A while back I remember reading an article in a woodworking magazine that
detailed a calculation used for calculating, among other things, the various
heights for things like individual drawer heights in a chest of drawers.
The calculation ended up providing the exact height dimensions starting with
the larger drawers on the bottom and working its way to the top. The
purpose of such a calculation was to provide the necessary measurements such
that the finished piece would have a "balanced" appearance
Anyone remember seeing this or can point me a source with the calculation.
Got Excel? Here's the url to an explanation and it has a link to a
Excel spreadsheet you can use based on the concept (all one line so
the line wrap)
Great spreadsheet. Isn't Excel great for woodworking? I've made a
simple boardfeet calculator where you punch in all the individual
parts demensions and the total boardfeet for the entire project is
shown. I can factor in waste and cost per boardfeet to get a good
estimate of how much extra lumber I need and how much it will cost.
One question: You have a line that says "user supplied information in
red", but the only text colors I see are green, black and blue?
