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 it..my Art Deco Empire State Dining Table! The material is tiger maple and wenge. The top...

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.

Fallingwater Dining Table

09-29-2007 07:47 AM by Kevin Wilson | 12 comments »

When it was time to design my table, there was only one choice for the inspiration. As a graduate of architectural design, I’ve always been fascinated with Frank Lloyd Wright. I spent a lot of time with my nose buried in books about “Fallingwater”, his masterpiece. Then I went there…. It was amazing! The entire house seems to have grown from the rock all on it’s own. I returned from the trip and wrote my final paper on Fallingwater. Since then I...

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...

Virtual table #2: Mt. St. Mich Trestle Table

09-24-2007 06:27 AM by scottb | 14 comments »

Not far south of my ancestral homeland (one of them anyhow, as Americans tend to be from lots of places) on the French side of the English Channel – near the Blanchard Straights in fact, you’ll find Mont Saint Michel, a tidal penninsula on the Breton/Norman border. Constructed under, as well as commissioned by ancestors of mine (the Dukes of Normandy – future kings of England – and their forefathers, I feel a connection to the island, turned tidal penninsula, turned...

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...

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...

SketchUp Challenge - A Month Late

11-03-2007 12:57 AM by cheller | 7 comments »

I’m really late with this. August and September were very busy months, mostly related to upheaval at work. In the insanity I had trouble deciding on an inspiration and even more trouble finding the time and energy to focus on learning SketchUp. About a week before the deadline I finally came up with an inspiration. But despite my best efforts I couldn’t get it together to submit on time. The final straw was primarily mental (no wise cracks, please). I really didn’t wan...
