Fall Sketchup Challenge

09-06-2007 07:12 AM by Bob Babcock | 23 comments »

Just like the tutorial I had to do something quick. I’ve recently become very interested in Standup Paddleboarding. Most of you have also seen the gates I built for my brother at his home on Maui. My brothers home is a short distance from arguably the most famous surf break in the world….Jaws. All that coupled with my recent paddle building experience led me to create the Jaws Dining Table. The creation of the model was very simple. I first created the outline of the wave. T...

Here is my entry. This month is crazy for me but I gave it a go. I based my table on Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece Falling Water. I have always been fascinated with this house, so when I read the challenge rules I went right for it. Version with Sliding Dovetails to attach top. The tabletop represents the bottom cantilever of the house. From From /

Fall SketchUp Challenge - Empire State Dining Table

09-26-2007 05:38 AM by Brad_Nailor | 22 comments »

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...

Fall Sketchup Challenge

09-10-2007 03:41 AM by mot | 21 comments »

There has always been a monument that intrigued me. It’s in the US somewhere. I was born, raised, and live in Canada. You think I could find this monument? I don’t where it is, or what it’s called, but I knew what it looked like. Well, I did eventually find it. It’s called the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. I once knew it as the St. Louis Arch. In looking at the wonderful work done by fellow lumberjocks, I’ve become fascinated with bent lam...

Fall Sketchup Challenge Entry - Torii Table

09-10-2007 07:14 AM by Damian Penney | 21 comments »

Shortly after leaving England but before arriving in the US I lived in Japan for a year and had the pleasure of experiencing their unique architecture and way of life. One image that has stayed with me is that of the Torii that lies at the entrance to the Shinto shrines. My interpretation uses the basic design elements of the torii which are two upright supports and two crossbars on top, the Torii image is visible from both the ends and the sides of the table and the finish would be a deep...

Fall Sketchup Challenge Entry - Honey Table

09-09-2007 08:28 AM by Damian Penney | 19 comments »

I didn’t leave England until my early twenties and have loved Earl Grey tea for as long as I can remember. I even went to University in Newcastle Upon Tyne where Charles Grey, the second Earl of Grey was born and raised and my favourite way of drinking that great mans tea is in a china mug with a big old blob of honey mixed in to it. So my inspiration for this table is the humble honey bee. The table top is comprised of maple and walnut hexagons mimicking a honeycomb with a hive like...

Dubai Hotel Dining Table

09-30-2007 01:33 AM by Ric | 17 comments »

After looking through some of the entries, I sure hope designs are judged, not on how well we can make SketchUp work! I’ve only been using it for 3 weeks and only for this one design. I’ve figured a way to make it do some things, but from what you all are doing, I’ve got a long way to go! Anyway, to my design. I’ve been facinated by the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai , United Arab Emirates ever since I saw a special on it on Discovery. The inspiration for the ho...
