    Been looking ahead to what other timber I am going to need and it got me thinking about the various thicknesses of individual main parts. They are either 9/16 or 5/8. I wonder why these different sizes are used and not settle for a standard as they are only marginally different ( a 1/16th). Must be a reason for it but I cannot work it out. Can anyone shed any light ?


    I was wondering that too. Probably would make any difference if we just went with 9/16″ everywhere would it?
