the cost is not important for me i saw the skatchup software on youtube.com , I don't have any experience on it but it sound so limit on tools and design?
One of the biggest benefits of Sketchup is actually the availability of downloadable models - for example hinges - you can actually import an accurate model of a real hinge that you may use in your project and integrate it into your design.

I remember working with full blown CAD programs in highschool and although they were certainly better for architectural design, I've found Sketchup to be the ideal CAD program for home projects and other simpler designs. Creating details like mortises is super simple with sketchup.
