Building Childrens Furntiture – Lumber or corner sofa bed

One of the unhappiest experiences the home furniture maker can run into

is buying a piece of wood and then finding it’s just a little too short.

Because of shrinkage and varying standards of mill planning, there is a

difference between the actual “net” size of dressed lumber that you get

from the lumberyard and the nominal size that you order.

You can also think about corner sofa it will be great for your room or kids room.

However, plywood is sold in the exact dimensions as offered.

Board lumber nominally 1 inch thick will actually measure from 3/4 to 7/8 inch

(usually 13/16 inch). And its actual width will be 3/8 inch less than its nominal

width, in pieces between 2 and 6 inches wide; in wider pieces the difference

will jump to 1/2 inch. You can also look for corner sofa bed for your kids room.

Similarly, dimensional lumber of 2-inch nominal thickness actually measures

15/8 inches. So be specific about the size you want, and check the extent

that the dressed lumber varies from the rough-cut size.
