Parts Layout Scene in Go

One scene I made in order to help determine how much material is needed is shown in the screenshot. I probably should have oriented the staves down instead of across since the grain direction runs that way. I will probably make that change. There is one inch between parts. I added texture once I thought about grain direction (should have considered that first).

Looks like a lot of material waste the way you have it laid out.

You could get the staves out of three 8’ pieces with a few extras just in case.

That’s the idea. I have to subtract out the 24 inches in my diagram to eliminate waste, but with the parts close together in your screenshot, it’s not necessary. This simplifies figuring out how much material is needed. I just have to consider thickness which is easy.

Here’s what I came up with after making changes.
