If I know what size a cabinet has to be, if any special sizes are required for certain drawers and compartments I can make a cutting list for all the parts needed, sizes and locations of all the routs. I cut everything and machine all the pieces before I start assembly. If you look at my crib and dresser plans in my blogs you can see what I do before I start building something. I had to do this so the inmates would know what to cut and machine. I would give them hand sketches if needed. After Cad came along, I would have inmates do shop drawings. On custom projects I would stiil do the cutting lists. After 35 years I got pretty good at doing it. I always had to follow specs.
