No, I didn't forget that I'm writing a blog. Yes, it was a long time since I wrote anything here. I am really sorry for that. I'm just fixing thousand things all at once in an important part of our software (and I intend to blog about some aspects of that - as soon as I can find a little time to prepare the article).
In the meantime, I'd like to show you a little of what I do in the free time - make stuff from the wood. No real photos today (for the curious, there is a gallery on my web site), just two SketchUp models.
First a table I've been building for my wife's sister and her family. It will be made of ash and is currently in a preparation phase - half of the wood have been planned and cut to size and other half is still in a raw form. Dimensions are 100 x 80 x 35 cm and I think it will weight around 50 kg (yep, lots of solid wood here).
Another project got stuck in the designing phase - my 'customer' (I only work for friends and family, I'm not selling products on the open market) decided that she will continue to live without a coffee table.
It ought to be a simple wood-and-glass table, looking roughly like this (all rough edges are courtesy of my inability to draw nice curves with SketchUp).
If somebody wants a deeper look, I can provide the SketchUp source files.
