Some time ago I posted asking for ideas about some "L" shaped sofa tables
I'm planning to build to wrap around an "L shaped sectional. I thank all
It is going to be a while before I get around to actually building them but
I've stolen some moments from my hectic, what doc do I see today retirement
life to diddle around with SketchUp to figure out what I'm going to do when
I actually DO get around to chopping wood.
For any of you who might be muttering, "WTF is SketchUp?", here is a jpeg of
the tables as they will be. Someday.
For those of you who know and love SketchUp and view it as quite possibly
one of the most useful programs ever written, here is a link to the skp...
If you do look at the model file I'd be interested in any comments, negative
or positive. I pretty well have it in my head as to how I intend to build
it but ideas are always welcome. My current vacillation concerns
electrical. The tables sit 4' or so from the nearest wall and there will be
lamps on them; thoughtfully, I had a floor outlet installed when I built the
house but I'm still not set on how I'm going to pipe power to the nether
regions of the tables.
There are four main things in the model file:
1. all three tables hooked together, not much info as to how they will be
built. The long tables are one component, the little square one another.
2. a leg and portions of the top showing the structure
3. a leg and portions of the bottom shelf showing the structure
4. part of a leg and a height adjuster; I need this because the tables will
be sitting on a Saltillo tile floor and there is no way all legs will
automagically rest solidly.
Each of those items is on a separate layer. There are also layers for each
that contain my notes, comments, mutterings, etc.; I like to be able to turn
off all that text when I am drawing.
