Project Plans
« on: January 24, 2009, 08:58 AM »
Good Morning,
Yesterday, I was browsing through all the great projects posted here in the FOG.  It's amazing, not only how much work members have put into their projects, but also how much effort goes into documenting projects with text and photographs.

But there's one more element we'd love to see -- project plans.

I decided to create this discussion, as a place for people to post their project plans.  Here's my idea...

If you have posted a project, please add a post here with your technical drawings, handwritten sketches, or other plans.

Doing this will help projects be shared even better with other members.  By posting all the plans in this discussion, we can have an easy way for other members to see a full listing.  We can also provide links to the actual projects.

My image is that, with time, this could become a virtual "plan book" of sorts.

So, post your project plans here!

Thanks,
Matthew

Great idea.  Having a scanner would help. 

Most posted projects by FOG Members are well documented including pictures.

Adding a "Cut List" would help. 
Don't know if that is asking too much.

Yes, I realize there are varying levels of technology in member shops!  If people have the option of scanning plans, that's great.  If they are handwritten plans, that works (actually, I think it's nice to see handwritten plans).  If you use some kind of software that outputs your plans, that's great too.

Of course, some of us are able to work without plans!  In those cases, posting cut lists would be great help.  Again, they can be hand-sketched or done with software.

Thanks,

By posting photograph(s) of those pieces of wood!  And the completed project and of various stages of completion of the project and its components together with dimensions and other words describing them.

These are two post and beam arbors I'm building in Boston (yaay boston). I never drew a complete detail of the purlins but Ill include a pic. The top of the last purlin on ether side of the structures is flush with the top of the header so the detail dies into the plane of the header.  Each purlin is beveled leaving a 2x2 square on the end of it. The length of the bevel is reduced by the same # as does the height. This creates a secondary elips of sorts on the underside of them. The larger one is over the driveway and the smaller one is over the walkway.  His house is on a main st. with a hospital 1 block away and its very noisy.  The ideas is that once the vines have established themselves it will help deaden the sound of the road.

You did great with the pictures!  Like your work  in the photos also.  Tough to design for the end wall and make it useful.

Keep going.

Peter, Joe,

Thanks for the compliments.  The most difficult aspect was trying to cram as much usable storage as I could into such a confined space.  Peter nailed it by mentioning the end wall.  The first plan was to have rollouts in the bookshelf to make some of her items easier to get to, but was nixed since she still would have had to reach down into a narrow area to reach and the rollouts would not have much room to come out anyway.  I'm glad we ended up using adjustable shelves, since the homeowner removed the bottom shelf and uses it to store large rolls of craft paper and other larger items.

I'm particularly proud of this one for a couple of reasons: 1) It was my first job using my TS55, and 2) this was quite literally the first job I ever sold/designed/installed as an owner/operator after being laid off.  Still getting used to being self-employed, but I don't think I want to work for someone ever again...

Jonhilgen - what type of slide did you use for the pullout table?  It doesn't look like your typical slide.  I'm in the process if building my wife's craft room and I know she would like a similar pullout.

One idea for an inexpensive solution to getting from hardcopy(i.e. pencil/pen & paper) to digital -- use a digital camera, carefully.

Though it takes some practice, a digital camera is a considerably more practical solution these days than a scanner for most individuals.
If you use that in combination with a tripod, and a little ingenuity, you should end up with a practical alternative to a scanner.

Take a look through some how to photography websites and/or books for more details.

Yeah, once again, MDF.

My next job I'm actually going to use paint grade maple for the bookshelves.  I'm moving up in the world!  Going to start cutting it up Monday (right on time for my QWAS cross cutting jig arriving Monday)

It would also be great if anyone wants to post Google Sketchup files.  If you haven't used Sketchup, I highly recommend it.  It's full 3d CAD... for free!  Lots of support out there and there's even a plugin called Cutlist that will automatically create cutlists based on the drawing.

Sketchup can be downloaded from Google at http://sketchup.google.com.

Thanks Jonhilgen,  Not done yet.  Many problems.  Permiting and mildew [scared] to name a few.  I expect I should only need 10 or 12 people to fool safe, but I'm hoping for a hundred.  The zoning board has given me such a hard time I want to call all the local news stations and make a big show of it.  Its a organic hand made arbor what's the big deal.  anyway check out the pictures on the Member Projects page.

They made me do renderings and we still don't have the permit yet.  It will go up it will go up it will go up, thats my mantra.  Fall would be nice, good working weather.  Although there are black walnuts that are ripe and lethal around then.  Maybe some FOG hard hats would do the trick.

