    SketchUp Drawing Exercise No. 2

    Using the box from the warm up exercise, let's make it a little more fancy. If you need to redraw the original little box, here's the dimensioned drawing.


    Clicking on the image should take you to a larger version of it.

    Now add dovetails at the corners and a profile to the top of the box.




    Click for bigger.


    Click for bigger.

    You have a week.
