I did them in MS Paint. Pencil and paper will work fine. You just need to know what size of metal you will use and have precise dimensions. To double check my measurements, I laid out masking tape on the floor and set my kettles on the outline to be sure it would fit. For height, I found a table, set my kettle on it, and made sure the height was right, then measured the table height.
Link in my signature has lots of pictures, including a copy of the drawing I used.
