In this video, I show two ways to draw a 8' 1 x 6 piece of lumber. This is an exercise in making anything in square or rectangular shape. I use the line tool and rectangle tool along with turning the lumber into a component. Watch the video and practice, practice, practice. This is a follow-up to SketchUp Free for Woodworkers Extreme Basics #1.

As promised in our SketchUp workshop, I am posting follow-up videos which you can follow and practice which will hopefully improve your SketchUp skills. The first video is live on YouTube via the link below. It shows among other things how to use the mouse and scroll wheel to your advantage and also why you should begin learning SketchUp using keyboard shortcuts. I'll have more videos in the near future.


This is my first video and as I get used to doing these, I hope the video quality will also improve.

Any suggestions or comments, let me know.

Baleno cars come with high-quality suspension, such as Macpherson Strut for the front wheels and Torsion Beam for the rear, to ensure that its passengers get an uneventful driving experience, even on bumpy countryside roads. Baleno tyre size of 195/55R16 is ideal for a hatchback of this size baleno car on road price. Ventilated disc brakes on all wheels prevent skidding on slippery roads. A
manual handbrake makes it possible for Baleno cars to remain stationary while parking as it prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards.

General Discussion / Why has the waiting period of ...
Last post by DomingoSpear - April 02, 2019, 11:43:45 pm
Apparently because of the high demand of Maruti Suzuki Dzire LXi in India right now it is bound to happen that the waiting period will get increased as conveyed by source dealers of the expressed drives. The MPV is receiving an overwhelming response because  of which there has to be balance in the demand and supply chain of this MPV.  As within a week nearly 10,000 bookings have been made and is continue to increase drastically. Henceforth customers have to wait for atleast 16 weeks to get the car delivered.

Resources / Would like to make a donation
Last post by KeithB - January 22, 2019, 09:14:32 am
Hello, my name is Keith and I'm a wood collector, read that borderline hoarder.  I've been saving piles of wood that I've cut and taken the nails out for "someday."  Someday isn't coming for me.  And if it does, I still have sources.

What I would like to do is make a large pick up size, or possibly larger donation to your facility.  I read about you in Shelby Magazine.  This is a good cause and will free lots of room in my garage.

I know you typically get wood from habitat, but where I work has experienced some unfriendly episodes from the habitat people.  So I would prefer to donate direct.

I have 1x4s, pine, yellow, white and some even pink.  Most cuts are 40 to 48 inches, some are longer.  Reading that you make pieces as small as bunny ears, some of my shorter boards may also qualify for donation.

While the 1x4s is the largest stack, I have other sizes as well.  Also have some small pieces of hard wood.

If anyone is interested, drop me a line here or shoot me an email.  I have enabled email here, but don't check it every day. 

I tried twice to send a message through the home page, but received mailbox full notifications both times.  At first, I tried from my job, and just thought my company was blocking the message, but tried from home with the same result.

SketchUp Group / How to draw a box in SketchUp,...
Last post by JeffBranch - January 19, 2019, 07:06:18 am
A good video on how to use the rectangle tool enabling you to draw a box which could represent lumber or plywood, etc.


Next you will need to turn that box into a component. See this video...


Remember these steps when making a component (I prefer components over making a group): triple click an object to select all faces and lines of the object (remember 1 click selects the face of the object, a double click selects the face and the bounding box and triple click selects all of the object). Then the keyboard shortcut to make the object a component is "G". Give the component a name such as leg, or top for example. To return a component back to loose geometry, select the component, right click it and select explode.

In both videos, the user is using keyboard shortcuts. Learning keyboard shortcuts makes modeling much easier especially learning all that the mouse does. See keyboard shortcuts here:
