On this CD, you'll find the 27 detailed SketchUp models that were built to generate the illustrations for the book Furniture in the Southern Style: 27 Shop Drawings of Furniture from the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts
. Working with these models is as close as you can come to physically taking apart original examples of priceless antiques. With the free Google SketchUp program installed on your computers, you can:
- Closely examine every furniture part and every joint
- Develop and print detail drawings and cutlists
- Explore construction details
- Use the provided models as a starting point to develop your own designs
Google SketchUp can be downloaded, free at sketchup.google.com; it works on both PCs and Macs. More information on using this program is available at www.popularwoodworking.com/sketchup.
