For the workshop

This is what I hope to be an animation eventually.

Very nice! Like the model and the texturing. Is this for a whole scene?

P.S. When uploading images inline as you did above, by default it puts it to thumbnail size. However you can change it to full size which I have done for you

Yes and thanks;

this is why I enrolled in your coarse because I have next to no experience in animation.

When I finish this I hope to make it a construction animation, as well as building it for real in my shed.

My main interest in using blender is for furniture design mainly antique furniture.

This is a chair I did last year, but mucked it up by joining every thing together to soon.

Very nice! I like it. You can always unjoin the parts by hitting Alt+P
