To Build or not to Build?
I really have no business involving myself with another project, but I have wanted to build this table prior to seeing the contest.
I recently bought the book containing technical drawinsg of Greene and Greene works.
I have all of Robert Lang’s books and definitely recommend all for those interested in Craftsman Furniture or cabinet making. http://www.craftsmanplans.com/ I have built 5 projects from the Stickley Books. The books are extrememely accurate drawings with great background info. They are not how to booksl; that is you must be able to read and interpret plans.
I spent about 40 minutes drawing out a basic sketch of the Thorsen table in Sketch Up. I added back in the shelf like the plant stand.
I will use this to play with the design.
If anyone wants the sketchup file, here it is. No guarantees on quality.
A SketchUp drop box would be a great addition to this site. Sawmillcreek.org has a great design forum that frequently discusses use of sketchup for woodworking.
So I will play with the drawing over the next few days. I am thinking about building it out of douglas fir since I have a ton sitting around.
