I’m trying to build a Sketchup model of the Roubo workbench from a woodworking book I own. I have built the legs as 4 separate components with the hole for the stretchers (lower braces) trimmed from them using the “trim” tool. At this point in the model, I’m trying to trim the hole for the legs to go into the top, but when I select any of them I am given the “object not a solid” issue. While I can work around this by making a new group with the correct dimension to subtract my tenon (tongue) from the top to create the mortise (hole), I’m trying to understand what I’m missing in creating components that work as solids, or how to fix my “non-solid” components.
Thank you in advance for any help you guys can offer!
