In this video I show you how I draw a side view of an end table.

All comments good or bad appreciated (just getting the hang of doing this type of video)

Thanks for the video. I use Inkscape too. I didn’t know about the measure thing at the end and that you can snap one object to another. I don’t use inkscape to design stuff I like sketchup better.

Tip: There’s a quick way to space those four pieces apart equally. Under the object menu there a align and distribute option. In there there’s all kinds of options to align and distribute objects really quick and easy.

I also use sketchup, But a lot of people still like to design in 2D (pencil and paper) and that’s where Inkscape comes in. My goal with the videos is to get the basics down and then move on to the more advanced stuff.

Glad you got something out the video as that is my goal of doing them.

Another good quick tutorial video for using inkscape. Definitely good to know about the dimensions, and a good trick for the tapering. Thanks for putting this one together
