Cutting lists and baseboards

I have found that Sketchup is an idea tool for not only reacting a virtual model of planed baseboards and layouts but also a great tool for creating the cutting lists for these projects.

So as a template to my ideas for a T-Trac modular layout gives me the dimensions of an 8ft x 4ft sheet of baltic 6mm ply and then I can work out all the cutting lines before I even turn on the saw. As usual more real progress to follow.

The completed boards and then the cutting list

      As ever, I am yo-yoing around plans, but.. I have an idea that will kill two birds with one stone. 🙂
