    Cabinet Hardware in SketchUp

    Here is a little thing I did on an approach to drawing hardware such as this drawer pull. I hope it gives you some ideas. Click on the picture.

    Nice to be reminded that actually *not* being obsessive about detail can pay off....
    So do I type something witty here?

    Yeah. It took me a long time to learn that.

    Here's a drawing I did before that.


    The roller chain is drawn to scale and all parts of the links are drawn as individual components. Fortunately, since I drew the link parts as components they don't add an awful lot to the file size. Still, I went so far as to to put in as many links as were used in the real thing. Kind of geeky but I do have a PHD in Over Engineering you know.

    11! No.....make that 19 or???? with the name you are making for your self.... signed of course maybe 42, and then since you are such a young guy I may have to wait a while ( these being considered your Early Works) to turn a real big buck, so don't expect a return on your investment any time soon............ BUT... LOOK FOR IT!

    I'm not that young so you won't have to wait too long for that return on your investment. Just don't go out and by that Lamborghini just yet.
