Designing a cabinet in Sketchup can be very beneficial to you. You can get accurate dimensions. Design one cabinet and duplicate it for other cabinets just like it.

Draw in the drawers and you have instant dimensions for a cutlist.

Designing cabinets doesn’t take a lot of Sketchup experience.

Besides drawing the solid pieces (and making components for each one), the push/pull tool, Orbit/Pan tool, and the Move/Copy tool are the ones I use most.

Rob Cameron’s “Sketchup For Woodworkers” is an excellent way to start.

Good luck.

Here is an example of a cabinet I am working on for a dressing table.
