42" is interesting. I wonder if that is the offical IH size. Cutting 42" from standard lengths of lumber is not an efficient yield. Lowes TopChoice (TM) treated lumber is about 3/8 longer than nominal length thus permitting a yield of 3 pieces 48" or 4 pieces 36" from a 12' length. 36" looks terribly narrow and really limits the cargo area. Probably 48" will be the length for mine. Convince me otherwise?

42" is off the top of my head... Might be 48", I'll have to go measure.
At the time I built it I was totally devoid of any scrap wood to use as blocking, so I may have justified the cutoff lengths by using them to start a block pile.
