Intro to Sketchup

Learn the basics of Sketchp – a free, online ‘CAD’ program- to help plan and visualize your next project.  We will sketch a plywood bookshelf, but your skills can be applied to kitchen/bath remodels, room layout, furniture design, and more!  Prevent mistakes by planning your cuts, and making an assembly list.  No previous CAD or drafting experience required at all.   Required – a computer and a mouse (scrolling wheel on mouse strongly recommended).
