Welcome to SketchUp Training for Woodworkers*
My name is Dave Richards. I've been a SketchUp user for over ten years and for about 8 years I've been teaching others how to use it. In addition to teaching, I also use SketchUp and LayOut to draw projects for myself as well as for other clients ranging from professional woodworkers to a major woodworking magazine. I am a contributor to the Design. Click. Build. blog on FineWoodworking.com and author of a DVD, Fine Woodworking's SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers--The Basics which is aimed at woodworkers who are beginners with SketchUp as well as the eBook SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers: Advanced Techniques for those who are beyond the basics.
While I use SketchUp and LayOut primarily for woodworking projects, I can help you learn to use them for any sort of application you might have in mind. Training is customized to the student's needs. Most of the training is done online via GoToMeeting so location isn't an issue. Sessions can be short or as long as needed. Whether you just want to learn how to use one tool or plugin, improve your work flow or if you are starting from scratch, I can help you out. Drop me an e-mail and let me know how I can assist.
