Fine WoodworkCurved Zig-zag ChairWibur GoltermannThis minimalistic chair was originally designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1934. The design is functional and comfortable. Its simple lines and minimalist joinery belie its incredible strength. The original design uses three-way interlocking floating tenon joinery, today's version relies on the accuracy and repeatability of the Festool Domino floating tenon system. This chair is not only novel, but is attractive and fairly easy to build. The download file includes a Sketchup file containing my own modification to the chair which adds a bit of curvature to the original very straight and rectilinear design.curved_zig_zag_chair.skpCurved_Zig_Zag_Chair.jpg
Fine WoodworkFoote CabinetJohn WillcoxJohn supplies both a jpeg image as well as the Sketchup 3D model you may download. If you are not yet acquainted with Sketchup, consider downloading it from http://Sketchup.com/download/all where you may find both the free version (really all that any of us need), and the Pro version. It is suggested that you start up with the free version until you have gained some ability to use the program. Then, if you install the Pro version, you will get eight hours of use of Sketchup Pro, after which it will revert to the free version. Let me reiterate, \"the free version is all you really need\"FooteCabinet.skpFooteCabinet.jpg

Fine WoodworkHybrid Pedestal Dining TableWilbur GoltermannThis design is an adaptation of a piece found in \"Dining Tables - Outstanding Projects from America's Best Craftsmen\", published by Taunton Press. This is a hybrid between a pedestal table and a legged table. The clever thing is that the four-footed pedestal separates into two three-footed legs when pulling the table top apart to add leaves. This gives diner comfort and seating versatility of a pedestal table, together with the expandability and versatility of a four-legged table. The download file is a Sketchup 3D model. With no leaves, the table is 44\" x 44\", with three 20\" leaves it is expandable from comfortable seating for four, all the way to a 104\" x 44\" table for eight.diningTable.skpTable_with_one_leaf.jpg
