    I do all my designs first on Sketchup. Be it my Bar, budgie cages, their nest boxes, gate design or tanks.

    This design I've done a few years ago on an older version of Sketchup. i worked out everything, the angles of the counter, the cabinet door width, the foot piece.

    And here is the bar completed.

    Wow you guys are talented! I've installed Sketchup now but will take a little while to get the hang of it. I've just figured out how to make a square a cube :)

    Anyone keen on drawing my sump in Sketchup?
