Dredging up the Past


#1

A couple of versions of a small cabinet from the Arts and Crafts, Stickley period.


#2

I’d like to see a nice Chippendale writing desk or secretary in walnut next :star_struck:

Aaron has already described ho to make the tapered legs:


#3

Give me a few minutes to get SketchUp fired up and see what I can do.


#4

How about a lowboy instead of a desk?


#5

nice but imagined something more like this :yum:

just kiddin’


#6

That would take me a few more minutes.


#7

fear you do mean this serious ggg


#8

The hardest part is getting up the interest to model it. I’m not much of a fan of that style of ornamentation.


#9

it’s a little bit ahum over-designed, there are much nicer simple ones.


#10

Yes. Imagine having to clean that thing!


#11


#12

Forget the Lowboy. Show me a Cowboy.


#13

Amazing work, Dave, as always. Thanks for sharing.


#14

Nice work. I love the way you make the grain so realistic.


#15

Thank you. As for the wood grain textures, it helps to use images of entire boards instead of little squares that have to repeat on the surface.
