Where you write, "IE: [.0037 x 8 x 10] = .296-in". where did the 8 and 10 come from? If 10 is the variance, what about the 8?
Great article! How do you change the default so the back faces are green?
Great looking tool chest. Adding Kaizen foam inside the drawers (and top section) would be a nice finishing touch. Available at Rockler or Amazon. It would keep everything from bouncing around and shifting when the chest is moved about. I have it in all my tool drawers so the items don't shift when the drawers move.
Thanks for an excellent SketchUp woodworking video. I am an advanced SU modeler and learned about showing the center point of a circle, which I didn't know previously. Please continue making SU videos.
Here's a tip for you. (I don't get any finder's fee for saying this. I am just a happy user.) Check out the SpaceNavigator mouse at 3DConnexion.com. I could not help but notice the conventional way you moved around the model. This 3D mouse lets you fly around the model (with ease) like a humming bird. A fantastic tool for avid modelers, at about $100 (last I heard.) You can find a great review on it at
