    Need sketchup help please

    My church mens group has been tasked with making a manger/stable for the youth group to use at Christmas eve service. It will hold several children dressed and shepherds and maybe a barn animal or two. The manger we had before rotted out after being stored in the carriage shed for many years. It's only used for 20 minuted once a year, Usually in the snow and ice.

    One of the guys came up with this idea. A local lumberyard will donate the lumber and I get to donate the shop and tools

    I would just make the sides one piece but this is his idea.

    I would like to take an assembly drawing of this thing to the meeting in the morning but I have never taken the time to learn sketchup. Any help would be appreciated.

    Well, that materials list doesn't make a lot of sense to me, but I took a shot at some framing for it.

    I think I have the guys convinced to do something way more simple.


    I have no idea why or how the tomato orzo soup thing got in there

    Bob, that does look like a better plan. Especially considering how little use it'll get.
