I called our local lumber yard here in Atlanta and they said that they do not have pine that comes close to an actual dimension of 3×4, as indicated in the instructions for the Moravian workbench.

They can get me a 4×4, which has an actual dimension of 3-1/4 inch square. Will that be OK for the legs?

Alternatively, they said I can laminate two 2×4 boards, but that does not quite get me there either.  The DVD for the bench shows three boards laminated together to get the desired dimensions.  What size boards are they? The DVD and online resources do not appear to provide this information.

Suggestions would be very much appreciated!
