When you are fluent with SU, there is no reason to do it in your head.
I’ve been building cabinets, bookcases, built in’s, kitchens, etc., etc. for over 40 years.
I designed and built hundreds of units in my head and on paper. Now that I know sketch up,
no reason in the world I would ever waste my time with paper and pencil.
There are so many advantages to drawing the project one time and being able to do so much with it.
From seeing it to scale, to adding woodgrains and/or color to see how it would look in different stains.
Way too many advantages to list.
Once it’s drawn the measurements for everything are right there and you know if you build it to the measurements it all fits together. (short example below)

-- I only know what I know, nothing less, nothing more -- That doesn't count what I used to know..
