A Few Recent SketchUp Scribbles

Where to ask all your SketchUp related questions or share your skills (in the case of our resident Guru Dave R…).

Robert, the gong is 16 inches in dia. Does that help for scale. If it was a table top thing I believe you'd have to call it a "ging" not a "gong".

The sketchy line styles can be used in SketchUp Make but the tool for making your own only comes with SketchUp Pro. There are a number of sketchy styles included with SketchUp Make and you can get more of them. I've got a bunch of my styles available here and there are some from others, too. The shadow thing is done by taking a shadows only export from SketchUp and running it through a freeware program called Fotosketcher (Windows only at this point) andthen combining the result with the sketchy style.

Rod, does your much small version do what it says? If so, I should get one. I suppose, though, if I wanted it to bring whisky, it would need to be bagpipes. :D

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.




Nice sketch, like the shadows.

It won't work in our house. :lol:

As a kid we had a small silver bell which summoned us to dinner.

It wouldn't work well in my house, either. Neither would a small bell.

When a friend of mine was a child, her father had a whistle from a steam locomotive up on the roof of his garage he used to call the kids for dinner. He connected it to an air compressor. It worked well but on more than one occasion the 5:15 made an emergency stop when the engineer heard that whistle. :lol:

I haven't shared any drawings for awhile and in case there's anyone still needing kill a few seconds...

A queen-sized bed.

A side table based on one from 1950s Italy.

A quickie sketch to show a jig for cutting dovetails on the bandsaw. The jig was designed by someone else. I was just presenting a modification to allow the angled guide to be locked in position at the request of another woodworker.

This is a wall cabinet designed by Nancy Hiller. She was inspired by the work of Victorian Gothic Revival architect and designer Bruce Talbert

Another view.

This was posted in the September/October 2018 Fine Woodworking as a download.

The design could also lend itself to a wall clock with a glass panel in the door to see a pendulum.
