    Another SketchUp Book

    I guess I'm tooting my own horn.


    The eBook I was working on has been published by The Taunton Press. There's also a DVD which is designed to stand on its own but also adds some detail to the book. I've attached the Table of Contents as a PDF file.

    SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers: Advanced Techniques, the eBook
    SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers: Advanced Techniques, the DVD

    And the basics video (they aren't eBooks)
    SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers: The Basics, video download
    SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers: The Basics, DVD

    The book shows how to draw things like the legs on this table.


    These flame finials.


    And the legs and serpentine front on this small Sheraton-style table.


    While you might not be interested in drawing these exact things, I would hope you'd be able to see how you can apply the methods for your own models.

    After benefitting so much from the first DVD I am very glad to see this. Is the Pro version of SketchUp needed for much of it or can we cheap skates benefit as well?

    What I had a chance to look through over lunch looks good so far, really looking forward to giving it a good read Dave.

    No, Glenn. Although there are a couple of references to some pro features, the vast majority is applicable to the free version, too.

    I hope you enjoy it, Darren.
