When you build from a plan, you are building someone else s design,...- MrRon

I m sure MrRon meant somebody else s plan. For complex projects, I like to have my own plan complete, in Sketchup. I spent over 20 years working for a CAD company, so Sketchup is pretty intuitive for me.

I use AutocadĀ© for all my planning and projects and I work to thousands of an inch. It is second nature to me. Of course my main interest is metal working. I find that working to close tolerances with wood, the project comes together much more precisely as long as I maintain dimensional accuracy. With hard woods, it’s easy. With soft woods, not so easy. Besides working with precision, I ensure my tools are dialed in as precise as they can be. Working on my projects takes me much longer than others take. Being retired, I can afford to take my time.
