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...

Virtual Dining Table Challenge - Hundertwasser Table

09-28-2007 06:47 AM by daltxguy | 12 comments »

Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000) was an Austrian Painter and sculptor. Born in Austria he lived and worked primarily in Vienna but eventually made New Zealand his permanent home. He was one of Austria’s best known contemporary artists though he remains controversial. I first got to know Hundertwasser from my own time spent living in Vienna and like Hundertwasser I too now make my home in New Zealand, so it seemed appropriate to use his work as my inspiration. The common themes in hi...

Fall Sketchup Challenge Entry - Backwards Bridge

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

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...

Folsom Stadium Dining Room Table

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.

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...

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...
