I’m working on a small side/buffet table for some friends (similar to the shaker style library table Norm built on the NYW). For the front apron where there will be two drawers, I milled two narrow rails for the top and bottom, and glued in space blocks on both sides and the middle. Well, I screwed up when I measured the center point for the middle block, and ended up with one 13” wide drawer and one 15” (luckily I measured before I started cutting the stock for the drawers). Frustrating? Yes. But I ended up using my router, edge guide, speed square, and a whole lot of clenching to widen out the narrower opening by reducing the overall width of the center divider.

The worst part was is that the night before I discovered this, after I glued it up, I was thinking: “This is going too well. I’m not that good or that careful, something has to be wrong.”
