I write thickness first, then width, then length. Even in the case of a wood panel wider than it is long I can tell which way the grain is going that way. Sometimes I write thickness last. I ll write W and L often as well, at least once on a piece of paper to remind myself that s the format I m using.

While I agree with that convention as a default based on construction dimensioning, it makes sense when writing descriptive copy that we add D, W and L after each figure to remain clear. Just sayin’...
