Hi Rod,
You could try e-cabinet systems or Google Sketchup for free.

I've used Sketchup before. Here are a few links to things I have done w/ them recently.
Link #1
Link #2

You can download the sketchup files from those posts. Its pretty simple to use and the video tutorials will really show you everything you need to know to do things like this.

I will be 'drawing' up a cabinet soon (my next project) and I'll post that too when its finished being drawn(probably Sunday).

Heres a quick little drawing I did. Took only about 30 minutes... I will have to re-do it to actually fit the dimensions of a bathroom sink/top that I already own. But that is taken off of some designs I've seen on the web. Pretty straightforward.
Sketchup File is attached




No complex joinery here... just 2 dadoes, 2 rabbets and a whole lot of pocket hole joinery

If people have suggestions, please let me know

Maybe the thread is not the latest, but still my answer may help someone.
I own a small cabinet shop, and when it got more and more difficult to deal with all the orders and customers and I decided to find a software to make my work easier.
I come across online soft for designing cabinets and calculating their cost, it's called Online 3D kitchen constructor. At first I used the cheapest package. I liked it but wanted more opportunities and more featuers, so I switched to the business version.
I've used the soft for a year and I am completely satisfied.It's not expensive, but for the business like mine it's quite enough.

Here's a link by the way, prodboard.eu

Welcome to the forum Lambre. Information like that is always helpful.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
