If you scroll through the videos that they show, you will find some that are
related to woodworking.
Have fun honing your SketchUp skills.
Not compared to most programs - you can be up and running in an hour.
The interface is deceptively simple and there's a lot of power under
the hood, so it can take a while to discover all of it - that's why
these videos are so useful. Far better than reading a manual.
I noticed that as well, but attributed it to the particular PC that I was
using at the time. I had to constantly hit the play button to get some of
them to play. Strange, because usually these types of videos from other
sites are slow until they finish streaming or downloading (not sure of the
exact technical term) and, once that's done, are easily played.
Somehow, I suspect that it might play into a self-serving interest on their
part. If you get frustrated enough, you might decide to buy the disks.
Although, in fairness to them, I did see that they pointed out a problem
with viewing at least one of the videos.
Since viewing them online is free, I'll take a look at them from time to
time to see if things improve.

I watched parts and downloaded a bunch of them late last night and
there was no speed problem. I'm on cable and I was downloading at ~
1.5 to 2 megs/sec. I wonder how much of the bottleneck was due to the
OP in this group.
SketchUp is easy to learn and is very powerful. I use it to draw all
my working drawings for custom furniture. See write-up on my web site.
Also, I have modeled a number of pieces using SketchUp and TurboCAD. I
imported my old TurboCAD drawings to SketchUp and put both original
SketchUp drawings and imported TurboCAD drawings on my site where you
can download SketchUp native files free. Play with one or two to get a
feel for SketchUp. I recommend you try "Office Table" or "Six Pane Oak
Cupboard" since they are the most complete and done entirely in
