So does anyone have a cutlist for them?....

Just kidding.

I went ahead and drew one out today.  It's probably not the most efficient cut list, but it's what I'll be using.  The list is for four cabinets.  I don't see the point in building any less.

I've labeled the pieces with letters that correspond with a picture I've included.

it might seem silly but i usually draw out a 8' by 4' grid on a bit of paper then cut out all the pieces of wood on paper to scale
then just play around
saves rubbing out all the time

Or try

had a play with it two days ago. Seems to work. Free download.
Should probably have done this before building my cabs. Might have saved some ply.

Wow.

Well, you can either use my drawings, or use the software which should give you considerably better results.

With all the "cutlist plz" threads, why hasn't anyone said anything about that software...

Someone mentioned downloading software for cutlist on another thread, so i went for a hunt.
Was easy to find, seems to work. However have not fully tested it so cant verify it does exactly what it says on the tin, however, fair amount of useful info on site before downloading.
Wafflesound, see if it come up with same solution as your cutlist ?

I just used it and it's awesome.  It will calculate the best possible solution to eliminate waste as well as other things.

I only tried it with one 186.  Gonna try four and see how close I came.

"there are over 1,000,000,000 possible solutions, will now check the first million"

I'm going to be here awhile.

It finished.

Turns out my cut list is better.  I didn't take into account braces in either the software or my cutlist.   In my plans cutlist, you would need 7 sheets, and end up with a whole half sheet 4x4' to make braces.  With the software,  it also had leftover scraps, but in smaller more spread out pieces.  I'm still going to go off the software though.  Some of the cuts in my cutlist would just be impossible.
