I am a Biomedical Equipment Technician. I maintain anesthesia and respiratory equipment for the largest medical facility in southeast Minnesota. I also do some training in the use of that equipment. My wife, Kari and I have a three year old son, Ian.
In my spare time I like to work in my garage woodworking shop. Ive made a wide variety of wooden items from salad tongs to boats. I started using SketchUp several years ago with version 3. It is an ideal tool for the woodworker. I use it for designing projects, working out joinery details and figuring out the order of operations to make efficient use of my time in the shop. My drawings range from simple sketches with little detail to completely rendered images used for presentations and publication.
Ive made a wide range of SketchUp models from tiny parts for medical equipment to large architectural and other construction projects. Most of my models, though, are furniture and other woodworking related items. Ive been helping other woodworkers around the world learn how to use the program for about three years. Im excited to be teaming up with Fine Woodworking, Bob Babcock, Tim Killen and the rest to help you learn how to use this extremely useful workshop tool.
