A Round Table with a Glass Top part 1
The other day I was poking around the Internet looking at various used furniture sites and came across a small round table with a glass top. It was made in Hungary around 1910. I decided to use the table for a bit of SketchUp practice and came up with what you see here. The only information I had to start with was the overall dimensions and a couple of images so the rest of it is made up on the fly.
This model offers some good practice with the Offset and Push/Pull tools. It also gives you an opporttunity to think about ways to streamline your modeling by utilizing parts of the model you’ve already drawn.
In this part I’ll draw the basic geometry for the table. In Part 2 I’ll put a carved detail in the middle section of the legs, add joinery details and apply materials.
Note: at about 4 minutes into the video I said that Option C is the shortcut for Edit>Copy on the Mac. I should have said, “Command-C”.
