How do you make a cutting list?

How many cabinets can I make out of a sheet of plywood?
Most cabinets are less than 36 inches high and 24 inches wide. If you rip a 4-by-8 foot sheet of plywood in half parallel with the grain, and then crosscut those pieces at 35 1/4-inches, you will have two pairs of cabinet jambs, or enough material to make a single island cabinet measuring 24 by 36 inches.
How do you calculate sheets of plywood?
Area can be found by multiplying the length and width of the space in feet. Find the square footage of each space and add together to find the total square footage needed. Divide by the total square footage by the square footage of a sheet of plywood to find the number of sheets required to cover the space.
