Thanks for the info.
I will have to go back and find the video on my tv… at 1.5 hours is just too long here.

When I do measure I use closer to the golden ratio (1 to 1.618) rather than the rule of 1/3’s. Rounding the 1.618 to 1.666 is only off 5/100, not much in woodworking. I believe Ray Key always specifies 2/5 for the top and 3/5 for the base for his boxes which fits the rule.
Using inches it is a pain but if using metric then you are only working with 1/5 with a base of 10. Anyone should be able to do that without a calculator.
