Make a full-size drawing of your project

Work backward from finished dimensions

Calculate the dimensions of the rough-cut pieces. Add 20mm. to all the lengths of the parts and 10mm to the widths to ensure enough material in the rough-cut pieces to correct problems that arise during the manufacturing process.
Print off a ‘cutting list sheet’ Begin the list by filling in the names of the parts, the finished dimensions for each, and the number of parts needed (four table legs, for example).

cutting list sample

When filling in the length, be careful to include the ends of any joinery—such as tenons—that are hidden in the finished piece. Overlooking joinery details is an easy mistake to make.

When you input the information on the table using the material costs from ‘sheet 2’. The cost of your project will be automatically added up allowing you to calculate the total cost of your project. Below is sample showing the difference between rough and finish calculations!
