« Part 5: Easiest tappered legs ever Part 6 of Sketchup Models series Part 7: Sketchup Challenge »

I’m no DaveR so this might not be that tough of a challenge. I had not done any sketchup in a while so I just wanted to keep myself sharp.

This a quick little Christmas project that I cut out of scraps of 2×4’s. I didn’t event the idea but I did do my own little sketch to work with. You can find my project and the scanned sketch here.

Nice job
All I want for Christmas is for a brain implant that installs sketchup.

Thanks for all the help Dave. That first one was last years model. This year I’m trying a few changes. I haven’t made it yet but I was having trouble with the model. Your trick for upsizing the model while working on it worked great.

And if anyone wants to try it… hear is what I started with.

Thanks again.

Horse design thats cut the same way as the deer. I’m not happy with the tail yet. Its gonna take some thinking to figure out how to make this come out by still only making cuts on two planes with the band saw. I’m not carving or sculpting here, I’m going for bandsaw two sides and done.