Woodsman,

Love it down here (but it's a bit hot in winters), but miss the family terribly.  Thinking of heading back up North since grandchildren will be on the way shortly.  Just need to find work first (and a house, and trade in my truck for something with 4x4...)

I would like to see Festool come up with a plan for a workbench to support and be used with the Kapex.  I must be the only one that is looking for a design for this tool.

Nugene,

First,   [welcome] to the forum.  If you are looking for a stand for the kapex, there is a smaller MFT designed to hold the Kapex.  Festool also has extension arms that fit the Kapex, and has recently introduced in the rest of the world a new rolling stand for the Kapex and new extensions.

Are you talking about something different?

Peter, What I had in mind was a wooden workbench with an extension on the left side and right side that allowed you to cut trim to length.  This would have stops that adjusted to the size you wished to cut.  Like they use in a framing shop. The saw base would be recessed in the table so that the cutting area is even with the extension.  Hope I explained myself.  I've seen the Kapex table and that is not what I am looking for.

Nugene,

Gary Katz, who travels around with his Kapex uses a folding metal stand and extension wings that were self built.  Here is a link to his drawing:  Gary Katz Extension Wings

The brackets he uses are no longer available, but modifications can be made.

Hi all
When I design or layout a unit I always use a program called "Design Workshop" (I say always coz I have been using it for coming close to ten years now  [eek]). You should hopefuly see two pictures below the first is a "print out" from the design program that I used  to design the unit. I also use this as a conceptual drawing to "sell" what I can offer the client . The second photo is a photo I actually took today of the complete installed unit.


28743-0
The Final Design as done on Design Workshop

28745-1
A Photo taken of the final product

For those interested in downloading this program and its tutorial for FREE. Yes... its a working sample of the program that you can download for nothing! Do an internet search for Artifice free download. It took me when I first started with this program, about 2 hours to "build" a house with doors and windows a pitched roof with chimney also a porch and handraing with steps leading up tho the porch. From what I understand it works much the same as Google Sketch, (although I have never used GS myself...) The only limitation on the free program is you cannot save a file that has more than 100 objects... I have a rather laborious process around this limitation, should you you wish to know feel free to message me...

till later
Graham

Is thes easer to use the Google's sketch up?

As I have never used Google Sketch Up I cannot give an accurate answer to that question. I have however tried to use another program called Solid Edge I have also tried to use Auto CAD. If I had put more time and effort into the latter two programs I may very well have got them down pat, I suppose I didn't because I just like the simplicity of Design Workshop. You can choose to build an object in 2D or in 3D in color or in a "wire-frame" all in all I find it quite simple. From what other people have told me about GS  I understand the two programs work in a very similar fashion so you should pick up DW quite quickly if you have been using GS. But do not expect to master the program in two hours. you will have to go through hours of tutorials.

Here's a few more examples that show what I have used the program for in the past:

28767-0
The concept drawing I showed the client

28769-1
A photo I took of the completed Job

28771-2
The concept

28773-3
A photo taken during instalation

These pics below show where Design Workshop is lacking in a big way... everything related to curvatures, sweeps, archs etc you have to make them all blocky. I used these pics to help me visualize all of what had to be done in the making of the curved handrailing. What is very nice about the program is the ability to almost be able to "hold the item in your hands" and look at it from any which way angle of your choice. you can walk through rooms walk through walls  [big grin] zoom in and out.

So I am about to hand a quotation in for an Oak TV unit. Its a monster Plasma TV. The client is looking to have something more old fashioned as opposed to most modern day flat screen units. The client wants a similar finish to that of my curved handrailing found in the members projects. Below is a design I have come up with and I am interested to hear all of your comments and suggestions.
Thanks

Couple of questions, What are the proposed dimensions? How big is the tv, speaker units and all that? Will the receiver be on display or hidden in the cabinetry? The columns on either side of the tv, is something going in there, such as equipment or discs?

Personally I'd like to hide as much as possible of the equipment leaving only the bare minimum exposed, not sure hot this works with remote controls and the like but ideally I'd like to only see the screen surrounded by woodwork. keep in mind I also have a tendency to vastly over complicate projects so go with what works this still looks nice in my books

AWESOME!! So it seems like I am on the right track.

