    Re: Assembly question.

    Fair enough and a reasonable question. The "Shrinkulator" may help you. The red cedar bottom board (22"w) sitting on the sink/stove top won't expand or contract very much in the fairly constant humidity in your home.

    Re: Assembly question.

    This is a good discussion and it's your choice but what's your reasoning for this change? What's wrong with a single board 22" l x 4" w having horizontal grain along its length? None of the boards will contract/expand along their length and the changes in width are almost nothing at 22" w.

    Did you plug the numbers into "The Shrinkulator"?
