    easy way, goto object mode (tab) , select with "A", deselect with "AA/ Alt A". Then select top face with "numpad 3" or face select mode then -> insert (i) > extrude(e) > insert > extrude ( if u want to add details, bevel (ctrl b)). Just started to learn blender 1 week ago bymyself. Srry if I am wrong.

    I modeled a simple PC and desk to kill boredom.
    If you have discord, I can show you what it looks like.

    Thank you for another excellent tutorial! The face-loop shortcut alone will save me hours.

    I learned 3 things with this video that I missed cause I jumped right into retopology and animation. Thanks for the practice and excercises.

    Teaching repetition by having us practice our skills is great! The fact that you’re having us build new items keeps it from being boring. You asking us to build the item before you show us how you did it let’s our brain access all you’ve taught us previously, and then watching how you did it afterward often comes with surprise reminders that help show me other ways to get the same result. (Like, I had completely forgotten ‘C’ to circle select and 'B' to bevel.) And, though I learned everything in Blender 2.8 (and this is obviously an earlier version you’re using) I’m still able to follow you through all this, because of how great of a job you did in your other tutorials, teaching me in a practical way I’m able to genuinely remember. Extremely awesome, yet again.

    I've never had such a great teacher – not in high school, not in college. You should go do this in a classroom, Grant. You're very good at it.

    I used inset tool but i'll try E using 2.8 and changed right button to left. But E is easier!

    Some Blender 2.8 hotkeys (for those following this video but cannot use the outdated hotkeys):
    Ctrl + E -> Extrude (such as when you have a face selected)
    Alt + C -> Loop Cut
    Double Click -> Loop selection (greatest shortcut/hotkey ever)
    W, E, R -> Move, Rotate, Scale (respectively)
    1 -> edit mode for vertices
    2 -> edit mode for edges
    3 -> edit mode for faces
    4 -> object mode

    Thnx for the help and keep making good vids!

    Thanks for these Grant. Do the shortcut keys apply to Blender 2.8 ?

    4:34 noob question. I'm not seeing object properties (vertices, radius, depth) anywhere on Blender 2.8. Where is it?

    These are great free tutorials! They are even free unlike CG Cookie's tutorials.

    For the column, the bevel in 2.8 does as you show in the video (uneven inset). To get it right you need to apply scale to the object, because that initial scaling on the first cube leaves everything with a scale modifier. Once applied, inset will scale evenly.

    Hope this gets a 2,8 version at some point, although a lot of this isn't really that different.
