Part 1: The start

07-27-2012 02:15 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

Hey guys! I have just started this project series over on facebook and twitter called “You Design It, I Build It”. I started it because I have some lumber that has been sitting around and I figured it would be a great way to get others involved that may or may not be into woodworking. If you would like to join you can check those social media sites out or keep up with it on my blog. I am hoping that this is not only fun for the designers (you guys) but also pushes my limits as a w...

Part 2: Last Day For Ideas

Just wanted to remind everyone that today is the last day for the “You design it, I build it” project. I will put a poll up on Sunday for everyone to vote on what type of project we will be doing. So far I’ve had a bench, hall table, corn hole game, and 2 side tables. Leave any ideas that you have and I’ll add it to the list.

Part 4: And the winner is.....

08-13-2012 06:48 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

After a tough fight between the hall table and the bench, the hall table has won. At the beginning the bench took a quick lead, but then failed to hold it as the hall table easily passed it. Now it is on to the next stage, the actual design of it. I will be figuring out how I will do this and then post more about the next step. Thank you to all who participated so far and please keep on participating.

Part 5: Start Designing

08-17-2012 06:31 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Sorry for the long delay in between the voting results and this. I have to start designing the hall table that won. Before I start sketching some designs I want to know which way to go. Since this is a table that YOU are designing, I have to ask you. I will be adding another poll to the side bar called “2 square, or not 2 square”. Simply put, Do you want the design to be curvy or have crisp clean square lines? I’ll give a week for votes and then get started with designing. www.asliceofwoodwor...

Part 6: The Top & Drawers

08-30-2012 12:35 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

One step closer to the actual drawing stage. This time I’m wanting to know if you want the top to be “floating” or if it should be solid, attached right to the base. Also, should this have drawers? If so, how many? I had a suggestion to add a secret compartment. That is a must have. Hurry and vote, this time it is only open for a couple days. Click Here to Vote and look in the left sidebar.

Part 7: Start Drawing

The latest poll has closed and I appreciate those that are participating. Now it is on to the drawing stages. What we will be building is a nice clean edged hall table that has it’s top sitting right on its base. It will include two drawers with a hidden drawer in there somewhere. Now I need drawings. If you would like to enter a drawing please email them to me at [email protected] I will give a week to have drawings entered and then 3 days to vote. I will also include some sket...
