I’m at work right now and don’t have SU on this computer. But last evening I decided the best way to get moving on this was to put aside trying to do anything fancy (layers, components, MT joints, etc.) and do a simple table. So I spent about three hours or so putting a table together. The table is based on episode 11 of the Woodwhisperer’s pod cast. I plan to take it one step at a time and go into detail of each step. I’m not going to do anything fancy like move, copy, tapers, etc. The only fancy thing will be guide marks. This will be an excercise in redundancy of effort. Such as you’ll be forced to make 4 legs instead of one. But I think the practice will be good. Get the basics down and then the fancy stuff will really be easy to get. Doing this this way will help you see the various mistakes you can make and teach you how to avoid them.
I had a lot of fun making the table. I think I ran into some “ah that’s how they do that” things that hopefully will help someone else.
If you have time, watch Marc’s podcast and then check back tonight on my blog. Hopefully we’ll all be on our way to mastering this program!
