On today’s show we’re talking about SketchUp for sissies, moving a shop, blending 3d printing and fine woodworking, and do Matt and Marc feel inferior because the don’t mess with electronics like Bob Clagett?
We are joined today by a guest host, Bob from I Like to Make Stuff!
What’s On the Bench
- Bob is making a bathrooom light, an auto creeper, and getting ready for a move.
- Marc is batching out chair parts with the MultiRouter.
- Matt is making a swing thing.
- James King made an awesome Extreme Bench Vise:
- Matt has some goofy intros for us.
- Thor has thoughts on carrying stuff on his person around the shop.
- Tim wants to know if Bob plans to do another arduino blast gate system in his new shop.
- Daniel needs some advice on sanding and refinishing.
- Ashley – “Ok one other question idea. Is Sketchup for sissies? That’s the impression I got recently when taking a class on CNC for Fine Furniture-making. Instructor said don’t waste your time learning Sketchup as it’s too hard to make usable 3D models for CNC (or I’d imagine 3D prints). What’s your experience been? I’m tackling the RhinoCAD learning curve now, what would you recommend to listeners?”
- Saint Nicster – “Listen to both making it and Woodtalk, I would like to facilitate a dialog about moving since we all like unsolicited advice ;D Bob, any questions or things you would like to publicly bounce off Marc? Marc, any advice or small things forgotten about to publicly pass along to Bob? Selling off tools in current location vs moving them to new location. At the very least, maybe a floor mat vs carpet square in the shop discussion to include David Picciuto :D”
- Nick – “For Bob – do you envision any projects where you combine 3-D Printing and “Fine” woodworking? Maybe a Queen Anne table with Light Sabers for legs? Or perhaps 3-D print an entire bandsaw mill?”
- Chris – “On a 3-person podium (bronze, silver, gold) of “Bobs who are synonymous with making things”, where does he rank himself as compared to “Bob the Builder”, and Bob Vila? Sorry – I don’t give softball questions :-)”
- Page – “Here’s a question for the group. Bob’s something of a mixed-media guru. Matt and Marc, are there any projects you’ve envisioned, but held off on because you lacked a certain skill/capability or it didn’t fit your audience? For Bob, you often like to take on projects that are beyond your skill level, or brand new to you. Are there any fine-woodworking projects you’ve considered but avoided due to difficulty?”
