Making a Side Table my Own Way #2: Making the parts

07-31-2012 12:22 AM by ~Julie~ | 3 comments »

I’m trying to make a triangular table base with 3 legs and a circular top. Okay, to make the base, I cut the apron pieces out of pine at 60 degrees: The ends are such that one end overlaps the one beside it, which I’m really not sure how to explain other than that and each end is different, with one going past the adjacent piece. Perhaps the photo will show it: In order to have the legs show their “rolls” I will cut a groove in each apron piece at a po...

So you want to go pro #13: "The Price is Right" ?

01-17-2008 08:45 PM by odie | 3 comments »

Well, one more bowl turned and one more blog entry to write. And believe me, this is a good time to write this. It’s 4 degrees outside and 34 degrees in the shop. This topic is coming to a close. There are only a couple left to do I can think of, unless you have questions. Hell, there must be a couple of questions in Turlock. This is a tough topic to tackle. Say that 5 times really quick. Your pricing structure is this entries topic. The first component of any price structure is the cost. ...

DragonFly Harp #3: Making the Pink Harp

01-04-2011 06:31 PM by Donna Menke | 3 comments »

Started the new year off right with many hours in the shop working on the harp project. I’ll try to keep track of my hours- a good guess would be about 10 hours to date.I don’t kid myself that working with this foam is anything like working with wood, but I need to get a prototype before I can even think about making working drawings.I spent a lot of time trying to get my styrofoam pieces to stay in the right plane before I got the brain storm to make some supportive blocks at the...

Carving a small spoon

04-16-2014 04:10 PM by filiplaw | 3 comments »

I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...

Welcome the Outliner window. This tutorial refers to components in your model, but in this case, groups behave in the exact same manner. If not yet visible, click ”Window → Outliner” to see this window in Sketchup. The Outliner window shows you a list of all components and groups in your...
