These DVD tutorials help you master SketchUp (a free 3D modelling program), focusing on the elements that are most useful for woodworkers.

The Basics shows you how to set up SketchUp and gives an overview of how to use the program’s design tools efficiently. The 66-minute video explains how to draw a quick concept sketch, then refine it with joinery and woodworking components to create detailed scaled plans and full-size templates. The DVD includes a sample project with a digital plan, a cheat sheet of commonly used commands and shortcuts, and a full transcript of the video that lets you easily find a particular section or review the information.

Advanced Techniques presents 3D modelling exercises to create scale models of furniture pieces and period details. The 76-minute video explains how to use various SketchUp plug-ins and extensions. You will learn how to work with scaled-up copies, lay out joinery and even manage your workflow. Projects include a sewing stand, an Adirondack chair, a Pennsylvania spice cabinet, a Shaker-style knob and a flame finial.

A computer with a DVD drive is required, with Adobe Acrobat Reader version 8 or higher and SketchUp version 8 or higher. To view the videos, you will need Apple QuickTime Player version 7 or higher or Windows Media Player version 12 or higher.

Length: 66 minutes.
