Been working with AutoCad since 1983 on a daily basis so it’s like an extension of my brain by now.
As an artist (I design and carve jewelry), as an engineer I am obsessed with design and mechanics.
So, as you might guess, I work from plans. At least to start with.
I do have the ability to visualize a project in my head and I will create a design mentally before I go to cad, but there will be drawings to work from.

Now, when something needs a little tweaking, I may wing it, or I may work out the solution on the computer. In wood, everything needs some adjustment somewhere, sooner or later.
