006: pallet wood cutting board #1: visualizing a cutting board in SketchUp

03-29-2010 01:03 PM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

I got some good suggestions in my last post about what to do with this block that I glued up from mostly reclaimed red oak pallet wood: One of the ideas I liked best was an end grain cutting board. I realized I had pics of each side of the block, so I made a block in SketchUp of the same dimensions, then slapped on textures from those pictures. It looked like this: Now I could cut that up by drawing lines at the locations where I wanted the cuts, then using the push/pull tool t...

Fall SketchUp Challenge - Empire State Dining Table

I have always been a big fan of the art deco style and early 20th century skyscrapers so I decided to combine both for inspiration for my virtual table design. After plowing through tons of images I found a really great art deco mirror from the 1930’s that really inspired me for the tabletop..For the leg inspiration I used my favorite skyscraper ever designed The Empire State Building!...So this is Art Deco Empire State Dining Table! The material is tiger maple and wenge. The top...

I should know better… yet I’m sitting here anyway, browsing through a gazillion web pages – mostly google image serches, trying to find the “right” model for my Sketchup table. Trolling through virtual albums of places I’ve visited and lived. Places that resonate with me. I’ve hit my (real) photo albums so many times for countless projects (College and post) that I’ve got them all but memorized – and bled dry. I should just give it a re...
