I Use Wudworxs On A Massive Breakfront

few months ago, at the Alabama Woodworkers Guild, I was talking with some of the SketchUp users about Sketchucation, a website devoted to SketchUp. I said that this site is where all the serious SketchUp users hang out, but I rarely go there since I don’t geek out on SketchUp. One of them looked at me and said, “So you don’t think you geek out on SketchUp?” Clearly he thought I do. Well, I am here to tell you that I have officially become a SketchUp geek because I recently bought a SketchUp extension called Wudworxs.
