So here is the design for the cabinet…

The Design

The two top drawers are designed to hold a ton of bits, far more than I’ll ever need.

Here is a pic of the construction without the drawer fronts and cabinet door.
The case construction

These two pics show off some of the dimensions.

So how many hours does it take to do just the 5 drawings in sketch up?

Its all one drawing, I just move pieces, hide pieces, and take screen grabs so you guys can see all the asspects of the piece.

I probably have about 5 to 10 hours in this, but only because I did a lot of changing things around to get exactly what I wanted… if I had drawn it out first and really thought it out, it wouldn’t have taken me half that long.

I’m not doing well at learning this. These are what I want to do but it is eluding me.
