Here is a more accurate SketchUp model of the Thorsen House plant stand, one of the projects that students can build in my “Real Details of Arts & Crafts Furniture” class. The model in the Popular Woodworking 3D Warehouse collection is similar, but contains some changes from the original. This model is closer to the original, which can be seen at the Huntington Museum, and is based on the drawings from my book “Shop Drawings for Greene & Greene Furniture”.
In the near future, I’ll be posting material lists for these projects, as well as recommended tools to bring to class. If you want to spend a week in the shop picking my brain and learning how I build furniture, I hope you’ll join me in Indiana.
All of the models for the class are available free online in the 3D Warehouse.
