    Solidworks?

    I agree with Chestnut. Looks like a revolve with some combine features would get you there. Another way would be to use construction planes and form the swooping layers on each, then combine with the triangular pieces. You could make the whole thing use parameters so you could very quickly change the shape and feel of the design quite easily. The use of parameters would also allow you to create the base shape then size it to your workpiece. Another way would be a combination of the above methods and using the shell tool for removed material. You can change this on the fly as well. I usually create a parameter for shell to see what different thicknesses will look like. Possibly another way is to use the mesh model feature. I have very little experience with it, but it looks like you could really come up with some cool designs using that method.

    Sued for cutting tree

    You're being sued for cutting down your own trees? I know what I would tell them.
  10. Sorry... I've been away for a while and didn't see this. Did you figure out what's going on, or do you need a hand?
  11. Everyone has access. I've posted several times here where to go.
  12. Best would be to break down with a jigsaw. Especially if it's not flat/square...
  13. For $20 per slide, you could have gotten Blum soft close and had money left over.
  14. What did the rest of your day bring?
  15. Being frustrated is a good thing. It means that you aren't willing to accept "good enough".
  16. Thanks Gotta use that click bait man... Something like, "I bought some wood and followed the plans, what followed was completely unexpected!"
  17. Whoever designed this really did a great job! Glad to see an actual modular set-up to accommodate different shop sizes! Killer job getting these together so quickly!
  18. Not intending for this to be a Festool commercial, but , you really do get what you pay for. Most bits are cheaply made and many drivers have poor retention so a crappy bit wobbles in a crappy driver. Not a recipe for success. I know someone will scream due to the cost... but Since I've been using the Festool bits with their drill/driver, I no longer look at them as consumables. Used properly, they last. I bought the installers kit several years ago, and haven't replaced any of them yet. While we're on it, the Festool Centrotec system is just fantastic. While we're on that, their drill/drivers are great as well
  19. No tool scares me... however there are some people that do!
  20. I get an alert whenever someone makes an alteration on my design.
  21. Yes, but there is only one king Nice work bud!
  22. lol, yep Times are tough! A few emails and maybe a phone call to settle a 4K machine. You'll be fine man.
  23. Liz is awesome... She'll figure it out. When I bought mine it was 10% down, rest was a wire transfer. The check thing seems safer
  24. I knew there was a reason I blocked you years ago.
