Ok, thank you, sir. Cut the 2x8 short of supporting surfaces. I hear the 2/3s but seems like I might as well use a longer piece of lumber (although getting an 8' board home would be easier for sure). Is pre-drilling for screws a good idea? I'm patient enough to do it and I'm afraid the old lumber will crack.

Out of curiosity, what's the problem with rotating the sisters into place? Is it because there is finished stuff above the floor or just shape irregularities that always crop up in reality? Is cutting a notch out of the bottom then shimming not practical either? Seems beneficial to have it resting on supports at the end. Just want to understand.
