Other things to keep in mind

If you buy 8” wide lumber, allow for the ripping and jointing of both boards.

Watch for cupping and twisting – if you rip the boards smaller and glue them to flatten them, you also lose width as well.

Watch the ends for checking and splits and plan what you will cut on what boards.

Rule is that if you buy exactly what you need, you will not have enough.
