Door and Drawer Calculator
This post might belong somewhere else. Feel free to move it.
When I'm building raised/panel doors, drawer fronts and drawer boxes, I often find myself agonizing over the math involved. I understand the math well enough, but it's just so easy to add what I need to subtract, or forget to double a dimension as needed. I'd calculate 3 times, measure twice and cut once; and still make a stupid mistake late in the day. Finally I built a spreadsheet where I can input all the particulars for my project and it will calculate the dimensions for me. It just cuts down on the errors. Sharing here in case someone else might find it useful.
“We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.” - Mark Twain
