This is a simple tool to help you determine what stock to buy and how to cut it in order to get the pieces you need — a cut list. Go through the sections to set everything up and click the generate button at the end to get your results. Some sections have more information that you can expand by clicking/pressing on the arrow.

Signing up for an account is both optional and free. Registered users get extra features such as the ability to save and load projects and stock sets.
To copy and paste from Excel, build your spreadsheet with the same columns as the table below, copy the contents, and click the "Paste from Excel" button at the top of the table.
There are different algorithms for calculating your cut list and they are optimized for different goals, e.g. minimize waste, minimize cost, or minimize the number of cuts. You can change this at any time or try different algorithms to see what gets the best results.
You can optionally enter a name and/or notes that will appear on the printed cut list. Head notes will appear at the top and foot notes will appear at the bottom. If you have an account and save the project, "name" is what appears in the list.
