Does anyone know of any websites to design furniture for free?

A website that might allow you to blue-print your projects?


Also, how about room design? 

I have a job (possibly) in a couple of months, to build and finish a sports complex waiting room and office area.  I would LOVE to be able to input measurements to make a more accurate materials quote.  It would also allow me to achieve a better mental picture of the overall project. 


I usually do this with pencils and paper (and straight edge).  They look pretty good too.  I'd like to make a better presentation of conveying whats in my head to the customer.  More professional.


If you don't know of any FREE sites, that's ok.  Do you know of any good software I can purchase?  Preferably a program you've used several times.


Thank you Ladies and Gents for any assistance you can lend.

Check with your local building supply centers.

Check with their ''contractors desk'' people.

Many of them offer ''how-to'' guides and books.

Thanks Ken.  I've got some how to books on specific things.  I'm looking to convert to using a computer to see if it fits into, efficiency and the over all plan.

Have you looked at Sketchup ( It's free, has a lot of free components, and is used for everything from designing furniture to buildings.

James is right about sketchup; it's extremely robust and creates a professional, 3D design. Best of all, there are tons of tutorial videos online to assist with the learning curve (which can be steep if you have not used design software before).  There are literally hundreds of thousands of user created models to use in the drawings.  Someone's also modeled pocket holes so if you want to show your joinery in your plans, you can, and it's all free.

Thank you James & Stephen.  I will be checking this out this evening.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
