Some time ago we went to the International Woodworking Fair in search of an inexpensive, yet flexible and powerful cabinet software. I was about to give up when I met Joe and Greg. Their personable style and the CabWriter software they created seemed like a good fit but I still had some reservations. Will I still be able to create custom, one-of-a-kind cabinet designs? How will it work with pre-finished plywoods and will I be able to master all those perameters? Joe and Greg were extremely helpful in answering my concerns and helping me get started. After a short time of “playing” with the software, I was ready to put my first job into production and all of our cabinetry projects have been drawn with Cabwriter since then.

CabWriter has honestly revolutionized the way we build cabinetry. Not only can I produce custom 3D drawings for the customer and layout drawings for the shop, I can quickly and easily produce DXF files to be cut on a CNC table. My customers love the 3D drawings and my cabinet makers love how easy it is to assemble cabinets.

If you’re looking for a cost-effective but powerful and user friendly software, I’ve experienced first hand how well CabWriter fits that bill. And if you’re worried about the learning curve, the team at CabWriter has some of the best video tutorials out there. I’m not especially tech savvy and had only a basic knowledge of SketchUp when I got started but the resources helped me power through the learning stage quickly. I’m truly excited about CabWriter and what it has done for my business and I encourage any cabinet maker, whether you’re a hobbyist or professional to try it and see for yourself!

I was looking for an affordable way to do cabinet design that would also streamline the process of producing shop drawings and cut lists. I signed up to beta test Cabwriter and after about 4 hours of online tutorials I was designing my first kitchen. I was thrilled! It is akin to the difference between using a typewriter and a word processor. Changes and corrections are seemingly effortless.

Designing is a creative process that goes through multiple changes. Cabwriter provides tremendous flexibility to alter your designs. All the drawings and reports associated with those changes are rapidly updated. It saves hours of work and reduces human error that often occurs recalculating numbers or re-entering data.

It can take time to become familiar with new technology and there are usually questions along the way. The team at Cabwriter have created a variety of online tutorials and tools that guide you through the features of their product. They have always responded to questions and value constructive feedback.

What is your time worth? How can you more efficiently use your materials? The cost of Cabwriter was recovered during the construction of my first kitchen model. With Cabwriter you can create professional drawing, you will know exactly what materials you need, what your cabinets are going to look like, and how they are going to be constructed before you make a single cut. I wouldn’t start a project without it.

Cabwriter has been a terrific addition to my toolbox! Not only is it cost effective by giving me much more for my money, It has proven to be extremely efficient not only with drawing, but being able to use with Cutlist as well as the potential to export files for cnc operation. Best of all in my opinion is the phenomenal support from the Cabwriter team. You just can’t go wrong with that kind of deal!

Below are a number of real life projects that were designed using CabWriter, CutlistPlus fx, and in a couple of cases, Vectric’s Cut2D plus for CNC. All of the projects were built by students or faculty at the New England School of Architectural Woodworking (NESAW) in Easthampton, MA.  NESAW has been involved in the design and testing of CabWriter from the very beginning…
