When I first was learning how to use SketchUp, one of my frustrations was that the available references were geared toward architectural use of the 3D modeling program. I have nothing against those who design houses, but my interests are the stuff inside — the furniture and cabinets. When I put together the “New Woodworker’s Guide to SketchUp” I focused on the tasks and details woodworkers are interested in, and the most effective way to perform those tasks.
I also included the eventual solutions to things that perplexed me at first, to create the type of reference that I would have liked to have. The image at left, and the link below are the entries in the table of contents. In the actual book, each entry is a link so when you need to make a cabriole leg, or want to import a photo, you can get there right away.
Learning how to use SketchUp will make you a better builder. You can problem solve tricky joints and complex assemblies and arrive in the shop with solid information from your SketchUp model.
