I’m new…so I apologize if I’m posting in the wrong section (feel free to message me with polite guidance). I’m really new to woodworking… I didn’t own a tool (other than to have on hand for others to use) before may of 2013.
My question is… I purchased plans from Lee Valley for Adirondack furniture and they are called full scale drawings. I cut them carefully and made rigid templates to use and they matched the original size of the drawings…when I cut out the shaped parts some seemed really short (in length) when I was trying to dry fit (the plans don’t seem to be really strong on clear direction)...and when I go to the measurements they “full scale drawings” are up to 1.5 inches shorter than the cut list calls for….
Did I do something wrong (rookie mistake)... I left a little around the lines and sanded to them but I’m a little lost..
