Default FYI: Sketchup Article in this month's Finewoodworking

It was interesting to see a piece in Fine Woodworking (Taunton Press) on Sketchup this month.

I will take a better reading of the piece (as a noob to CAD software) in a bit.

The mag is prob'ly the November 2007 issue.

Default I've been playing around with it...

for a couple of months. It has a little bit of a steep learning curve, but once you start working with it, the curve flattens out nicely.

No expert here, but take the time to play around it. That way you can "visualize" your projects prior to building

You need to add some braces to those.

A SketchUp of my (future) kitchen.
