Bob Lang, the executive editor and project illustrator of Popular Woodworking magazine will teach the enrolling students there with his best effort. Lang has been a professional cabinetmaker since the early 1970s, he is the author of the digital books Woodworker's Guide to SketchUp (2010) and Building Blocks of SketchUp (2013), as well as Drafting and Design for Woodworkers (Popular Woodworking Books, 2008), and several books of shop drawings. The tusion fee is $730.

Having a handy experience with SketchUp and written about it extensively, Lang has identified common areas in which new users stumble and self-taught users work harder than necessary. He will offers simple exercises that focus on those areas to build foundation skills quickly. He expects that the participants learn how to model designs, and extract information accurately, to make the actual building process more predictable and rewarding.

Lang, in his blog stated that there are still few spot open. So if anyone wants to have their problem solve in design and planning can go to register their details in institute’s website.

“As always, these classes are a lot of fun, and the best way to learn is by watching someone who knows what they’re doing, and then practicing. That’s what we do and the class is limited in size so there will be plenty of time for you to get your questions answered. We start with the basics and by the end of the week you’ll be able to model what you want and you’ll be able to extract all the information you need for a successful build from your model,” Land said in his blog.

He also added that the first two days will follow the format of ‘Building blocks of SketchUp’ and the students can find a detailed list of what will be covered as soon as they get into the class. Then students will finish the week working on ‘Woodworking with SketchUp’.

However, the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship is a premier institute in this field. The mission of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship is to provide the best possible education for people who want to design and build functional, beautiful, and expressive work out of wood to the highest standard of craftsmanship.
