Folks, wood moves. It moves a lot. A human hair is 3 thousands in diameter. I don’t think thousands is a word for wood. That’s a metal word. I remember back in drafting class ” + – .0005” that’s a very highly finished hunk of metal. Wood is more in the range of 100s. 0.0156 inch or 0.397 MM is 1/64 of an inch. If you use that measurement as a clearance for a drawer is ‘ante gona open very well.
