A grinding bench in Sketchup

Home/Tools and Jigs/A grinding bench in Sketchup

I keep fiddling about with designing things in Sketchup. Its a steep learning curve to start with particularly as I tend to conceive and design in my head. The attached images are from a grinding that I made for my shed. I have limited space so I try where possible to make things mobile. The idea for this was to keep my bench grinder, wet sharpener and slow speed grinder all in the one place. I set about designing this all in Sketchup. The final design did of course alter as I built it. The main difference is the middle shelf isn’t full width. I made a space to accommodate a thickness planer that I own.

The Sketchup model  did help me visualise the project and helped with material sizes. I’m currently working on a base for my new table saw which I hoping will be more detailed.
