CabinetSense Software Training
This powerful yet easy to use and very affordable software is an extension for SketchUp and is the perfect solution for everyone from the DIY hobbyist who wants to build their own cabinets to the seasoned professional. Click on the picture to the left to view a demonstration video.
I'm a retired high school teacher and life-long amateur woodworker who for some crazy reason agreed to make kitchen and bathroom cabinets for a friend's new 6000 square foot house. I would have been lost had it not been for CabinetSense and Michael Samarza. Having never used Sketchup or CabinetSense before, and having only made one set of cabinets before, I quickly realized I was out of my element and asked the software creator if he could recommend a person to salvage the mess I was making. Michael turned out to be the perfect trainer and coach, and his expertise with the software and his lifetime of experience with cabinet making were evident within minutes. I called him my "cabinet angel;" he was always ready to patiently answer any question or help fix the mistakes I made in CabinetSense. He gave suggestions to improve my design and provided many valuable tips to make the cabinet making process easier and more efficient. He helped me in choosing materials including hinges and drawer slides, and even recommended jigs to make installation easier. And he did all this over the phone, email, and text from 1200 miles away - we've never met! He turned a floundering newbie into a fledgling cabinet maker, and I'm grateful to know him. –Jeff Brandenburg, Mount Vernon, WA
