I have posted pictures at a.p.b.w. of the progress of the "Arts & Crafts"
style bedroom furniture that I am working on at the moment. A combination
of mostly quarter sawn oak and cherry. A bigger explanation of the details
is on that group.
LOL, you noticed! IIRC there are between 2-3 hundred seperate pieces. How
do I keep track? I build all like sections at one time and only those
sections. Basically I cut out all the pieces for the 4 sides and assembled
then for the face frames and back. Then the Fixed shelves and assembled the
main unit. Then the drawers, then doors and so on. Doing it that way you
don't have too many different sizes to keep up with.
Because each part is made into a component in Sketchup and then given a
specific material name the program along with Cutlist 4.0 keeps every thing
segregated and correctly entered into CutList Plus 2009.
After drawing each piece and converting into a component I can snap all the
pieces together to assemble the project on Sketchup. this isures that every
thing fits. I then select the unit and Cutlist 4.0 sees each component and
imports the data into Cutlist Plus 2009.
Note Cutlist 4.0 and Cutlist Plus 2009 are seperate programs. Cutlist 4.0
is a Sketchup plug in.
Nice looking stuff there, Leon. Cherry and oak mixed....mmmmm never
Can't wait to see it finished.
I cant wait to se the cherry darken. LOL Right now it looks like oak with
out the coarse grain.
