Theoretically both could be equally flat. I’m not so sure that would be true practically.

To me the difference is principally visual: The long way looks strong, the short way looks like the ends will fall off.

I hear your comments about the look and the rusticness of alder. I understand that the mission part is only about architecture, not about the whole aesthetic of the style.

I hope you post progress on a blog on your page. I would follow it!

Kindly,

Lee
