I just released An Intermediate Google SketchUp Tutorial – Part 4. For those of you who have been following and taking these tutorials you are really going to like this one. If you want to craft bracket ogee feet like these,

You may want to drawn them first in SketchUp like this.

Then you can use life size cutouts for templates.

Second, you learn to use .jpg files (or other supported image files) as templates to trace in SketchUp. You can take pictures of your favorite furniture piece and import them to SketchUp and accurately draw the piece.

Check out this tutorial series at http://www.srww.com/google-sketchup.htm.

Wow, impressive drawing. Looks like the picture. I’m curious in how much time is involved in this drawing.

Hi Keith,

If I am drawing for myself and not a tutorial it takes me maybe 20 minutes to draw the entire set of feet (draw one, make it a component and place the rest). These are not hard to draw. If you are already a SketchUp user try the intermediate tutorials on bracket feet and cabriole legs at http://www.srww.com/google-sketchup.htm (parts 4 & 5). you will be surprised how easy it is.
