Shorter tenons? Tapers on the legs? A deeper reveal? No problem. But should I need to modify anything or make any adjustments, I would be up a creek without a paddle.
And with practice, using the proper methods will be MUCH faster. I am just new to some of this so it takes me a bit longer. Think of it like learning how to type. When you initially learn the method, you are probably faster hunting and pecking. But once you get some practice, suddenly your fingers are flying and it becomes second nature. Same thing with SketchUp. I felt very accomplished after Day 1 and I am excited to see what the second half will bring. Total time investment for day 1 was roughly 2 hours.

Figure 2. The opening screen. SketchUp 8 Figure 4. The dialog box for setting units of length. I prepared this book using SketchUp version 7. Shortly before the book was com-pleted, Google released version 8. The upgrade contains a number of changes andnew features, but most make it easier to draw buildings or landscapes, not furniture.
Other changes appear only in the for-pay Pro version. By and large, SketchUp 8looks like and works like SketchUp 7, so the instructions in this book still apply. SketchUp 8 has a couple of interesting new features that should appeal to wood-workers. The Scenes dialog box now displays thumbnail images of each scene youcreate.
See chapter 15 for more on scenes.
There is a new face style, called BackEdges. It shows hidden edges of an object as dashed lines. In orthogonal views, the BackEdges view also makes the sketch look more like conventional mechanical drawing,with dadoes, grooves, and other hidden elements rendered in dashed lines.
