agree with Alex – simple drawings can get your personal thoughts into it.
just copying from someone else’s plans is not really your “personal project”.
and these new design programs such as SketchUp are okay for architects and designers.
but, for the weekend handyman, it is not so good because you can sit in your recliner
and design stuff that is beyond your skill level to actually build and you become frustrated.
if you stay within your skill level and start with something that you know you can do
and something that you can actually use or sell, then you are off to a good start.
start small – work your way up to the more complex or larger projects.

learn how to read a tape measure – measure twice = cut once.
