A good default ratio is the golden mean. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio

I know about the golden mean. can you elaborate on the calculation you'd use to get to the width of the breadboard end with this method? I guess I'm not seeting how you'd apply it.
thanks

Joe, I was of the opinion you had the width worked out and the overall length, less the ends was known as well. If I was doing it, I'd take the width, multiply by 1.6 or 1.7, then subtract the existing length and divide by 2.

Thanks.

Hi Joe, I made a few cutting/butcher boards, using left over Maple, Jarrah and Mahagony lumbers. You may want to take a look. I am going to take some picture and post it within an hour.

Not in this case, Nonny. 5/8 (roughly) of 3'6" is 26-1/4" which is way too deep for a breadboard end. 2-1/2 to 3-1/2" would be my guess, but I'd check that physically before working the pieces too far.
