I generally sketch out what I am going to do ahead of time, in varying levels of detail depending upon the complexity of the project. For simple projects I am inclined to just dive in and start experimenting. For larger projects I will sketch out a scale drawing, develop a cut list and for projects with a lot of sheet goods a cut diagram as well.

I rarely work from other people’s plans. I am not opposed to it, but I just find that I don’t enjoy it as much.

As far as method, I am not very regimented. I just follow a flow that makes sense to me at the time for a given project. Overall I guess this approach works well enough, but I’m sure I could do better with more discipline and consistency. And to your final question, I would NOT say that I am good at avoiding mistakes. I have become decent at fixing them, but avoiding them is unfortunately not my thing.
