The 2X2 was nominal, with no power tools I was not willing to use something I would have to mill down. the laths were right about 1.5" wide but as long as the stock you use is all the same you will be fine. The 2X2 gets hollowed out so it isn't to bad on size or weight. I wanted to get the neck and scroll out of the same piece so it just simplified things. I have done them with thinner fret boards and it didn't seem to make a noticeable difference. my others have been cigar box and whatever happens to be laying around so run wild with what you use.

are you doing one with more of a sack on the back or just the board to tie to? I would like to do another canvas that I could swap out for more of an overnight or day pack.
That would be awesome. This thing is pretty light to begin with but that could lower the weight and add a little more rigidity.

Sorry it's taken a bit to get back to you. Probably about 50 or 60 if you have to buy everything. The tuners can be expensive but can also be scavenged from broken instruments. Also if you go to a music shop that does repairs and tell them what you are doing they can help with those and the fret wire.

28.25 is what I used, seemed to make the measurements easier, but as long as you put in your distance from top nut to bottom nut you will be fine. The nice thing is if you are off you can put it into the calculator and get out the right distances.
Mine has been good for a few years. If you are worried you could to the two vertical pieces out of thicker stock.
