    Kevin Rodel's Prairie Settle

    Just something I banged out last Sunday before church. Except for a wee bit of cropping, it is 100% SketchUp. If anyone is interested in how this is done, click on the picture for an explanation.

    Very cool, Dave. This method of displaying something can highlight a special feature (as you mentioned in the blog), or add more information to a single image, and do it in an artistic and aesthetic manner.

    Hi Dave ,
    That really looks like a choice project to build. I can see it with a real thick pad over the seat, and maybe a throw over the back, but I think I would lessen the depth. I intend to go see your explanation but it will be later. Thanks for the banging before church!!!!!! The neighbors won't complain, they love that kind of banging!

    i like the bench a lot and i would not change the depth as it changes the style a bit.... i would add a pillow at the back as well as at the seat... enjoy...

    Thank you for the nice words Robert and Clara.

    It looks like maybe I need to work on the cushions a bit. They are covered in leather. The original has some lacing on the edges but I was too lazy to draw that so I drew them as shown.

    Oh, and Robert, I've learned to be quiet with this sort of banging so I don't wake the neighbors. They have no idea.

    I think Clara has a point about size change, but I am thinking about for my house. I don't have room for that kind of depth.

    Oh Dave,
    The neighbors are amost always the last to know!

    Robert, usually I'm the last to know.

    By the way, that settle is only 35" deep. Here's the back view from Mr. rodel's site. You can see the leather covered cushions on it.

    Ahhhh,

    Thank You!

    I see.

    Rather nice, aeems to make a statement. Maybe the statement is

    " I'm here! In front of this fire, I was here first, sit on me? Okay, that will be much better for us both than to try to move me! I was here first! We can enjoy each other, but don't push me!"
