20' long Ipe boards, great to have a good system. Two guys work together, have to have a guy at each end of sawhorses carrying two boards, one in each hand, walk to crib system accessing at each end and set down, very much quicker than each person carrying one at a time.

Yeah,but his post says lft....

Maybe he's dealing with T&G boards that are 12" wide and 1" thick, do they'd be the same.

Your move.

Well, if they're only twelve inches wide, that's not so bad.
