I found a great site that has some high resolution wood textures that I’ve been using in sketchup. If you go download my thoreson sketchup plan I made for you guys in my projects and just copy and paste it a few times like I did in this picture, you can mix and match woods up how you like and see how they look in 3d first. Here’s the site:
Just download whatever texture you want and in Sketchup make a new “list” in your materials panel called “User” or whatever. Then, select color and choose “new texture”. Import the file that you downloaded and it should automatically size it just fine. Hit okay and you should be good to go. You can apply it to any surface. Just a hint…. you can use this same process by taking a picture of wood with your digital camera and then importing it the same way.
