I have recently started using SketchUp after a few unsuccessful previous attempts. You Tube tutorials helped me this time round. I find SketchUp quite useful as it helps me to put ideas to virtual paper and it also helps to print out templates which came in quite handy with my first attempt at making wooden handscrews.
My first blog entry is a wooden CClamp. I have seen a few of these made on the net (YouTube and LumberJocks) My one concern is that there is an inherent weakness where the uprights join the backbone. This is my concept to overcome that weakness. Any Ideas and inputs will be appreciated which could be incorporated in the actual build test.
Below is a picture of the CClamp and the SketchUp Model is available over here.
