Google Sketchup is fairly easy to learn, lots of tutorials online. 

http://www.sketchup.com/

 

Once you know the dimensions of your panels, load them up into cut list

Another vote for Sketchup, and particularly the 3D Warehouse that has many models to download and deconstruct.
The scaling capabilities are powerful and allow easy alteration.

Maybe the post is not the latest one, but still my answer maybe helpful to someone.
I own and I use online soft for designing cabinets and calculating their cost, it's called Online 3D kitchen constructor. At first I used the cheapest package. I liked it but wanted more opportunities and more featuers, so I switched to the business version.

I've used the soft for a year and I am completely satisfied.It's not expensive, but for the business like mine it's quite enough.

Here's a link, by the way: prodboard.eu/kitchen

What does this particular software cost? (Sorry for the hijack!) I build cabinets for a living and am starting to do it on the side for myself to bring in extra cash. I could use a good software like this.
