soh-cah-toa calculator

So we all know the basic soh-cah-toa triangle calculator. I'm building a cabinet with lots of angles and would like an automated way to do this. Is there a online-site or app I can download that would let me enter the knowns and it would give me the unknowns?

Thanks.

Is there one that will go down the chain and solve ALL the other unknowns?
For example, entering leg-a and leg-b will allow solving for hypotenuse-c and angle-α.
Re-entering hypotenuse-c and angle-α will then allow solving for angle-b.

Thanks!

Cabinetmaking, Dan? Giving up on carbon-fiber car parts?

BTW: if you're bored, I could use some help with some shelves here.

Wife, two cats and dogs require a lot of custom funiture!!!
Although carbon-fibre is an interesting idea. I may lay down a layer or two on the inside!
