Sketchup seems like an awesome tool for furniture design. I’ve read tons of blogs/posts that talk about the utility of the program, but every time I’ve tried to use it I get frustrated and give up. It’s a little intimidating and, at least for me, not very intuitive.
With a new baby in the house I’m doing a lot more sitting at the computer and a lot less making saw dust in the shop. I figured I’d capitalize on the down time and learn how to use Sketchup.
I found the Ana White tutorial through Google this AM, and have been pretty impressed with the basic explanation and step-by-step instructions for creating a basic book shelf. It has really helped me figure out how to use the basic commands in the program and get a feel for moving components around in the 3D environment.
Here’s the link in case anyone else is interested.
Also, I think it would be really cool to see if anyone has any other tutorials they’ve found that are particularly helpful.
