Learn the basic tools and techniques required to draft by hand. You don't need fancy software to efficiently communicate your designs. Long before the advent of AutoCAD or SketchUp, craftsmen, designers and draftsmen were capturing their ideas on the drawing board with leads and paper. We start with a terminology and supply overview, then we walk through several samples and discuss appropriate practice exercises. You'll soon be creating accurate and interesting drawings. With a solid set of plans in hand, your woodworking in the shop will benefit from all the design details you worked out on the drawing board, where changes are easier to make. Your wood rack and your wallet will also benefit from the decreased waste.
