Location: Mission, TX

I have been doing some type of woodworking for about 10 years off and on. Started building Chicken coops and went on to buy more tools and then discovered scrolling. Several years back I had to build my first shop and turned out so well but had to move back to Texas to be with my parents and three years ago built a cinderblock shop on what was a garage. My brother did most of the work my parents and I helped but it was long and dedious work. Once completed I set up shop. It has been move and changed several times to now. My parents started using it as an outside tv room and strorage until I told them I needed the space and out went sofas, tv , etc.

the room is 28X28
(this is a work in progress)

Hello Evelinda,

Let me welcome to LJs. I am sure that you will find this to be both a rewarding and an inspirational part of your woodworking journey.

Evelinda, your question will get more attention if you post it in the forum or blog section. But the short answer I can give you on the two is that Sketchup has a steep learning curve to it. We have several member here who are experts in the use of Sketchup. One of the DaveR has posted a series on designing a small table that is helpful for beginners.

As far as Cutlist goes it is much easier to learn and I think it is a good inventory program (if you update your material) and it is a good program for setting up sheet good cuts.

Hope this helps.
