I apologize if this comes out as a repeat but I did not see my earlier post
show up on the list.
Do any of you know of a cut list program that runs on OS X. I searched
using Google without any luck. I had some hits for Linux but would rather
not have to migrate or try to compile. Curious if others know.
Design Intuition from http://www.gizmolab.com/software/ is a really
good as a CAD program designed especially for woodworkers. It beats the
socks of most of what I have been using, both on a Mac and a PC. It
does not do cut lists. I have queried the developer about this. Maybe
we will hear back.
Thanks for the info, RonMan. Have you tried qcad and, if so, how does it
compare to Design Intuition? I had not heard of the latter but will try to
download and check it out this weekend.
Have other things that must get done first : )

When comparing qcad to Design Intuition I came to the conlusion that DI
was designed for woodworkers (by a woodworker) and qcad is just a cad
program with all the baggage that goes with one. It is about average
for usability for a cad program, but most cad programs stink on the
usability side (Vectorworks is loads better that AutoCAD, but could be
even easier to use).
qcad is cheap, $<$50, DI is not as cheap >$100.
I did get a response from the developer of DI. He is working on (o the
cut list feature and asked if I wanted to be a beta tester. Of course
I said yes. I will keep you posted.
Linux stuff most likely can be twiddled to run on OS-X with relatively
little effort, but the Linux project you speak of is vaporware, so there's
nothing there for you to fool with one way or the other.
