    Thanks Rennie. I stashed that in my "charts" folder.

    The sizes I use I consider more correct, as I follow architectural standards. FWIW.

    For mattresses:

    Double/full.....54" x 75"
    Queen..........60" x 80"
    King.............76" x 80"
    Cal King........72" x 84"

    Stool/seat height:

    For a desk.....18"
    For a 36" countertop....24"
    For a 42" bar top....30"

    Very handy. Thanks Rennie. An additional source of standard dimensions and since I own a copy, the first place I always look when I start to design a piece of furniture, or build anything remotely architectural for that matter, is Architectural Graphic Standards. AGS is a great source of info and also includes construction details that can get you stated in the right direction. Take a look next time you are in Barnes and Noble or your local library.
