Utilizing textures in SketchUp – FineWoodworking

Including textures to your SketchUp fashions can assist to provide you a greater concept of how the completed undertaking may look. In a current on-line lesson my pupil requested for some hints about dealing with a few completely different texturing methods.

Within the first case he needed to indicate a number of parts as in the event that they had been made of 1 piece of wooden. The entrance apron with the inset drawer entrance on this desk is an effective instance of that type of factor. Within the store the apron clean could be ripped into three peices after which the drawer entrance cross minimize out. Then the apron items could be glued again collectively.

Within the second case the concept is to make a single element look as if it’s been glued up from a number of items of wooden. I did that with the highest on this desk. The video exhibits how I did each of those.

One factor that helps to make this work is correct lengthy wooden grain textures. I’ve proven how I make textures from photos of lengthy boards. Check out this weblog put up.

For this video I’m utilizing a barely modified model of Greg Areceneaux’s Louisiana Creole Desk from FWW 238.
