SketchUp for Woodworkers: bring your designs to life in 3D

By craftshome / 9. June 2018

Let me teach you the basic methods I use in SketchUp as a professional illustrator and designer with 20 years experience in woodworking magazines!

I have drawn thousands of woodworking projects for magazines in the UK, US and Europe, and currently illustrate 2 top UK titles, Furniture and Cabinetmaking and Woodworking Crafts.

I also run SketchUp for Woodworkers, one of the fastest growing communities on Google+ with over 4000 members!

SketchUp has been a big part of this process. What a great drawing program, with a fantastic FREE version!

Just in case you are having trouble finding Sketch Make, the free version you can install on your computer, go to the SketchUp website and then navigate to /download/all where you will find lots of versions in many languages, 64 and 32 bit, for PC and Mac.

Learning the basic tools is just the start though. You can save yourself so much time and effort by using a few simple methods I show you in the course.

Using these techniques, you will find it much easier to design and draw your own projects!

Drawing in 3D can be huge fun, seeing something you have imagined coming to life.

It can also be a bit daunting at first, and without a clear structure to guide you, its possible to get a bit lost. This is why you need my course.
