Sketchup is a powerful and free computer aided design program perfect for all types of woodworking projects. Whether you are looking to make quick mock-ups, or create detailed build plans, this two day class will help you to beat the learning curve and become a more effective and efficient designer. 
This class is perfect for those with little to no 3D modeling experience. Instruction will begin with setting up the program, learning to navigate through 3D space, using basic CAD tools, and creating various woodworking joints. You will then move on to digitally construct multiple pieces of furniture, starting with the basics, then progressing to more complex designs. In addition, you will also learn how to create annotated plans, exploded views, and full scale printable templates. 
A laptop with the latest version of Sketchup is required. A mouse is highly recommended
