    A Sheraton-Style Leg in SketchUp

    I was doodling around trying to learn how to use SketchUp and this fell out. ops:


    It's based on a leg that Philip C. Lowe is doing in the Video Workshop series on FineWoodworking.com.

    Would anyone find a tutorial on drawing this thing of interest?

    I wouldn't mind seeing how you do it. Now for the real challenge. Lets see you Make a Hilton style leg, as in Paris Hilton...

    Wow. That would be quite a bit of editing.
    Hmm, several bits of 'lathe' work. A moderately complex profile and extrude it and scale one end? Maybe not as bad as I first thought. How long before someone writes a SheratonLegPlugin :-)
    So do I type something witty here?

    Don, I figured you could do the Hilton leg tutorial.

    Tim. You gave away my secret. Of course it's just a plugin that generates the whole thing. It'll draw any leg. Enter the style, the year and Bob's yer uncle.

    Oops. April 1st isn't for a few weeks yet, is it.

    Actually, it isn't very difficult at all. I'm working on a tutorial.
