Types of Woodworkers

While developed for the custom cabinet maker, over the past decade we find other groups or categories of people use SketchList 3D. Our users typically fall into 5 distinct categories, and we design our product to serve the different types of woodworkers with powerful features and functionality.  Sketchlist delivers every time.

Interior Designers

With high demands on color, clarity, definition and impact, interior designers build beautiful spaces in Sketchlist. Its features allow them to easily build out a space, easily adding details such as contour, grain, hardware, backdrops and other objects. Usually once the design is approved, they send it to a wood shop for cutting and fabrication.

General Contractors & Home Builder

General contractors operate under the pressure of working with clients to set goals and taking the steps to deliver as promised. Goal setting is a vital part of the sales process where clear drawings and images are necessary for clear communication and agreement. Delivery requires drawings and production reports be sent to those in charge of production and installation. SketchList 3D helps move the project from client communication to delivery.

Custom Woodwork Shop Owner

Their job starts with designing kitchens, built ins, and entertainment centers – for prospects. Only the ideas presented through the highest quality images will make their proposals succeed. And after they win the job, they require accurate cut lists, drawings, and materials reports to get it through the shop quickly. SketchList 3D integrates the design and production to make this all possible.

Corporate Users

Companies frequently offer woodworking design and construction as a supporting service. Examples include office layouts, storage areas, case goods, and portable shipping containers. The designer is responsible for delivering drawings and specifications quickly and efficiently. With our SketchList 3D producing and updating designs takes hours instead of days.


Actually good design maybe more important to the person who builds a few projects a year than to a production environment. As a home woodworker, each project is special. Without the pressure of deadlines, DIY users enjoy exploring multiple approaches and ideas in their designs before going off to the lumber yard to buy materials. Problems are reduced, mistakes are caught and eliminated. The ability to create multiple options often results in the ‘best’ design. With the accompanying drawings and reports, you can move to the shop with confidence that your design will come out as you want.
