Cutting Lists

Cutting lists are prepared from the full-size drawings and rods and precisely enumerate all the individual pieces of wood required. They can be dead nett or finished dimension, allowing only for jointing, or including the standard allowances for cutting, etc. 1/2 in (12.5 mm) on each length and 3/16 in (5 mm) (3/32 in [2.5 mm] per wrot face) in the width (thicknesses are always actual). The finished-dimension list is probably less confusing, while each piece can be easily identified on the drawing. Where tenons, dovetails or housings, etc. occur it is easier to measure right across the carcass or framework, not just the shoulder length of the bridging-piece plus the length of the tenons, etc. A specimen cutting list for the cocktail cabinet illustrated in 436 and 437 is shown below. The dimensions are net throughout with allowances for jointing. Requisitions for brasswork and ironmongery can be made on the same list or on a separate schedule.
