I’ll go with “it depends”.
If I’m building a one off custom piece, I’ll typically just start on it and sometimes even do the “figure it out as I go” method if I’ve already thought about it for awhile. Generally I don’t even write things down or draw them out for this.
Though, if I’m going to build several of the same or have precise needs in mind, I’ll do a Sketchup plan so I have all of the dimensions and know the necessary cuts beforehand. Now, I’m not necessarily using those plans as a step by step guide, but they provide a point of reference to ensure my output is precise and repeatable.
