Written from a woodworker’s perspective, it doesn’t show you how to layout a roof, or place a building in Google Earth. It does show you simple, proven methods to model detailed projects in a few simple steps, and how to use a model to make your time in the shop easier and more efficient.

  1. I would like to know if you plan to update Woodworkers Sketchup to version 8 in the near future and if so when?

    1. Hi Ian,

      At the moment it is only available on disc, but the good news is that I ship for free, no matter where in the world you are. First class mail delivery takes about a week to get from here in Ohio to New Zealand

  4. What is the difference between this book and the “Shop Class on Demand” version that you authored for Pop Woodworking?

    1. Hi Ron,

      The “Shop Class on Demand” and the “Shop Class-SketchUp for Woodworkers” discs are all video, the book has 184 pages of text with short videos embedded every few pages.
