    Thanks for another great tutorial. Custom grids and guides are great tools. I’m still absorbing the nuances of them so it’s good to have these details reinforced.

    Hi Chris,

    I have been following along after having watched the whole tutorial through once, and I have a problem. In the second part, about 4mins in, you talk about bridging the two line faces to class off the front of the table leg…

    I have followed the tutorial exactly, but when I click bridge, nothing happens?

    I went and looked at that section. At that point if you look closely you can see that I’m bridging some edges to close a side off.
