Not everything is furniture or pretty.
Since I “retired” I’ve picked up a job sub-contracting to build shipping crates for the Navy.
This set holds 300 pound retaining pins for aircraft carrier arresting gear wire sheaves.
I used Google Sketchup for the design and material estimates.
The morning I got there they told me the design I had, for two pins per crate, should be one pin per crate.
So in about 30 minutes I whipped out the laptop and redesigned the crates.
Then in 6 hours I built 5 crates.
