I have never used sketchup to really do any project. I, however, wanted this project to go smooth and for it to go smooth, you MUST have a plan. I didn’t want to go and just wing it and screw something up. I’m building this for a lady to give to her grand daughter so I wanted it to be something that could be handed down for generations. The drawing is what I have come up with. It will be able to hold 8 pictures in the front that can be interchangable as the years progress and life changes. You can see all the dimensions on there. It will be made from cherry with cedar lining the lid. it will also have lots of mortise and tenons. I’m still in the planning phase. Any comments, suggestions, or critiques are more than welcome.
