Hi Joey

I was going to leave this comment on your blog site, but it is not working correctly and forces me to sign in with my google account details (but not a google site) which I do not like

Nice looking hutch, but the internal materials look a little heavy (3/4” I think) try reducing the shelves to 3/8” or even 1/2” also the main dividers, the sub dividers try 1/4” make it look a little lighter? Traditional cabinets rarely used 3/4” stock throughout. You will be surprised how strong a piece of 1/4” stock really is.

Thanks Tony,
I agree with you and it’s one the next steps in my learning process with SketchUp I really need to start showing the expanded views and adding the dimensions what I have been posting is really my first rough ideas not the refined drawing. However I like getting the feedback on the designs thats why I started posting in LJ it’s all part of the learning process and I am trying to improve both my skills in designing as well as SketchUp

Thanks and have a Great Day
