  1. If you shave used Sketchup and tried to print off a full sized pattern, you probably ended up with a LOT of extra blank sheets. Recently, Matt Donley posted a video describing the steps to take to reduce those wasted pages. Check it out!
  2. Woodcraft has made available a free tutorial on using Sketchup. Check it out at- https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entries/the-best-of-sketchup
  3. Recently, I was wanting to make a few templates to make a rocking dinosaur from a illustration I saw in a book (Jeff Miller, Children's Furniture Projects). The following is my approach to obtain full size templates. Danl 1) Scan illustration using home computer and file scan in JPG format. 2) Import JPG file into Sketchup. Position imported object into one of the standard views (front, back, top bottom, left, or right) 3) Draw over the the object you want to make a template for. Make each piece a component and make the entire dwg a component. 4) Hide original imported object. 5) Scale entire component to obtain desired size. 5) Using Sketchup, print 1:1 This method allow you to estore the master copy and to have thin object lines to use when sawing/sanding. I still need to tape the printed sheets together and adhere to template material. JPG imported into Sketchup. Drawing complete. Drawing printed 1:1 scale

  6. Need help using SketchUP. Can an edge profile be added when the edge was created using the "freehand" tool? Iso, how is it done? In the inserted pic, the first object was created using the "line" tool and the second one was created using the "line" and "arc" tool. I was able to add a 1/4" round over profile to each. The 3rd object was created using the "freehand" tool. I would like to add a round over profile to it also. Danl
  7. This was a fun thing to do.... I drew this up in Sketchup and isolated each piece and transported a *.jpg rendering of the piece..... and then took a similar picture of the actual.... The sketchup drawings are the ones with the blue background.... 2nd in the sequence.

  11. I try to use Sketchup for designing my flat work; I know it's often faster to use paper and pencil. But, what I like about Sketchup is the ability to create a cutlist from the "Cutlist" extension. That way I can get a more accurate idea of the amount of materials necessary for the project, but the last couple of projects designs left me scratching my head as to why the cutlist didn't show what I thought the correct layout should be. A few of our oldest deck pieces had finally given up the ghost. Using their design, this is a leg I needed to create new tables that looked like the old ones- The dimensions of the leg were 2.5"w x 1.5"t x approx 14" L. The cutlist, however indicated I would need this to make one leg! Notice the blue "bounding box" Sketchup placed around the leg. The leg is diagonal. The blue box surrounds the entire "area". Cutlist interpret the material size as the entire blue bounding box. I knew I was doing something wrong so, knowing "Google is my friend", I went searching for the answer. What I discovered was that the "axis" of the part needed changed so that Sketchup and Cutlist both looked at the part and its' orientation. The Sketchup leg after changing the axis. Notice the blue bounding box is only selecting the actual piece. The cutlist diagram is also now correct. Much better! Sketchup provides a native tool for making these "adjustments". Rather than trying to describe the process, here is a video from Joe Zeh ( http://www.srww.com/ ) at Swamp Road Wood Works. Mr. Zeh is a great source for Sketchup information. I love Sketchup!

  20. Free sketchup plans for an Old World Dining Table from Jeff Branch- https://jeffbranchww.com/2018/02/25/free-woodworking-plan-old-world-dining-table/
  21. A long time friend asked if I could build some cabinets for his daughter. Her house was one of the many that flooded during Hurricane Harvey. We went to look at the house this past Sunday. Every house in the neighborhood had debris piled up on the sidewalk. As I think back, I realize now they were actually pretty lucky. Water did get in the house but would recede after the heavy rainfall would let up. Then it would rain again...and again... As it turns out, his daughter wants to remodel the kitchen with an entirely different lay out. I think this caught Chuck by surprise. He had already told me he would be paying for the cabinets. So, to keep this story short, I took notes and measurements of the existing layout, but dang it, I forgot to take pictures. Oh well. She wants to demo the pantry and relocate the fridge in that spot. Build a new pantry where the fridge sits now. It juts out into the walk through, and she is not a petite person. All bottom cabinets would have drawers instead of doors, and that I agree with wholeheartedly. With cabinets demoed, the new ones would go to the ceiling after the fir down is removed. And she wants a white kitchen. UGH! Oh, I forgot. Then end cabinet on the stove side would be a trash can pullout. Before going into any great detail and creating a job quote, I decided to draw up what she is asking for. I sent the drawings to her last night. I also asked if they knew anyone that could do the demo and frame up the new pantry and close in the old one after a wall is taken down....relocate the electrical and water supply for the fridge and tape float the drywall. I would rather just stick to building cabinets. For a small kitchen, this would greatly increase her usable space. A new cabinet above the fridge would provide good storage for the big gumbo pot! That is where our pot resides. And on the sink side, the upper cabinet on the left can be widened (as indicated) because there is blank wall space that was never used. And no breakfast bar. The pony wall is there just no bar top. Chuck said he was going to put new granite counter tops on the cabinets, so that would be a nice touch. The current rang and vent hood are circa 1979 harvest gold! I guess it is wait and see for now. Mike Note: The Sketchup drawings show the new layout. I didn't bother with drawing a cabinet over the window or the vent hood, but they would be there.
