      Google Sketch-up has a free version that seems to work very well. I understand there's also a for-pay version that has added tools/features.

      Sketch-up will take some time to learn, however! Any of the 3D design software packages are difficult (at least for me) to learn, but can be tremendously useful.
      I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

        Google's Sketch-Up also has loads of online help in the form of forums, blogs, free downloadable drawings, etc. I've been working at learning it, off and on (but more off!), for the last year. It's a nice program!

              A new entry to furniture design software is Sketchlist 3D. It has 2D and 3D representations of your design. They can be rotated to check the design and various views of the project.

              It also produces parts lists, cut lists and much much more.

              I designed a four cabinet entertainment center on it.

              A trial version is available.

              Check it out at http://www.sketchlist.com

                Thanks Billmoy, that's awesome. I'll try out the software this weekend, if they send me the download link.
