The best tool for any job

SketchUp is an easy-to-use 3D modeler that lets you think through and pre-build projects on the computer before you tackle them in real life.

3D Modeling for Woodworkers

Try out design variations in 3D

Experimenting in woodworking software or cabinet design software is a lot less expensive than experimenting in the shop. Use SketchUp to visualize as many designs as you like without wasting a single piece of wood. Make sure your idea is possible and get any mistakes out of the way in SketchUp before you head to the hardware store.

Woodworking Design Apps

Get good fast

If you want to be productive fast, you’ve come to the right place. SketchUp is the easiest way to learn how to draw in 3D. And once you learn the basics, SketchUp gets out of your way so you can draw whatever you want, however you want.

Cabinet Modeling

Measure twice, cut once

Think of 3D modeling your project as the ultimate form of measurement. With SketchUp, you can model accurately, take dimensions, and generate a cutlist in 3D before you build it. SketchUp is remarkably accurate, so you can model anything—from a wall of cabinets to a lap joint—with as much precision and detail as you like.
