I foolishly believed that the plans that I was following to a T were accurate and tested prior to publication. I refer to a plan to construct a Headbord for a queen sized bed. Last months issue.
I cut my expensive Cherry boards to measurement, rails and stiles I dry fitted them, no problem.
Next step was the edging well that is the problem. Woodsmith shows the stiles 18” when in fact they needed to be 20”. Also they mis labeled stiles and rails (easy to reverse) but I ask, who proofed the plans?
So I am po’d it is going to means an unneeded expense for more cherry.
When I make my stupid mistakes I scream and holler and go DOh, when I pay for a subscription and get incorrect advise I say no more. Yes you say, he should have checked before cutting, a rookie mistake. I agree, and I will no longer take for granted that the plans are right.
Woodsmith magazine should be doing a better job of proofing what they publish. My personal opinion is that there are better publications out there.
