OK, by now you have seen, and hopefully read, the Six Rules for 3D Modeling in SketchUp at least three times. If not, you might want to review them before proceeding with this tutorial.
A completed SketchUp model of the Bedside Table can be downloaded from my website srww.com. Select the Free Plans menu button, scroll down to Tables and locate Bedside Table from the list. It is available both in native SketchUp file format (.skp) and as a PDF file (.pdf). Before you view the video take time to familiarize yourself with its design and dimensions. For this fourth part we are especially interested in the Lower Drawer Rail, Drawer Sides, Drawer Back, Drawer Front and Drawer Bottom. You may want to print out the Stiles, Sliders, Slider Arrangement, Drawer Sides, Drawer Front, Drawer Back and all Drawer Bottom scene(s) for reference.
Downloading the Video to Your Computer
Sometimes the performance of your internet connection, the load on it at a particular time of day, and the length of these video tutorials can all conspire to provide you a frustrating and impossible viewing experience. If this happens it may be preferable to download the entire video unto your system and view it on your local video player. The video file is an mp4. It can be viewed with most video players including QuickTime and Media Player. If you have a default, or user specified, file association for .mp4 you may have to delete it or use a download manager to download this file. Otherwise the associated application will be invoked and file streaming will prevail over downloading. There are numerous free download managers on the internet. Be careful, and do some research to locate one that is not loaded with spyware or viruses.

into your download manager.
Viewing in Your Browser
You may find it easier to view the video in full screen mode. Start the video before selecting this mode. To enter full screen mode click the little screen icon at the bottom of the video player. When in full screen view hold your cursor near the bottom of the screen to access the video player’s controls. Exit full screen mode with the Esc key. This part is approximately 50 minutes long. Sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