The overall dimensions are 2000 by 2000
the TV is 1220 by 770
each doors is 300 wide by 335 high
The doors will be a "partial inlay" fit to the face frame.
The speakers will be mounted in the two cupboards either side of the TV, I then plan to cover these two cupboards, just behind the face frame, with a another frame wrapped with normal speaker fabric. this will make the entire opening look like a custom made speaker. I may need to adjust the height of these two cupboards and add a shelf if it looks too big and ugly... if you know what I mean.
All the DVD, Satalite decoder, sound etc etc will be inside the cupboards below. The remote control will not be a problem as it is not infra-red. Everything... and I'm not kidding when I say everything... is networked with a single wireless remote that controls ALL the TV's in the house. All the speakers scattered in different places can be controlled individually too... The whole unit will be standing on casters. This will allow for easy installation of all the components and the major mess of wires that connects the lot. All this is done while the unit is away from the wall. When finished it gets wheeled back to fit snug against the wall and skirting.

So I have been asked to make a table just like the one in the pic below out of wood... I am assuming they want me to make it out of wood because this one is either painted and they cannot get it as a wood finish or because this particular one is made from welded steel...
Obviously the Domino joining system comes to mind... how do you guys think the joints will hold up if made with Domino's???

Just a thought, it may be possible if you could bore out a 12mm hole and insert a length of stainless steel rod which could somehow be mounted to a bracket on the base of the table and could be hidden by the top of the legs.

If I had skills with Sketchup I would draw something.

The load bearing would be taken by the rod then.

How would you bore the 12mm hole through the legs straight? Them legs don't look short. I'm only asking not saying it's a bad idea.

With a jig on a floor mounted bench drill. The jig would hold it at the angle required and a long bit used.

JMB,

Cut over length. mount on a lath and end bore them, via  the tailstock. Its how you bore a turned standard lamp. Or split the section route out a groove  on both bits and re laminate

Oh!

Well you would only need a plate big enough to fixl all 4 legs to the and then stick the frosted glass to the plate.

I think you guys are onto the right idea of hollow legs with steel inserts... something that I had definitely not though of... Fortunately for me I know how to weld... I grew up on a farm and metal work was what I did before I started with carpentry... so it looks like I can do the lot on my own...


I forget about jigs lol cus they take time and don't always have the time to make jigs so always think alternative options ie a tool which can do it with no jig.

Hey JMB did you hear about the lumber Jack who did not have time to sharpen his axe??? He was too busy cutting down trees...  [poke] [thumbs up]

I think this is a great idea! But... suppose this thread is a huge success and hundreds of plans are posted... how you'll find the one you like? Shouldn't it be better to have a seperate forum in here where every thread is a project plan? Maybe the moderator could comment on this?

I agree. This should be a separate Topic with individual threads for each plan. Shane to the white courtesy phone.

+1 on this idea. I was going to post exactly the same suggestion as I made my way through the thread, but Dany beat me to it.

Now all I can do is second his suggestion. PLEASE?  Pretty Please?! [smile]

I do mine in Sketchup and put them up on the 3D Warehouse.  Any Sketchup user can access and use.  Some have more joinery detail than others.

A bow-arm Morris chair is up there with all its Domino joinery detailed.  I did a study of Ron Paulk's plywood takedown bench last night, shown here.
 
The Stickley "Highlands" trestle table operates with equalizer slides available from Moin Hardware for about $350, really nice.  The pub table is from a catalog of Simply Amish furniture.

This is a small built in shelving unit with the trim made to match the existing chair rail in the room.  [unsure]
I really don't want to mill it custom, but if I can't find it that may be the only option.

Now just waiting on some green boxes to arrive to get started on it.

Hall coat tree bench
« Reply #59 on: February 28, 2015, 09:02 AM »
Something I did using Sketchup, just for interest.  I've no plans to build it.

Would be a pretty easy project, all domino joinery.  Dados and stopped dados in the stiles and rails for the 1/4 inch panels, mirrors in the top three central panels.  Would look good in something like rift red oak, or done in soft maple with MDF in the panels, for a painted job.

About 32 wide by 6 feet tall.  Up on the 3D Warehouse, search "hall coat tree bench."

Good Morning,
Yesterday, I was browsing through all the great projects posted here in the FOG.  It's amazing, not only how much work members have put into their projects, but also how much effort goes into documenting projects with text and photographs.

But there's one more element we'd love to see -- project plans.

I decided to create this discussion, as a place for people to post their project plans.  Here's my idea...

If you have posted a project, please add a post here with your technical drawings, handwritten sketches, or other plans.

Doing this will help projects be shared even better with other members.  By posting all the plans in this discussion, we can have an easy way for other members to see a full listing.  We can also provide links to the actual projects.

My image is that, with time, this could become a virtual "plan book" of sorts.

So, post your project plans here!

Thanks,
Matthew


 I've never used computer aided plans. I measure the area to be infilled find out the components  needed
 and hand sketch the overview on paper.
