Challenge 03 Entry - Bridge Dining Table

09-17-2007 08:22 PM by RickInTexas | 12 comments »

So after missing out on the last challenge, I made myself get this one done before time ran out. Let me first start by showing my influence.This shows the column and cap design that I like that we are using for bridges around the Houston area. I work for Texas Dept. of Transportation, so I thought that doing a table inspired by not one single location, but by all the bridges that I have been around for the past couple years.This second one shows the beams between two bent caps. So here it ...

Fall Sketchup Challenge - Wagon Wheel Table

09-13-2007 07:41 PM by Buckskin | 9 comments »

Being from Wyoming I have a passion for all things Western, Rugged, and Rustic. Don’t tell anyone this, but I am beginning to like Sketchup. I posted in an early thread how I would rather just use pencil and paper to do my design work. After what Mot has named the “Freedom Table” I decided to try again. I actually like this approach to design. It can be easily flipped and rotated to give different vantage points. Something my pencil and paper skills lack. So bac...

Penobscot Narrows Table

09-13-2007 03:11 AM by Vanmaineac | 12 comments »

I have the good fortune to go to Penobscot Bay in the Gulf of Maine every summer. In the past two years they have been building a new bridge to replace the old one. It was completed this past summer. They put on quite a show to open it. It’s total length is almost half a mile and when you get up onto the observatory you are 42 stories in the air. Only two of these cable-stayed bridges exist in the US.For the table I used the basis of the bridge as the legs and on top I imported a pi...

Fall ScetchUp Challenge

09-11-2007 10:05 PM by Buckskin | 10 comments »

Okay, I wrestled with this and wrestled with this. I must be resistant to change. I am not sure I know how to use SketchUp any better than I did. I think I have learned a few new words though. LOL. In all seriousness this was fun. Anyway here is the inspiration for my entry: And now for my table. It is simple in design and long on pride. The table is 4’ x 6’ with 36” legs.

Fall Sketchup Challenge Entry - Backwards Bridge

09-11-2007 05:48 AM by ThreeJs | 14 comments »

This bridge fell during a tropical storm a few years ago. Now it servers as a dam, and the river flows over it rather than under. Today cars do not use the bridge to travel the forest road, but that doesn’t stop a few adventurous hikers. The bridge. Wire frame showing the construction of the table The woods depicted in the table design are primarily cherry and maple, with walnut accents.Front View Left View The table.

Fall Sketchup Challenge

09-10-2007 03:41 AM by mot | 21 comments »

There has always been a monument that intrigued me. It’s in the US somewhere. I was born, raised, and live in Canada. You think I could find this monument? I don’t where it is, or what it’s called, but I knew what it looked like. Well, I did eventually find it. It’s called the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. I once knew it as the St. Louis Arch. In looking at the wonderful work done by fellow lumberjocks, I’ve become fascinated with bent lam...

Fall Sketchup Challenge Entry - Honey Table

09-09-2007 08:28 AM by Damian Penney | 19 comments »

I didn’t leave England until my early twenties and have loved Earl Grey tea for as long as I can remember. I even went to University in Newcastle Upon Tyne where Charles Grey, the second Earl of Grey was born and raised and my favourite way of drinking that great mans tea is in a china mug with a big old blob of honey mixed in to it. So my inspiration for this table is the humble honey bee. The table top is comprised of maple and walnut hexagons mimicking a honeycomb with a hive like...

Fall Sketchup Challenge

09-06-2007 07:12 AM by Bob Babcock | 23 comments »

Just like the tutorial I had to do something quick. I’ve recently become very interested in Standup Paddleboarding. Most of you have also seen the gates I built for my brother at his home on Maui. My brothers home is a short distance from arguably the most famous surf break in the world….Jaws. All that coupled with my recent paddle building experience led me to create the Jaws Dining Table. The creation of the model was very simple. I first created the outline of the wave. T...

Conference table / work bench #2: Construction Details

09-04-2007 03:55 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 14 comments »

I thought I would include a few more photos, showing the construction details. I’m not sure why I always end up with the photos in reverse order, but maybe you should start from the bottom! Completed top, waiting for the edge shaping and butterflies. My stepson, Evan, inspecting our work. Lee and Evan installing 1/8" thick, Wenge edge banding. The underside, fitted and stained. The holes allow attaching the top to the frame. Evan measuring for the stainless inserts...
