You Sketch Up - They Will Come.
PDF versionPDF version

A lot of people have made really awesome things here and have submitted their plans using sketch up, but many of the projects aren't sketched up. Because of whatever reason? Probably the biggest reason is they (including myself) don't know how to use it ? But I bet if members submitted their projects by sending a photo, a description of how it was built, angle of degree parallel/not parallel, material and cut lists, etc.. This might open a whole new world up for this site? Maybe not but IMHO I think more people are apt to build things if they can see a sketch up drawing and easy to understand directions etc.?

Members volunteer there plans so... I think you could easily get people to volunteer to sketch up plans for people? Just have a special page dedicated to what all is need from the builder/submitter to sketch them up. You sketch up they will come.

true that!!!

i think thats an awesome idea i have been looking at this site alot lately and some nice projects arent drawn out. and just seeing pics makes it harder the reason i go to this site it due to the drawn out lay outs. makes it even easier for beginners to visually see everything and if something is confusing looking over plans again and visualizing how it all come together makes it easier to figure out.

I have a project of building

I have a project of building out and trimming my kitchen island I'd like to tackle. I'd also like to make as few mistakes as possible. Anyone want to draw up plans for me? I'd be happy to pay $50 or $75. Allihealey@hotmail.com
