no previous part Part 1 of From a picture series no next part

This started out in the forum as a question to see if there was an easy way to go from a picture, to a design, to a plan. Turns out, unless you have someone else do the dirty work… There isn’t.

My brother and sister-in-law have asked me to build them a kithen booth that looks like this: Picture

So I spent a few hours on Sketchup and came up with this rough draft: Concept

It still needs to be refined some, but I can’t do that until I have a little input from them. Let me know what you think so far.

Looks like you are doing well. The picture shows the bottom front of the booth with a curved panel. The drawing does not show this. A curved panel (like the picture) or a slanted panel would allow better movement of your feet when you are sitting at the table. (IMHO)
