* Option 1 – Use this option if you would like to buy all timber at the same size then rip down lengthwise to the required widths. This will be easiest with a table saw or band saw.
** Option 2 – Use this option if you would like to purchase all timber at the required width dimensions. Some cross-cuts will still be required for which a miter saw, circular saw or hand saw is required.
