  1. The plans on this page are incorrect. They give the wrong length of one component. You will waste wood using the dimensions in the plan, because you will have to re-cut that section after you figure out the correct length.

    Note: I would have put this in the forum, but I have been unable to log-in. I’ve tried to join the forum twice now, using two different names, and email addresses. I get the email to confirm my email, click the link to verify, webpage says I’m verified, but still cannot log in. It still tells me I haven’t verified!!!
