I finally had a chance today to try out Google+ Hangouts, and I think I have found an exciting and effective way to share techniques for using SketchUp to design, plan and understand woodworking projects. Hangouts are a way that up to 10 people can interact online. With a hangout, you’ll be able to see what my screen looks like as I work, and if you’re having a problem with a technique, I can look over your virtual shoulder and see what’s happening on your screen and help you out.

I’d like to take this for a test drive, so I will be hosting a Hangout this Saturday, June 23rd at noon Eastern Daylight time. I don’t have a formal agenda for this, I’d like to spend about an hour showing some of the techniques from my book, classes and blog. I’ll also answer questions and show how I go about designing and planning furniture and cabinets using SketchUp.

There is a limit of 10 participants, so the first 9 e-mails I receive will get an invitation. If there is enough interest, I’d be happy to hold a second or even a third session. I think there is a great potential to use this technology to share, teach and learn, so I’m hoping to hear your ideas for possible class formats and subject areas.

Leave a comment below, with your suggestions, and visit my website to get on the list for this first of what I hope will be many hangouts.

Thank you for your generous offer but I’m already committed to another event this weekend. However, I want you to know how much I’ve enjoyed both of your DVDs and your interactive, electronic book. If you figure out a way to integrate Hangout into a class, please let us know and hopefully I will be able to take advantage of such an educational offer.
