Things will change if you start making stuff for paying customers. You need to have drawings then for client approval.
If you are discussing a job with a client it’s useful to sketch up a basic outline of what will work while you are there – just to make sure you have interpreted the clients wishes correctly. That will get developed a bit using pencil and paper until it’s ready for a full size working drawing on the computer – just front and side elevations, if there’s curved pieces involved I can print off the curved section to use for template making. I don’t dimension every last little detail, things like tenons and grooves get worked out while doing the job.
