Interesting replies. I guess I should point out I have been building stuff since I was a child, beginning with model airplanes and moving on to wood and metal working at about seventeen (1957). I worked weekends and summers at a local hobby shop and used the money to begin building my shop. The first big purchase was a 6” Atlas metal lathe sold by Sears. I say this as building things in my mind is as natural to me as breathing as I have been building for 70 years. Occasionally I will make a rough pencil sketch with dimensions, but that is as far as I go.
Anyway, I suggest some of you try the “build it in your mind”. You will find it eliminates many mistakes and re-dos and makes the project go easier.
