This is a bookcase from Popular woodworking. The plans are available from their website for free as well as the sketchup model. I did the model myself before I realized there was one on the 3D warehouse. I found the model they posted is a little bit lacking.

Lets see your Sketchup Chess Pieces. I’ll start with a Knight.
I’ve started a rough sketchup of a homemade version of the Bridge City Kerfmaker that I plan to build. You can get the sketchup “here”. (link removed… Read the thread for details) If anyone wants to improve this then please do and let us all know where we can get it.
