Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

I just do a search on the Internet. Some places charge for plans, others are free (my favorite word). Tried Sketch Up and Gave Up. Went back to the pencil, graph paper and ruler. Hard to learn new tricks for this old dog.

Clever move, Cable Guy! By your remark about leaving yourself open, you've effectively cut them off at the pass and "insulated" yourself against an "insulation" response. Now that's clever psychology!

They rumble around in my head until they finally demand to be built. To paraphrase a movie line: "Plans? We don' need no stinking plans!"

I get inspiration from the internet, magazines, nature and customer ideas.

I usually start with a quick sketch so I don't forget the idea but I do have to admit when several months have gone by sometimes I have no idea what the idea was when I did the sketch.
When going back through the sketches if I like an idea well enough then it will do a better drawing and possibly some notes. If I still like the idea after playing with the it a little more then I will draw it in Sketch-Up and add details.

If it is a CNC project it usually starts with the same quick sketch then layout begins in the design software that best suits the project.

I majored in Drafting Design Technology and minored in Mathematics in college so I do know how to use a t-square, set of triangles, compass and protractor but I do my drawings on the computer.
