I designed an entertainment console with 2"x2"x31" legs. In the center of each leg, I will add an accent by plunging a 1/4" round router bit in for 27.5". I would like to draw it in Sketchup first to figure out the right balance of height compared to the surrounding drawers and cabinet doors.
I drew the 2"x2"x31" legs. I would like to draw a half cylinder that is 1/4" x 27.5" with rounded ends then subtract them from the center of the legs. I first tried drawing 1/8" x 27.5", round the corners and rotate follow-me around a circle. It drew strange things. I spent a lot of time trying to draw the 1/4" sphere to put on a cylinder but I hit the limit on size and had to draw it large and scale it down. I was unable to lock the sphere on the cylinder.
After I realized that I had been hitting a size limit with the sphere, I dropped back to drawing the half cylinder at double size. That got closer but still doesn’t work. I have pasted a screen shot.
What is the trick to drawing this half cylinder so that I can subtract it from the leg?
Is there a better process than subtracting it from the leg?
