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.

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 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...

Challenge 03 Entry - Bridge Dining Table

09-17-2007 08:22 PM by RickInTexas | 12 comments »

So after missing out on the last challenge, I made myself get this one done before time ran out. Let me first start by showing my influence.This shows the column and cap design that I like that we are using for bridges around the Houston area. I work for Texas Dept. of Transportation, so I thought that doing a table inspired by not one single location, but by all the bridges that I have been around for the past couple years.This second one shows the beams between two bent caps. So here it ...

I love College Football in general, and specifically the CU Buffaloes. So, I used Folsom Field as inspiration. I also used Layout, which comes with SketchUp Pro, and used the style feature to add a more hand drawn look in certain views.
