This first picture shows the back side of one of my jigs on the saw. Jeff Branch Woodworking. Many woodworkers attempt to understand the powerful 3D modeling software called SketchUp. And many woodworkers get extremely frustrated with SketchUp because it’s capabilities are so vast, it is hard to learn on your own. Manmadediy.
