Tips and Tricks Having spent the last three hours fiddling with Ruby developer tak2hata’s amazing new SketchUp plugin, I can proclaim one thing with absolute confidence: Everything is better with fur on it.

You can adjust the density of your fur.

As this desk is for college, the creator estimates he will move “23 more times before I’m done,” so the legs were bought from IKEA in order to be “easy and non-destructive.” The boards were first separated from the pallet by cutting pieces between the support members. In the end, after two coats of satin polyurethane and a pre-stain conditioner, the desk looks really beautiful.
