Looking for wood building material cut in standard American sizes. (yeah, I know…good luck…)
I’m constructing a Vocal Booth for studio applications. I’m not much of a carpenter, but I can get by well enough. I have a set of plans for building the booth, but everything’s measured to American sizes. (4x8 sheets of MDF/OSB…2x4’s…etc…all in inches/feet) I originally didn’t think this would be a problem, but once I got a good look at the plans, I realized that they’re VERY specific. Being how this thing MUST be soundproof, everything must line up perfectly. Since most everything here is measured using the metric system, it kind of screws up my plans. Even a few mm’s off would screw the whole thing up. I’ve talked to some lumber yards about cutting what they have to the specific sizes I need…but even they admit that it would still be ‘chabuduo’.
I’ve talked with one wood-working guy who claims he can get me American sizes of whatever I need, but can’t get me samples to see first. (pay then get). I’m not to keen on taking his word for it - for him, a few mm’s off is probably considered good enough.
I’m probably up the creek on this one, but thought I’d ask here before throwing in the towel.
