    The opening in the standard is 4X4". I've made several boards 3 15/16" and the edge that goes under the name plate has to be beveled.
    The stepped(inside) measures 3 9/16" & again I cut them to 3 1/2". Total thickness is about 3/8" and the front portion 1/8" inside 1/4".

    The bad news is they're not all the same. Mine ('40s) takes boards that are 4.5" square on the outside and 4.25" on the inside. I have friends w/ other Deardorff 5x7s that my boards won't fit on

    FWIW mine is # 186.
    Sort like making guns in the early part of the 19th century.
