Download my Furniture Calculator (metric/LR32)
« on: January 26, 2021, 11:25 AM »

Hello Toolnerds,

I build a lot of rolling wheely carts for the workshop, the wife, and other uses, as well as cabinets etc.

In order to make my life easier I built an Excel Cart / Cabinet calculator.
(Disclaimer: Since I am in Germany, this is in metric.)

  • Allows to define height / width / depth of finished piece
  • include drawer slides and wheel sizes
  • inset back panels
  • Overhanging drawers / doors or flush
  • Top and Bottom between sides or on top / below sides (for work-surfaces and heavy duty carts)
  • calculate LR32 holes for slides, hinges etc.
  • lots of little side-calculators for calculating spacings, fronts, story sticks etc.
  • Creates cutlists

I would love to get your feedback, improvements etc.

Hope this helps some of you.

DISCLAIMER: Check your own math/measurements. No warranty for errors. (Worked for me so far though).

Ooooh. I'm about to start planning a wall -to-wall cabinet build, and I will try this.
I'm UK-based so I appreciate the metric!!

Although I appreciate the power of Excel, I really suck at using it. I built a cabinet door calculator a few years ago to calculate rail widths and panel sizes, it works, but it's clunky. Your piece is a work of art! Organized well and seems to function well too. Nice job and thanks for providing it.
