SketchUp plans in 'Resources'

Were you aware the 'Resources' section of NCWW can now accept SketchUp files? For the past month I've been uploading some of my plans to share w/ others. All of these are plans I created in SU, mostly from my own designs w/ one noted exception. And w/ that one exception, I've also built these pieces from those same plans over the past 10 years.

Each of the plans is designed from a woodworker's perspective to be used by woodworkers. All of the joinery and interior details you need to actually construct a piece are included. My SU skills aren't great but in each case I think there is enough detail to get you started. You can also take the plans and make any changes you want w/ just basic SU skills.

My main reason for putting these plans here is that they can be used as a 'how to' for beginners. We often see questions here about how to do certain operations when it comes to furniture construction. With SU plans a user can see a detail in 3D from any angle they choose.

Finally, if you have SU plans you created for any type of project I encourage you to share them here for the benefit of others. Regardless of your level of skill in SU, someone else may be able to benefit from them.
