I’m pretty new to SU and am having a problem that prevents me from progressing on my model of a wood cabinet. Here’s where I’m hung up.
First, I draw a leg and copy it about 14" away from the original and try to create a connector piece between the two legs (call it an apron or a rail). To do this, I draw a rectangle on one of the legs and pull out to where it meets the 2nd leg. The problem is that instead of the connector piece being separate from the legs, SU attaches the connector to the leg as one solid piece. I want them to be separate so I can create mortise and tenon joints where the connector attaches to the legs.
How do I create the connector/rail as its own entity so I can manipulate it separately?
I’m having the same issue trying to build a frame and panel door. I build the stiles and can’t figure out how to keep the rails separate from the stiles.
Of course, making the mortises/tenons is another whole challenge for me.
