I have been doing a series of articles for Furniture and cabinetmaking magazine recently. Here are the links to view which magazine thet are in.
There will be another coming out in a few months also.
The magazine and website are a really useful resource for Furniture and cabinet maker. The forum is also pretty active.
After my initial drawings last week designing furniture using sketchup, I have to say I don’t think I will ever use a drawing board again!
I have to admit at first the programe was tricky to get to grips with, but now after about 20 hours I have produced four drawings for some fitted furniture.
The thing that really sells it to me is the speed of communication with the client and the ability to make changes and being able to import a flat screen TV to the propsed unit.
In a nutshell it is quick, versatile and looks really professional. A great tool for furniture makers.
