It says on the assembly page that the recommended material thickness is 1/4"-3/8".
Are there any issues going up to 1/2"? The wood I looked at yesterday that was 1/4" seemed pretty flimsy. And 3/8" isn’t a common size in the big box stores. Could I go 1/2" with wood or should I plane it down to 3/8"?
Also, I’m not set on wood. Aluminum wouldn’t cost that much nor would a hdpe cutting board.
I’m just curious as to the reasoning behind the selection.
And would providing an epoxy coating or finish help in any way when using wood as the material?
