Draw ceiling lamp for wood cutting

wood cutting

Software: Sketchup


 – Curve: Draw curves

 – Push: Change object’s thickness

 – Array: When you move or rotate an object, you can copy it by press number and x or / (exam 5x, 5/ …)


First, start with rectangle. I always with a rectangle, to make a face and then I can draw everything on this face with draw tool as curve, line or freehand…

Use curve to draw a curve on that face to make a rail of lamp


Beacau the rail mirror then I only draw a half and then copy and flip it.

Then I make that rail to a component (press G – defaul). If I make a component, then I can fix one object for all the same components copy.

Draw a circle to hold the rails


Push the rail with high same thickness wood


Rotate and copy the rail component: Choose the component, then use rotate tool (Q) to rotate it, with center at center of the circle. And depend angle of rotate, you can multply or divide to copy components.

Exam: If you want to rotate 12degree, and copy to 30 component (for 360degree of all) , you can do 2 ways:

– Rotate 12 degrees and hold Ctrl to duplicate, then press 29x (multiply)

– Rotate 360 degrees and hold Ctrl to duplicate, then press 29/ (divide)




Push the holding circle with the thickness of wood


Scale to make the lamp as you want


Test lampshade: You can creat a light bulb to render and test shading

– Creat a Light bulb


– Apply material and texture for lamp


– Render to test shading


When you feel everything ok, comeback sketchup and export rails, holding circle to vector file, prepare pattern for wood cutting (by CNC, laser machine, or by scroll saw, carving wood…)

Sketchup is a 3D sofware, it’s very easy to use, but can creat complicate model. I usually use it to modeling pop-up cards, or wood cutting model. Today, I’ll show you the way a wooden lamp is created in sketchup. First, creat a polygon ( the number of edges as you want), here I creat a polygon with 20 edges (press 20s and enter after draw a circle). On each edges, creat a curve, you can make a shape as this: Tutorial-design-table-lamp-flower-in-sketchup – Delete polygon and contour (F shortcut) for this Tutorial-design-table-lamp-flower-in-sketchup-1 – Make group for parts of it.

[Tutorial] Love park pop up card

Hi everyone,
Today I show you the way to make a love pop up card. You can see the card as image below
To make this pop up card, firstly, you must have pattern. Please download free pattern here
You print that pattern to A4 paper (or paper you use to make card). Then please follow the step-by-step instructions below to make the card
– Step 1: Cutting outline pattern, you have many pieces (You can choose color for each piece). There is some diffirent from background piece to pattern because in pattern I divided background to 2 pieces (a half for A4 size)
– Step 2: Put first layer on background
– Step 3: Put second layer to background
– Step 4: Put some pieces together as this
– Step 5: Put part from step 4 between the first and second layer, and glue 
– Step 6: Fold tree and bench as this
– Step 7: Put tree and bench pieces into correct postitions
– Step 8: (Important) Glue 2 small pieces between the tree and the second layer. It’s very difficult to fold flat your card without them. (pieces in red cycles) 
Now you can finish your pop up card in your way. 
You can add more ivies, people or something to the card as you want. Here I give 2 examples: For love, and for F.A (just kidding xD )
The first card, a kissing couple with lighting colors for card, as a gift for love
The second card, a lonely man with darker ton of color, for the sad 
  Hope this artical useful for you.
