« Part 1: And so it begins Part 2 of The making of a woodshop series Part 3: Part 3-A little progress »

I’ve made a sketch-up model of what I hope it will look like in the future. I’ll share those views with you. The shop teacher said they are finishing the other garage and will be working on mine next week! yipeeee, I will continue to take pictures when the construction gets started.

I can see them also, in fact I can almost smell the freshly cut sawdust.

Can I ask where you got the tool models for SketchUp? I’d like to create my “perfect” workshop and see what I’d require for dimensions.

I can tell you where he got some of the models such as the miter saw, clamshell cabinet / small parts bins, and most likely the bar clamps… From my collection in the 3D warehouse….

Go to the 3D warehouse, and search for BigDaveF150. The stuff I have worth sharing is there, and some stuff that isn’t…

The Miter saw came from another collection, I simply changed colors on the saw to represent my B&D Miter saw. The bar clamps were simple bar clamp models I modded to length to fit what I have (and there are more in the model, I have 6”, 12”, 24” and 36”), and the clamshell cabinet / small parts bins were drawn from scratch.
