I learned basic 3D design in SketchUp, and started designing a coffee table I'm going to start building this weekend!
Don't forget the progress pictures!
That top panel will be a bit of a challenge in precision cuts.
Here's the top, all cut, but unfinished:
By the magic of unintentional mathematics, the angles on the top ended up being exactly 22.5 degrees, which is easily marked out on my chop saw and so everything fit together quite nicely. I've got the rest of the wood cut too, but by that it was too dark for the pics to turn out.
I plan on writing up an article here in a couple weeks when it's finished about what programmers can learn from woodworking (with many more progress pics), so stay tuned for that!
