An Introduction to SketchUp 2021 | Woodworkers

Ever wanted to start designing your own woodworking projects? It doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. In fact, SketchUp is often regarded as the most user friendly option for 3D modelling beginners.

This 7 part series will take you through the entire process of modelling a beautiful Shaker Table, including a dovetail drawer, in both a fun and informative format. While also covering all the best practices and little tricks of the trade throughout.

When designing the online course, Matt wanted to make it as close as possible to his own experience learning at Rycotewood Furniture Centre in Oxford. Primarily, by providing a structured course that anyone can follow, without having to find their own way through an arbitrary list of videos on YouTube.

    I think I’ll do it myself this week. I just got instructions from Woodglut and I’m ready for it: D

    I like the background in the video. Have any better shots of the shelves?

    So you can`t generate a cut/material list with Sketchup?

    Cool. What I’d like to know is if its worth upgrading to a paid version. Most videos Ive seen so far are made by illiterate power users and by that I mean they basically read the website product sheets and shill for the company, this includes a guy who writes/publishes Sketchup books for professions.
