Hi?

I need to work out how many boards of MDF I need for my conservatory cabinet. I have downloaded CutList but can't seem to work it out.

MDF Sheet: 2440x1220x18mm or 3050x1220x18mm


Component = WxLxDxQty

Side 54 56 2 6
Back 80 58 2 3
Base 84 54 2 3
Door 42 60 2 6

I'm afraid I don't even know where to start with it? Do I manually enter each part then...? :oops:

Each of your components has a circa 60cm dimension, so you can get two of those along the 1220 dimension of the sheet.

Side 54 x 56 x 6, so 2 x 56 cm along the 1220 axis, so you need 3x540 along the 2440 axis = 1620, leaving 820 of the sheet for: Back 80 x 58 x 2.

Then 1 x back and 3 x base 84 x 54 is another 580 +540 of the next sheet gone = 1120 leaving 1320 of the sheet into which you can fit the 6 of 42x60s in three pairs.

2 sheets.

How you're going to get the 2cm dimension from 18mm MDF is another question!

Thats quick maths Jake! I managed to work Cutlist out and it makes you right! My Maths is terrible i'm afraid! :oops:

Oh and well spotted with the 2cm mdf, just realised they do 18mm which will be fine.

Thanks :)

rather than open another thread i'll ask the next question here.

All I have is a cricular saw for cutting up these boards. I have a straight edge Guide Clamp

What the best way of cutting these parts accurately?
