Free SketchUp Video: How-to model the chamfered post table
All nine videos of Tim Killen's SketchUp series, following a piece from start to finish
Several months ago, I started a series of videos on the modeling of the Chamfered Post Table represented in my eBook, “SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers”, Chapter Nine. Many of you took advantage of the initial series, so I’ve assembled a Playlist that includes all eleven videos. The playlist as shown below at first displays the first Stage, however, if you click on the icon in the top left hand corner, you can scroll through the whole list, and select any of the 11 videos.
The table itself is a historical piece, probably built around 1700 in Connecticut. A document provided by the Connecticut Historical Society listed important overall dimensions.
These 11 videos cover the complete modeling of the Table and cover classic construction procedures applicable to many kinds of furniture:
- Basic carcase construction with legs and stretchers
- Mortise & tenon joinery
- Drawer runners and kickers
- A breadboard Top
- Drawer construction
- A turned drawer knob
