Dave, that looks very good. Thank you for your time.

It's been added to my to-do-list.

I made some boxes that had recessed bottoms to hide the casters that worked really well for toy storage under my son's bed, that was a few years ago, now he is 39 and I get called over to help with stuff in his home.

I initially thought of wheeled boxes but decided to explore the hanging box instead. I guess I could put wheels under it? :D

Maybe a Mid-Century Modern bed? This was designed by Charlotte Perriand about 1950. Still a relevant design in my opinion.

Also nice and plain and will still look good in years to come.

I agree. My son needs a bed and I was thinking about making something like this one. I should have time in my retirement.

Here's another recent doodle.
Image
Based on pieces from the late 1950s. The original floor lamp was bamboo but I was thinking about steam bent hardwood. The pieces taper toward the top so I think they'd need to be turned before bending.

A little something different.

A carved name board. I did this for a post in the Design. Click. Build. blog.

And another view of it.

Thank you Dave.

Here are a couple of recent ones.

This music stand was a quick revision of a Shaker-style candle stand. I did it to give a woodworker an idea for a project he's working on.
Image

And this leg vise sketch was done to help clarify the vise hardware installation instructions for another woodworker.
Image
I'd already drawn a slightly different version of the vise with a larger hand wheel. It was pretty easy to modify to suit this newer version of it.

A little cherry jewelry box with a mirror. This is a Danish design from about 1960. The original was made of teak but in cherry it reminds me of a Shaker piece. Dovetailed corners and movable dividers. I think the design would go well today.

Image
The other pieces you've seen before.

This is a little different for me. It's a bucket chain for marbles. I drew it to help a fellow who is creating SketchUp models and plans for automata and other wooden machines that he builds.

You can see some of the things he's made here.

Cocktail table from about 1936 with a clock from 1932.

Perhaps he's heard of this one at the House of Marbles, not far from me.

Malcolm, I think there must be a group of people who do these things and know each other.

He changed horses a bit. Decided to make a dispenser for peanut M&Ms. (do you get those over there?) He's worked out a way to pick up one at a time which was a bit of a challenge due to the fact that each one is a different size and shape. He's got that worked out, though. I'm looking forward to seeing his whole machine.

Ever want to show something in SketchUp like a table cloth on a table or a blanket thrown on a chair? Today an extension called Clothworks was released which makes it very easy to show fabrics with some realism. This was my first go at it.

Once again you post a photo, claiming to of drawn it.

If that is your first go, I think you have petty well mastered it.

Sleepless night and needed something quiet to do. How about a Gothic-Revival dinner gong from your side of the pond c.1880? Those crazy Victorians knew how to get a party started.

Like the drawing but it doesn't give me any sense of scale. Could be a little thing that stands on a table or a huge gong that is in my mind from some old movie intros.

That sketchy style and the diffuse irregular shadow - is that something that can be done in the free version of sketchup?
