The width of the Tabernacle Boards

I have found an interesting fact about Tabernacle boards that I wanted to share with you.

Turns out that the width of the Tabernacle boards is exactly equal to the full arm's length. Arm's length of the adult male human is ~27 inches, which equates to 1.5 cubits, which is exactly the width of each of the Tabernacle boards.

This was not surprising to me though because it seems that all Tabernacle units of measure and Torah units of measure for that matter are based on human body parts. Omer, cubit and other units of measure are based on the human body.
