Good job on the projects, I just checked out your other stuff. I haven’t spent enough time getting to all of the projects the last couple of days.

I am very excited that you are starting to develope your skills at an earlier age than myself. It looks like you are on your way. The LJ community is a great place to get inspiration and information. With that said, welcome to the club.

I’m going to have to break down and give sketchup a go… Also should be on the lookout for some Alder. So many jocks are making such nice things with. Don’t think it grows in my neck of the woods… Methinks I need more education with the tree identifiction and all.

Do you guys have a shop at home or do you only use the one at school?

I am in Pleasant Grove…Ask your dad if it is OK and let us know where you are… Would love to see the finished product. I am just getting a shop together myself and am pretty excited about it and excited about getting familiar with Sketchup if I get a sec. Downloaded it 2 weeks ago and have never launched it.

Maybe you could write some blog series on how to use sketchup to draw a table like that.

Nice job. I’ve been using Sketchup for about two years. I just started posting some tutorials for woodworkers on the Fine Woodworking knots forum. Sketchup is the way to go for most woodworkers. I have 30 years of design/drafting experience. 20 years with Autocad and many other CAD/graphics packages and I still use Sketchup for my woodworking.

That is a great way to get started in woodworking Lou. Excellent job on the sketch. Your other projects have been great. Look forward to seeing this piece.

Thanks for that info Bob, that really says something about the quality and value of a freebie. Now we really have to take a little time to check it out. Even though I’ve been “going to” every weekend now since I’d read about it online, or perhaps in Make.

so much sawdust to make, and everything else, what’s a creative to do…

Nice job Lou. It would be great if you were to blog the Sketchup application. I want to download it and begin using it. A how to would sure be nice.

Nice design. I’m computer literate, but I have never used a cad program so I just need to get my brain working in the correct gears.

I love sketchup but have used it little, I find for me, it far quicker to sketch by hand. Can’t dispute its value though, it really is a great tool for woodworkers.
