Is this sort of a bookcase type structure? One facing deep?
Details are a little vague.

Ron, Thanks for the reply.
I am trying to build a bookcase style record holder that tapers from thin on top to wider on the bottom. I want to be able to have two sides and have it open to reveal as one ex: like a car door. Also I want the front (and back) of the furniture to hold records front out and a few across and and few down and several deep. I have about 500 records so I plan on having 4 across and 5 or 6 down with about 10 deep set up as layers. Any idea how to star? Thanks.
Joshua

I use a program called, Cutlist when I design cabinets. It's more for planning optimal use of sheet goods, but you might look at it.
The design you propose is somewhat unusual, so you might try doing it the old fashioned way, paper and pencil.

There's also BoardPlanner (http://www.vivbuilder.se, click on boardplanner). Simple to use and not too expensive.
