SketchUp for Woodworkers - Part 1: Getting Started
This ShopClass is comprised of our series of 12 lessons in the basics of using SketchUp (a free 3D-modeling program from Google). The video lessons on this CD take you step by step from setting up the software to gathering information from your finished model. So you'll head to the shop with all the information you need to build any project with confidence. You'll know the exact sizes of every part, and how the parts go together – before you ever cut any wood!
