Does the thickness of the mortise's sides have any bearing on the strength of the joint? A 3/8" tenon in a 3/4" thick piece (e.g. a web frame) leaves very little material to resist a blow against the flat surface of the piece. Because of this concern, would a 1/4" mortise and tenon be a good compromise?
Thanks for the article. It is appreciated.
Oh, I forgot to mention that when I right-click on the image the last entry in the dropdown menu reads "Add Photo Texture".
Your paper towel example involves a small width. Try painting a 4'[ or 5' wide object. Then you may see what I'm experiencing using SketchupMake.
Thanks for your assistance.
The Cutlist Plugin relies on the Materials Feature when identifying each part. So by naming the materials with the wood species and saw cut (plain, rift, quartersawn) it makes it clear for the hardwood dealer to understand the project's needs.
No, "Use as Image" is selected. The file is a .jpg file that has been cropped to omit unwanted portions of the photo. The only way I can get to the material submenu is by selecting it from the Window Tab dropdown menu. Then I have to key in the path to the .jpg file, and click on the Create Material button.
Having down the above, painting larger objects results in seeing a repetitive pattern.
Tim, SketchupMake does not work the same as Sketchup Pro. Specifically, after importing the image, right clicking on the image does not include in the drop down menu "Use as Material".
It appears that your technique solves the problem of seeing repeated images on a 4' x 3' bedroom dresser face.
Being able to see a model with natural wood grain and color is helpful in choosing what species and saw cut to choose.
Your blog is most helpful.
When orbiting in any of the scene tabs, the content of the all the other scenes come into view. It appears that each scene would also have to be made a layer so that their content can be hidden when orbiting within a scene. Is this correct? Really like your book!
