Google SketchUp Joints

For a long time now, I have wanted to add images to my catalogue of woodworking joints on the site. Though I do have some basic drafting and artistic skills, I thought it would be clearer and more consistent if I used a drawing tool.

Google's SketchUp is a great tool for woodworkers that I have dabbled with in the past, but this is my first real attempt to produce something for viewing by anyone other than myself.

Mortise and tenon joints, along with end miter joints, are the first to receive the treatment. I will be adding more as time goes on.

What do you think of the images? Are they clear enough? Or do you prefer solid surfaces? Feedback is always appreciated!
