Five years ago I published “Woodworker’s Guide to SketchUp” in enhanced PDF format with embedded video. Today I released an updated, revised edition with new images, new videos, and new chapters. The text reflects changes in the SketchUp program and improvements to the way I make models. If you’ve been meaning to learn how to design, plan and trouble-shoot your projects with 3D modeling, this book will get you up and running.

Check it out and see a video preview on my website

If I pay for and download the 1.4gb file, will be able to save it onto a dvd so I can have a hard backup of the ebook?

Yes you can. And if you lose the dvd, get in touch and I’ll hook you up with a fresh download.

Thank you for posting, I’ll go to the store. I noted you used Google Sketchup, I have to assume this will run on Trimble.

Ordered! Hopefully you offer a whole lot more than what I can get free from other sources. SketchUp for Woodworkers does a great job with the basic concepts but he only takes it so far. Jay Bates and Matthias Wandel both have some instructional videos out, but they haven’t organized it all into a book like you have. I’ll report back after I completed the course and give my impressions.
