Howdy do folks, I was injured on the job awhile back and have been twiddling my thumbs while I recover. The upshot is that I was injured doing timber framing, and it was/is my job.
Since I'm lothe to leave my mind idle for long I've been doing a bit of design based on some of the past projects that I worked on during my short time working with the company. So I've an ounce of experience, a pound of ambition, and about 7 months and counting of nothing physically challenging to do.
Most of my designing is done first with pencil and paper, then I move on to the computer and do a full deal in Google Sketchup, the linked file is one of those done in sketchup.
Right now I'm looking for feedback and other ideas on what I can do differently to change or improve the design.
