Google Sketchup Woodworking Plans

I made up this video today of a work bench i am making at the moment, almost finished so i will put up some pictures of the finished workbench soon,

I made it so i can use it as a router table also,

Google sketchup is great for designing woodwork projects.

I have a book which is great for learning how to use Google Sketchup, its called Google Sketchup for Dummies, there is a link to the right of this page or you can get it here,

That looks like it'll be a great bench. I like the fact you worked a router table into it. That will be really handy!

Thank you for sharing. I am a novice woodworker and appreciate others who are enthusiastic about wood working. I am still struggling on sketchup7 but true grit may yet prevail. Take it easy, keep up the good work!

TJ: i'm impressed with the video, What do you use to Edit your Video, If it is Cyberlink, Where do you get your Overlays like the newspaper and stuff, That was great...

And the bench is Really nice also, that would be Great for me, I have a Craftsman Professional 10" Tablesaw, with a Router Wing, I would eventually like to get rid of the router for it's own table.



hi guys,

Thank you all for the comments, Simply Alon theres a great book for learning about sketchup which ive posted on the blog, this is really helpful and instructive, Handi i used windows movie maker to edit the video, it has all the things built in and if you have windows xp it should be on your computer.. free.
