Nice looking screen.

The bottom section is easy. Top section would probably need to be cut by laser.
Too big for a scroll saw.

Cheers

Hi Phil,

Thanks. It's a Kumiko-style screen which means it's put together from a whole bunch of small parts. See this: http://www.finewoodworking.com/2015/03/ ... ork-part-i

Cheers.

That's not the intent. It's to give you encouragement. If I can do this, anyone can. Of course you need to have some reason to make virtual models in the first place. ;)

Simple drawing of a cutting board.

A coffee table in mahogany and glass. The original was walnut but I like the color of the mahogany better.

Intriguing design of the coffee table - how are the timber ends secured?

Double stick tape and prayer. :D :eusa-whistle:

Actually there's a rebate on the edge of the leg and from what I can tell, the ends are doweled to the leg. the rails under the glass also extend nearly to the outer edge of the end pieces so they probably do the bulk of the load carrying.

Nice, Dave. Which 'style' do you use to present them like that?

Re: A Few Recent SketchUp Scribbles

Thank you Malcolm.

The line style is one of the pencil styles from a set available in the Sketchucation shop. The sketchy shading is created by first doing a render in Kerkythea with all materials set to white. The rendered image is then run through an old version of Fotosketcherwhich makes the pencil shading. The output from Fotosketcher is combined with an the hidden line export or just the edges. Sounds harder to do than it really is.

Thanks. I'll give it a go sometime. I'm just trying to get to grips with Section Cuts and Animation - see my 'shop build thread - to see if I can help Pinch with his aims to animate his huge round thing!

I thought I'd share a little volunteer project I'm working on. The son of a friend is working on his Eagle Scout project. It's quite a big deal for a 16 year old kid. He develops an idea, recruits people to assist, presents the project to a proponent and makes sure it gets finished.

This is my rendition of one of his ideas for some small garden boxes. The intent if they would be tended by local senior citizens so they are raised up to make it easier to work at. The boxes will be placed along a currently blank wall at a local clinic in his small town.

He was impressed at how easy SketchUp makes the process with Match Photo. He saw me take the photograph and then watched as I set it up in SketchUp and proceeded to draw his boxes.

I've used photos as textures but never tried overlaying drawings on to photos.

May try that one day.

Mind you that could lead to actually making something afterwards. Something I've not done much of lately.

I'll have to try that, too, photo import, drawing overlay.

Nice community idea.

Robert, I hope it does lead to you building something. :D

FWIW, the image is imported as a Match Photo image. After setting up the camera attributes in SketchUp to match my DSLR, I traced the building and made a simple mass for the building. The image was then projected onto the faces of the mass which is what allows the building to show from other angles. I took a few photos from the other side (to the right of the larger view) and could have added one of those to get the texture on the wall around the right side corner. But I haven't done that, yet.
