Mission Style DVD Storage Table #1: Planning and Sketchup Model

10-16-2013 03:44 AM by Brad_Nailor | 4 comments »

My friend the contractor asked me to make him a small table to store video game DVD’s. The furniture style in the room was mission, so I went with a slightly mission style look for the table. The space its going in is relatively small so the table is small as well. After a few size and design changes this is what I decided on..It’s going to be made from 4/4 ribbon Sapele..found some really nice stuff at Woodcraft..I am going to use pocket screw construction for most of it..the ver...

Thanks to the sharp eyes and friendly advice of my fellow LJ’ers I have updated the cutting diagram for the podium to make better use of the grain direction.

Fall SketchUp Challenge - Empire State Dining Table

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...
