith magazine had a shop built belt sander on the cover which inspired me to try to build my own. I’ve been using a handheld Dewalt Belt sander with a stand as a bench sander but have been frustrated with the small sanding area. I also had to fix a broken shaft screw using super glue so I know that its days are numbered. The Woodsmith version was designed to take advantage of a lathe to drive the sander when the lathe is not in use but...

Media Center #1: Latest project

Sketch up rendition. .skp file also available for view. Center media cabinet. One of the two end satellite cabinets. Still need to cut up the crown molding. This cabinet is sitting on a short roll around platform to facilitate installing the drawers so I didn’t need to work on my knees.
