Default Sketchup for system designs?

I am wanting to design something similar to the photo below for my escape. I was wondering if Google sketchup would be the best option to try and design/build it on my computer before attempting to make any wood cuts?


If it is not ideal is there anything else you recommend?

i believe that you could use sketchup to do that type of design. it will take better than basic skills i believe.
i think with some practice and patience you could get it done.

Sketchup is what you want, It is free, and as said above easy to learn.
I am certified in 3 different 3D design programs and Multiple Adobe products and I use Sketchup for speaker enclosures bc it is quick and easy.

Off topic >:you the one that posted above, BOONE:<

Thanks for the help y'all i have never used sketchup before and wanted to make sure i was learning the right program .
Any tips of where to start to learn specifically for box and car designs? It looks like the tutorials start with how to design a house floor plan which isnt very useful in this instance.

do you have basic knowledge on how to design an enclosure to begin with? if so then, look up "how to use sketchup" on youtube and i bet there will be loads of stuff that will help you with the basics.

Super super basic knowledge of building an enclosure. My plan is to just Build a box and have a facade around it to fill in the area and have some empty space to hide batterys and wires.
