Using Shiplap Cladding

Shiplap Cladding

The table below helps to determine the dimensions of a project versus the number of whole boards needed using 120mm shiplap cladding. This way the dimensions of the project are determined by the cladding used rather than just choosing arbitrary dimensions.

When making a rabbit hutch rather than just blundering ahead and choosing a height of 600mm for the hutch look at the table below and choose the nearest height which is 556mm then I know that 5 x 120mm boards will give me that dimension without needing to cut one of the boards to size.
