The measurements throughout this project are given in both Millimeter measurements. (Abbreviation for millimeter which is a metric unit of length equal to one thousandth of a meter. 25.4 mm equals one inch.) and Standard/Imperial inches.
The metric measurements (mm) are given first followed by the Standard. Feet and inch measurements. measurements (inch) in brackets ().
There are only two stock sizes required for this project, both being common stock sizes.
90mm x 45mm (1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″) and 90mm x 19mm (3/4″ x 3 1/2″).
90mm x 45mm means wood that is 90 millimeters wide by 45 millimeters thick.
That is called the The finished (dressed) size as opposed to the nominal size of a piece of wood.. The The rough-sawn size of a piece of lumber. Before the lumber is surfaced, planed or dressed. The nominal size is usually greater than the actual dimension. e.g. 100x50 (2 x 4) actually equals 90x45 (1 1/2" x 3 1/2"). of the wood relates to its size prior to being Surfaced; planed; smooth; even surface; gauged. (planed, See Dressed., smoothed). For example, wood that is 100mm x 50mm (nominal size), becomes 90mm x 45mm (actual size) once it has been dressed (planed, surfaced, smoothed).

1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ means wood that is 1 1/2 (one and a half) inches thick by 3 1/2 (three and a half) inches wide.
That is called the actual size. The nominal size of the wood relates to its size prior to being dressed (planed, surfaced, smoothed). For example, wood that is 2″ x 4″ (nominal size), becomes 1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ (actual size) once it has been dressed (planed, surfaced, smoothed).
