Give Away: Bob Lang’s “New Woodworker’s Guide to SketchUp”

He is highly regarded as a SketchUp instructor and each year teaches SketchUp classes at various locations around the USA. Having reviewed SketchUp teaching products from Tauton Press, I wondered how Woodworker’s Guide to SketchUp would differ from Tauton’s competing ebook by Tim Killen titled SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers. Home Grown To call Bob Lang’s publication a book or an ebook does not do it justice because it contains a lot of video. The SketchUp newbie should look upon video instruction with happiness. Video is something that Tim Killen’s ebook does not have and …
