SketchUp Articles

SketchUp is an invaluable FREE design tool for woodworkers, construction workers and DIYers alike. It lets you plan things in 3D and can be used for everything from making a simple table through to full architectural work. Also great for things like garden design, room layouts and a whole host of other stuff. In this series of articles we’ll go through the basics of using SketchUp from absolute beginner level.

Pricing Up Work

One of the most common questions I’m asked about is how to price up work. It’s a subject that few tradespeople talk about and I think that needs to change. In these articles I’m going to be totally up-front and honest about how much I’ve charged customers for various bits of work. I’ll even share some of my biggest mistakes!

How does it work?

You can subscribe on a monthly or yearly basis. Your subscription gives you access to exclusive articles and e-publications via this website. You can sign up for as little as £2 and you can cancel your subscription at any time. So yes, for £2 you can get access to all the member-only content and you can then cancel your subscription if it’s not for you. You also get free access to the exclusive member-only forum – a place to learn from other members and discuss ideas without trolls, spam or adverts. This whole site is privacy focused – unlike most websites, we don’t track your every move.

Why isn’t this content on YouTube?

YouTube is a strange beast. Some videos work well and some don’t. Unfortunately the content on this site is just too niche for YouTube. This isn’t just a money thing – putting very niche videos on YouTube can actually damage the channel and cause it to be down-ranked. This is much more of an online e-magazine, whereas YouTube is solely a video platform.

Privacy Focused

Most websites use tracking technologies. These systems monitor your movements between different sites to bombard you with targeted advertising. It’s not great and the implications on personal privacy through sites such as Facebook are huge. None of that here – if you don’t believe me look at what Firefox thinks of this site:

Almost all of the videos on this site are hosted separately from YouTube to keep tracking from those lovely global conglomerates to an absolute minimum!
