New Book - SketchUp For Kitchen Design

10-06-2016 10:14 AM by BobLang | 1 comment »

I’ve just released a new book in enhanced PDF format (50 videos are embedded within the 195 pages of text) about using SketchUp to create 3D models of kitchens. If you’re planning to redo a kitchen, or are in the business, this book starts with the download and setup of the program, shows you how to use SketchUp to model a room, fill it with cabinets, appliances and counters, and generate both realistic renderings and technical drawings from the same model. Special introductory...

Contemporary Coffee Table

09-05-2015 03:05 AM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

I used Bob Lang’s Popular Woodworking plan for this Contemporary Coffee Table. Within a few days I have milled the rough sawn poplar lumber, glued the table’s top panel and then cut the legs, rails and aprons. I am making this as a gift for my wife’s son Scot and his Ginger. Over a year ago I promised to make them a table for their living room. He gave me the general dimensions for his table: 24” by 24” by 18” tall. At the time I thought the table mig...

Sketchup #1: Handplane Cabinet and use of Sketchup in the design

10-29-2013 04:52 AM by paulcanbuildthat | 0 comments »

For my Introduction to Woodworking class, we have a “final project” that we choose ourselves. Given that I’m learning to use hand tools, I’ve decided to make a handplane cabinet. In my latest blog entry, I show how I use Google (now Trimble) SketchUp to create the design and the use of layers and scenes to showcase the various parts of the design without duplicating any portion. This was based on information that I learned from Bob Lang in his article from Popular Woodworking. T...

Kitchen Cabinet Build #1: About the Planning Phase...

05-20-2013 02:33 PM by Brohymn62 | 3 comments »

I have spent most of the year slowly reading through material and gather ideas for this build. I have also been slowly acquiring the last bits of equipment that I thought I’d need to get the job done, the last of which was a router table attachment for my table saw. I’m sure that more stuff will be needed as I move through the process but I am confident I have most of what I need. I have focused most of the planning around the ideas from Bob Lang’s Book “The Complete K...

Building a new workbench #1: The top is glued up and the components are rough cut

01-29-2009 10:28 PM by Loogie | 9 comments »

I’m in the process of building a new workbench based on Bob Lang's bench as detailed in the October 2008 issue of Popular Woodworking. I’ve read Christopher Schwarz book “Workbenches: From Design And Theory To Construction And Use” as well as several others. It always seemed like I wanted a combination of the features I found in most other benches. Bob Langs design was the first I’d seen that incorporated everything I wanted in a bench, so here goes! I bou...
