Part 1: The Barrister Bookcase

04-06-2009 07:12 PM by spaids | 1 comment »

This is a bookcase from Popular woodworking. The plans are available from their website for free as well as the sketchup model. I did the model myself before I realized there was one on the 3D warehouse. I found the model they posted is a little bit lacking. They didn’t bother with the chamfers and all the brass pins needed for the design. I tried to make this model a complete as possible. I did get lazy when it came to the pocket holes. I think I might eventually create a model ...

Part 2: Accent Table

04-06-2009 07:18 PM by spaids | 1 comment »

This idea has been in my head for about a year. I started woodworking a year and a half ago. I’ve been sitting with this idea for so long I’m not sure if its MY design or if this is someone else’s.

I was doing tapered legs with the follow me tool. It was quick to do tapers and chamfers like that but a light bulb went on in my head a couple minutes ago. With auto fold, tapered legs can be done in a single step as you draw the legs without extra work. First: draw the leg down from the table to the point where the taper should start. Second: draw a rectangle on the bottom of the leg that is the size and in the location of the finished tapered leg. EDIT Then just pull it (oop...

Part 6: Sketchup Challenge

12-11-2009 05:27 PM by spaids | 9 comments »

I’m no DaveR so this might not be that tough of a challenge. I had not done any sketchup in a while so I just wanted to keep myself sharp. This a quick little Christmas project that I cut out of scraps of 2×4’s. I didn’t event the idea but I did do my own little sketch to work with. You can find my project and the scanned sketch here.

Part 8: Kerfmaker

I’ve started a rough sketchup of a homemade version of the Bridge City Kerfmaker that I plan to build. You can get the sketchup “here”. (link removed… Read the thread for details) If anyone wants to improve this then please do and let us all know where we can get it.
