new user focus on woodworking

ahonan1@gmail.com
Hi all,
I am a new user, and enjoy using Librecad.
I am a retired mechanical engineer and am getting into woodwork.
I like how Librecad stays in the opensource market and does not try to compete with Autodesk etc.
I tried Librecad a year ago but then wanted to try and find something for woodworking joints and construction.
I wanted something more sophisticated than Sketchup
I tried Blender but 3D modelling is too complicated and more into animation.

I realize that Librecad is very good for me and I especially enjoy the 2D drawing (reminiscing back to uni days when doing tech drawing).

If anyone can point me to any woodworking joint blocks (if they exist) I would appreciate it.


Andrew

I maintain a repository of dxf blocks on github (https://github.com/GSStnb/dxfBlocks).  I currently don't have woodworking joinery, but I can add them.  Rabbets and dados I've just been drawing as part of the component, and don't do much with dovetails.  What kind of joinery are you looking for?

Hi Gary,
Thanks for your email.
I like very much the Complete Illustrated Guide to Joinery by Gary Rogowski.

I will get back to you in detail which joints I like the most but attached a set of overall photos of Gary Rogowski joints.

In his book he shows how to construct each joint in detail.

I will get back to you shortly on my favoured, and detail joints
