Let me teach you the basic methods I use in SketchUp as a professional illustrator and designer with 20 years experience in woodworking magazines!

I have drawn thousands of woodworking projects for magazines in the UK, US and Europe, and currently illustrate 2 top UK titles, Furniture and Cabinetmaking and Woodworking Crafts.

SketchUp has been a big part of this process. It is a great drawing program, and although its hard to find, you can still download the FREE version called SketchUp Make.

Just in case you are having trouble finding Sketch Make, the free version you can install on your computer, search for SketchUp Make in Google and follow the instructions. This is a different and much more powerful version of SketchUp to the online browser based SketchUp Free.

Learning the basic tools is just the start though. You can save yourself so much time and effort by using a few simple methods I show you in the course.

Using these techniques, you will find it much easier to design and draw your own projects!

Drawing in 3D can be huge fun, seeing something you have imagined coming to life.

It can also be a bit daunting at first, and without a clear structure to guide you, its possible to get a bit lost. This is why you need my course.
