I've done the google thing and skimed thru some books such as the Complete
Illustrated Guide to ......
looking for an answer about making panels or even tables. Is there an
optimum width of boards for making panels and is this proportional to the
thickness or size of the panel. How does this relate to table tops?
I'm almost done my workbench, now it's time build cabinets for storing the
toys/tools. As always your opinion is greatly appreciated.

That is a really good question. I read everything I can on woodworking
and I don't ever remember this getting specifically addressed. I know
that Woodsmith plans usually call for about 5 1/2 inch boards, with
grain rotated on each board to help keep it flat. Using wider boards
it is subject to warping and therefore not flat. I would think that as
the board get's thicker, you could use a wider board. I wonder if some
of the experts on this site can cite some specific guidelines on this.
