    Since you've identified that you are using sliding dovetails, as Jon points out, your half inch bit will be too large. A smaller bit is called for here. In addition, I would suggest that you hog out...

    Looks good to me. More than adequate to figure shop space usage and anyone should be able to identify it.

    I looked at your island model. It looks pretty good although I see a few things that could be improved.

    The house models look like they are quite detailed. Good work.

    You can see a few of mine here.

    You'd probably get more interest if you share images instead of the models themselves.

    I don't know of any other sources for SketchUp components of specific tools like you are wanting to find. I think if I were you, I would learn what you need to know to make suitable components for...

    Yes. SketchUp 2017 Make is still available here. Or you can use SketchUp Free which is the web-based version. Both have their benefits.

    You probably aren't interested but maybe this will help someone. This was announced a year ago and it actually took longer for them to implement it than they intended.

    For the cross pieces under the top, you can keep them back from the edges of the top by 3 or 4 inches with no problem.

    I did the plans for this table with benches awhile back. The seats are about 15 in. front to back. The planks have a shallow bevel toward the center line. I would do that or leave the seat flat.
