Re: Ideal board?

I've gone for 6mm MDF but my boards aren't very big.

They're braced with 2 x 1 runners and drop straight onto the tops of the legs which are made of stud. I can lift them off when I need to start adding point motors, wiring it all up etc.

The whole shooting match is very rigid as there are stringers/side pieces with slats running along them to make shelves for books etc.

I don't currently have a workbench so needed a way of sizing and cutting the timbers I could do on a portable workmate thing with a basic hand saw.

Where the legs aren't quite the right height, I've just dropped a glazing shim in.
