Yes, see my reply to Derek Cohen. This is exactly what I was looking for; but if you look at the surrounding posts, I have to admit that this engineering approach lacks the whole hand-tool , experienced , hand-tool woodworker, historical, nostalgic,"feel" that is cherished here. And, indeed, the large range of sizes that come out of your calculations, because of uncertainty about wood types, etc. does indeed bear out what the others are saying. Still, the physicist in me ( actually I am a mathematician) loves what you've written!
