After multiple mistakes, measure twice, cut once, swear like a sailor I have run out of walnut. Grrrr. I will have to order more and it will take a few days to get here. You would think that in CA there would be a supplier of hardwood somewhere close, NOT! Well, I will get back to it in a few days. I have learned a valuable lesson, order more material than I think I will need and maybe measure it 3 times.
Thanks for the comments I have received, its nice to read the nice reponses and makes me want to do more projects.
