    After looking over Pedros site and seeing he is using Sketchup, I downloaded a copy.
    Is anyone else out there using Sketchup...

    O.K. Carl, no wisecracks, just a few questions. What is it? What all does it do? What do you think about it?

      The commercial version is rather pricey but there's a free lightweight (and legitimate ! ) version here.

      The folks over on the UK Workshop forum have a whole section dedicated to its use, if anyone's interested.

        Sketchup is a 3D rendering program.
        It allows manipulation on all dimensions.
        I am pretty sure Pedro must use the full version.
        He is meticulous with his work and wouldn't settle for anything less than perfect. That is a trait I could use!

          I downloaded Sketchup and played with it, when I desided to learn how use it, it said my time had run out. Couldn't open it again, so I deleted it.

            Bob,
            Did you down load the free version?
            The free version Google Sketchup doesn't expire and has everything a person needs, unless your into major designing and such.

              Paul,
              Now I'm not sure what I downloaded.
              Does anybody have the link to the free one?

                I am not sure how useful it will be for making patterns but it is fun to play with

                    Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

                    OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
