« Part 16: My saga continues -- really starting to get some ideas now though Part 17 of Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride series Part 18: Drawer sides -- struggling along »

I was not going to do any more on this project tonight—- but could not sleep. So I piddled with the drawers for the hall table. They are not pretty. The box resembles and box joint box—but that’s about it. I still have to work out how to to interface with other parts. But that will come. For now this is the box I’m working with to make a drawer for my table. I am using 3/4” material here, but will switch to 1/2 material on the real project drawers.

So without further ado—- here is my masterpiece. :-)


Geez you guys have no idea how badly I want to be making sawdust and nicking my fingers with my chisels or even smelling the sweet smell of freshly jointed wood. But alas I must work on design and play with this computer until about mid-September at the earliest as it stands now.

So fellas—make some dust for me and appreciate it!

If it is any consolation, we all really appreciate how hard you have been working on teaching us this software. I, for one, would have given up long ago (and have given up several times in the past). Your persistence has given me w new will to learn.

Thank You

BTW, what screen capture program did you settle on? I noticed it in the blog you posted earlier today.

Thanks Dave. I’ll try this a bit later tonight.

Lew – I went with Gadwin Printsceen. It seems to work well. Thanks for the link.
