Step 2: Getting Started: Planning and Measuring
so this is the stage at which you need to figure out how much wood you will need. because of my racing stripe, i needed wood 1.5 inches wide and .5 inches wide (so that a light-dark-light pattern on the top layer would still be 1.5 inches wide).
here is how i figured out how much to get:
each 20 inch fender needed:
2 layers 20"x1.5"x1/8"
1 layer formed of 2x 20"x.5"x1/8" and 1x 20"x.5"x1/8" of a different(in my case darker) wood
3 fenders per bike (split between both wheels)
10 linear feet of dark wood in .5"x1/8"
20 linear feet each of same light wood in .5" and 1.5" x 1/8" wood
I got a little extra of both woods in all widths, just in case i messed anything up.
