    So this is going to be my first wood project, so yes I’m new to the whole thing. I have someone experienced to help me with it all, but I need some help figuring out the plans.

    First post on these boards! I do spend a little time over on DIYChatroom. This is my first attempt at using SketchUp, and this will be my first attempt at making furniture. I've used dimensionally correct lumber in this, and most of it is either 3/4 or 1/2 plywood. The trim pieces will be...
