Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride #25: Reinserting back apron, hide group, outline, x-ray view and questions, of course

08-12-2008 07:01 PM by Betsy | 1 comment »

Heading into the home stretch. I redrew some of my table to point out some things I was learning. However, I left off on my hall table with a few problems (OK – more than a few) that I’m working on fixing. Specifically, I need to redraw my back apron because somewhere along the line I erased the back edge and did not make it a component. Because I did not make it a component, when I drew in my drawer runners – the runners broke the face of the apron. Secondly, I redrew my dr...

Malaysia Lumberjocks Gathering: 100% Attendance!

08-12-2008 04:18 PM by Eric | 14 comments »

Today was the first (and only?) meeting of LumberJocks in Malaysia. Masrol (a.k.a. woodworm) came over to my place because he was interested in buying my router (my last surviving power tool, unless you count my woodburner). We also exchanged some woodworking books and magazines. It was a nice meeting, although too short and without sawdust or shavings flying anywhere. Hopefully this won’t be the last gathering of woodworkers in Malaysia! (Although it will be more difficult for us to...

RESTART to Starting Your Business #7: Business Lessons from the Godfather

08-12-2008 03:49 PM by Ad Marketing Guy - Bill | 0 comments »

The Ad Marketing Guy’s favorite film is the Godfather having seen it well over 100 times including GFII and GFIII. I feel there are truly infinite “business whispers to grow by” contained within the 8.75 hour trilogy. What better way than studying the ”Family” in trying to grow your business. Truly, we should be able to draw Business Wisdom from this American icon. This posting focuses on business lessons that embody the wisdom of The Godfather — rules that all business ...

Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride #24: Web site for Sketchup

08-12-2008 11:38 AM by Betsy | 2 comments »

I have the Google Sketchup for Dummies book and it gives a website to go to for tips, etc. It’s listed in the book as, but I could never get that site to work for me. So I ended up tonight just e-mailing the author, Aidan Chopra, for help. He sent me a different link and I wanted to share it with all of you. I’ve looked at a great deal of the videos and they are well worth the time to view. Happy sketching!

Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride #23: Hall table project

08-12-2008 05:39 AM by Betsy | 2 comments »

I know you have all probably have had enough of this blasted table by now, but the repetition is helping me learn. I’m trying to blog about a few of the smaller things that I’ve picked up that I did not know before and that others may not have known. Some who are more computer savvy—- please look away and or forgive me! The first shot just shows that I’ve drawn out guidelines for the footprint of my table, my first leg which has the mortises cut in. Pretty basic ...

Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride #22: Scale tool ---- I DID IT!

08-11-2008 11:33 PM by Betsy | 0 comments »

OK – I know I’m a slow learner – but I finally got the scale tool. One thing DaveR pointed out that I honestly did not see before is that when you select a tool from the tool bar – an explanation of what that tool does appears in the lower left corner of the window screen. If there is a toggle option it will also show in the explanation. So here’s my short video on how I used the scale tool. On to making the joints. Thanks for looking. As you can se...
