+1 for Sketchup. Easy to use, and you can very quickly tell it to print with a scale of 1:1. It’ll take a while to tape all the sheets together, but it’s darn accurate. When I had several removeable shelves to make for my desk, I printed the design out 1:1 on paper, taped them up, and then cut out a template from it on the carboard from a case of beer. it worked a treat.

One other option I’ve considered but never tried is using a digital projector, and tracing the layout. I’m not sure the lines would be fine enough though. Just my .02.
