I was looking at boards and was wondering what the difference between using 2 or 3 boards. What would be the best to start with?

It only takes about 2 2x6x12's to make a whole set. Make them all.

yes it will... a 1, 2, 3, 4...for the 5 we tape or lash the 4 & the 1 together


make the whole set, one 2 board or one 3 board by itself will become very useless for you rather quickly

Thanks a lot guys I will. Just wondering how will I benefit from the different set of boards?

the different range of motion provided by each board will affect different areas of the press and certain muscles differently at different heights. Trust me you want to try and use varying board heights every couple of weeks, should board training be something you are looking at.

Thanks a lot I will be looking into making my boards this weekend. Will the type of wood matter and suggestions?

a standard 2 x 6 x 12 from any Lowes or Home Depot or 84 Lumber will work

what length should you cut the boards?

Just make one long board and four shorter pieces, then attach as many as you need at one time with Velcro. Need a three board? Take the long one, Velcro two boards to it.

One board, one package of velcro, less to carry around.

what length should you cut the boards?

You can either do Freeride's suggestion or cut them at 24" lenghts and one at 30" for each of the 2, 3, 4 boards. Notch this one for the handle. So the handle will be 6" in length. See the link to see what I'm talking about.
