If the cut is parallel to the long dimension, then each piece is 40 inches long, but its width is

1/2 of the original board's width.

If the cut is parallel to the short dimension, then the width is preserved, and each piece is 20 inches long.

If the cut is parallel to to the flat, then each piece is 40 inches long and has the original width,

but is only 1/2 the thickness of the original board.
