Please note that whilst my username will appear against most of these postings, I cannot claim any credit.

These are, primarily, due to DaveR.

DaveR video of dovetails using the mirror and component facility

Adding Materials to the Library

Creating half-lap joints

How to mitre mouldings


If there are any errors or additions that you would like to make then please post here.

Any offers for further tutorials?

Thanks
Neil

Hi Rich

Sorry for not replying, I've been away with work all week.

Tim has made the best suggestion.

Cheers
Neil

Hey Neil very nice post I must say. More than it I liked your simplicity as you are not claiming even for credit. I liked your honesty. Good on you.

if you go to finewoodworking.com Dave has a blog there and I'm certain you'll find the video on it by searching.

If you watch any of Jay Bates stuff on youtube, he'll often do a video of designing the project in sketchup before hand. He narrates everything he's doing and explains how, why and what he's doing in a very easy to understand manor. While I'd consider myself relatively accomplished for what I need at sketchup, I always learn something new by watching him. Even if it's just a new shortcut!

+1 For Master Bates. I installed Sketchup a year ago and for someone with over twenty years experience in DTP and page payout programs I found it it far from simple to use and soon gave up. Having watched Jay talk through the design process and his incidental use of Sketchup along the way I was inspired to give it another bash. Eleven hours later, I've created the same design, getting a little more detailed and faster each time. It could be simpler (perhaps the Pro version has the features I feel are missing from this freebie version) but got far further with it today than I ever have before.
