What’s Your Usual Approach To DIY Projects?

Some projects require detailed plans. You may need to have precise measurements, a materials list and templates to duplicate the fancy hutch project you saw in a woodworking magazine. Other projects allow for more flexibility and personalization, such as those in Build Your Own Tables. At times, you might simply want to start building without even a sketch — only working from the plan in your mind.

Are you good with math and measurements? Do you follow building plans step-by-step? Or are you the kind of person who just envisions a project and jumps right in?

We all have our preferred styles for doing and learning. Some can eyeball measurements and see the end result and just make it happen; others prefer precision and the guidance of instructions. How are you wired? Share your thoughts and stories by posting a comment below.
