    Default Sketchup, concept to completeion

    Hi,
    I have been playing around with sketchup for a little over a year now. It is a great tool to have even though I still have a lot to learn on it. I'm not sure if anyone has done this before but I thought it would be cool to start a thread of projects that we have done that started out as a Sketchup drawing and has been completed. I hope everyone who uses skethup can contribute to this thread. I will start it off with a couple of built ins that I just finished up. Please forgive the lousy photgraphy, these are the better pictures of the ones I took.

    Steve

    thanks for posting Timraleigh! I am a big fan of the black toe kick look. I also like how the upper shelves tie into the walls with no noticeable supports. Nice work!

    Here is one that I finished up last month.The usual sorry for the quality of picture from my phone, was moving and the camera was all packed, which reminds me to call the client and ask if they could take a few photos for me.vasic built-in 2.pdfIMG_0980.jpg

    Nice thread.

    Some of these pairs would make a great single photo by combining them. Irfanview(free) makes it very easy to combine them.

    We are doing a very similar raised bar top using 2-1/2" concrete. We made some steel angle brackets and attached 8 of them to the framed wall to support the concrete. In another one application we actually used steel posts with welded supports and a steel plate attached to carry the weight of the stone top.
