Challenge03 Landmark Dining Table

09-16-2007 02:49 AM by CanadianWoodChuck | 7 comments »

Hi AllHere we go. This is my first attempt at writing a blog and I’m very new at Sketchup. I watched most of the tutorials and played for hours. Now I have to figure out how to get my pictures in here from Paint Bucket. I used the CN Tower in Toronto as my inspiration. I hope everyone is having as much fun as I am.BruceCanadian Wood Chuck

Fall Sketchup Challenge - Wagon Wheel Table

09-13-2007 07:41 PM by Buckskin | 9 comments »

Being from Wyoming I have a passion for all things Western, Rugged, and Rustic. Don’t tell anyone this, but I am beginning to like Sketchup. I posted in an early thread how I would rather just use pencil and paper to do my design work. After what Mot has named the “Freedom Table” I decided to try again. I actually like this approach to design. It can be easily flipped and rotated to give different vantage points. Something my pencil and paper skills lack. So bac...

Penobscot Narrows Table

09-13-2007 03:11 AM by Vanmaineac | 12 comments »

I have the good fortune to go to Penobscot Bay in the Gulf of Maine every summer. In the past two years they have been building a new bridge to replace the old one. It was completed this past summer. They put on quite a show to open it. It’s total length is almost half a mile and when you get up onto the observatory you are 42 stories in the air. Only two of these cable-stayed bridges exist in the US.For the table I used the basis of the bridge as the legs and on top I imported a pi...

Fall ScetchUp Challenge

09-11-2007 10:05 PM by Buckskin | 10 comments »

Okay, I wrestled with this and wrestled with this. I must be resistant to change. I am not sure I know how to use SketchUp any better than I did. I think I have learned a few new words though. LOL. In all seriousness this was fun. Anyway here is the inspiration for my entry: And now for my table. It is simple in design and long on pride. The table is 4’ x 6’ with 36” legs.

Fall Sketchup Challenge Entry - Backwards Bridge

09-11-2007 05:48 AM by ThreeJs | 14 comments »

This bridge fell during a tropical storm a few years ago. Now it servers as a dam, and the river flows over it rather than under. Today cars do not use the bridge to travel the forest road, but that doesn’t stop a few adventurous hikers. The bridge. Wire frame showing the construction of the table The woods depicted in the table design are primarily cherry and maple, with walnut accents.Front View Left View The table.

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

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 - 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...
