My SketchUp Models

I use SketchUp a lot to assist in designing woodworking projects and to provide illustration for my blog posts and woodworking plans.

Click any image to start a slide show where you see the images close-up. There will be a tiny “x” in the top left corner which you can use to return to this page.

Also, see my SketchUp resources page by clicking here. It has a number of tips and links to video instruction, most of which is free.

I have begun creating in SketchUp, what I consider notable woodworking projects from Fine Woodworking magazine. These are furniture pieces which I drool over, wished I could build but probably won’t due to the size and expense of making a copy. So, I can at least make a SketchUp model of them. And at the same time force myself to do more difficult SketchUp models. These models are accurate in every way; I am pulling dimensions and molding profiles directly from the magazine articles and I have searched for accurate materials…

    As a novice sketchup user, how would you suggest going about getting more proficient at using such software?

    Hello Jeff, thank you for sharing you models.
    I am interesting at making a moravian bench but it don’t find your model in you warehouse (cf URL last post). Do you share it ?
    Best regards,
    Adrien

    • I have not put the model in the 3D Warehouse. It is based on plans by Will Myers. I think the plans which were once on his site have been removed. Popular Woodworking sells a DVD/download which should be what you need.
