    I'm getting ready to post the first project in the Project section. I thought I'd show how to build the Mule Chest that's shown on the Home Page -- the little one-drawer keeping box sitting on my workbench in a state of not-quite-complete. I will be posting the explodes in Google Sketchup for several reasons, to wit (1) the Sketchup Viewer is free from Google, (2) it's remarkably easy to use, and (3) it provides more viewing alternatives than any other virtual reality viewer on the market. I've posted several snapshots below to give you an idea of what' possible. For those of you that would rather not mess with it, we will also be providing plain old two-dimensional explodes and illustrations. But if you would like to explore the the possibilities, I've posted the Mule Chest Explode on the Welcome (Guide) Page, along with links for downloading free copies of Google Sketchup and Sketchup Viewer. See http://www.workshopcompanion.com/General/Welcome!/Welcome.htm#3D .

    With all good wishes,
    Nick

    This will be interesting and someday might be useful; however, my skills with Sketchup have developed very slowly.

    <p> and having it match the earth’s rotational speed (7,000 miles per hour) the satellite stays over the exact same spot above the earth <a href=http://www.yeardress.org/>cheap wedding dresses</a> . . This is referred to as becoming in geosynchronous orbit. These orbits are occasionally also referred to as Clarke orbits in honor of Arthur C <a href=http://www.yeardress.org/>prom dresses 2012</a> . . <a href=http://www.yeardress.org/>halter dress</a> Clarke who initial came up using the concept in an write up he wrote back in 1945 entitled “Extraterrestrial Relays 8221;published in Wireless Globe Magazine. The orbiting satellite then retransmits the radio broadcast signal back down to earth towards the receiving satellite dish (mini dish) situated on your house or company. <a href=http://www.yeardress.org/>princess wedding dresses</a> The signal then travels via coaxial cables from the dish into the receiver that 8217; <a href=http://www.yeardress.org/Cocktail-Dresses.html>cheap cocktail dresses</a> . s connected to your Television, <a href=http://www.yeardress.org/>wedding dresses</a> . where the signal is then descrambled into viewable programming for your loved ones to appreciate.
