online furniture design software that generates a cut list

Looking for: Developer
Imagine an easy to use, online furniture design tool that is intelligent about joinery and wood movement that will help furniture designers draw and modify designs easily. Imagine if it kept a record of best wood working practcies and guided the user concerning design pitfalls while designing. Imagine you could save your work and print a cut-list to hand off to your 'saw man'.

Sure there are programs similar out there but they are ugly, not intuitive, not user friendly, and are not dedicated to traditional wood working and only traditional wood working. The focus of this program would be to make periord style furniture in any easy manner that does not force the user to think. The user can forget about measurements and just visually design the piece. The main point is that it would be usable, clean, minimal, intuitive, and easy to use.


In my former career as a furniture maker and designer, I only wished such a tool could exist in an online platform that required no installation. Now that Web Development and Design is my profession, I would like to solve this old problem I had in my trade that has now become a hobby.
