I have been using SketchUp[^] from the days when it was a high priced application (somewhere around 350 USD, 15+ years ago), through the years when Google provided it for free, and I am still using it. Today, you have two choices: Either buying a subscription (no one-time-fee option), or a web version. I detest web based software, so I stick to the last freely available one, "Sketchup Make 2017" - google that, and you will find lots of sites from which it can be downloaded.

It takes a little effort to learn to use it properly, but once you learn it, you can easily make some really impressing drawings. And there is a huge library of 3D components - lots of makers of furniture, machinery, tools or whathaveyou have made SketchUp models of their products as a way to market them. Plus zillions of components made by SketchUp users.

SketchUp is a sketching tool - not a CAD/CAM tool. It is for showing the carpenter (or whatever sort of craftsman) how you want it to be when completed, not to tell him how to build it. I am in the middle of a process to prepare 30-40 "slides" to show the entrepreneur how I want the remodeling of my house to be. For that use, SketchUp is great.
