Drawing a Joggling Board
The other day I received an e-mail from a reader who is learning SketchUp. He was having some difficulty with a few details on the model of a joggling board he was trying to draw. He asked me how I would go about drawing it so I figured a video was in order. Here’s how I did it.
There are a few key things to take away from this.
Enter dimensions and distances to accurately draw things and move them around the model.
Make a component of the part you’re working on before moving on to another.
As much as possible, draw the parts where they will ‘live’ in the model.
Use existing parts as references for new parts.
Note: at about 4:35 in the video I say something about punching a mortise using the Tape Measure tool. I should have said Push/Pull. It escaped my notice until the video was completed and posted here so I’ll leave it as a blooper.
