If you don t like Sketchup because it s web based, then you might not like Fusion 360 either. Fusion requires an internet connection because all of your designs are stored in the Fusion Cloud. Even so, I still use it but not for woodworking.
You mentioned Solidworks for $40/yr. I recently “re-upped” my Solidworks license as a US military vet (which is also good for Canadian military vets), and it was only $25/yr.

I’m not really worried about the Internet connection, although it’s nice to have everything local. I just find the web interface to be ‘clunky’ – that’s being rather generous.

The $40 was the CDN price that I got off the website. We get dinged a lot up here. :(
