Editor's Note:

Users have pointed out errors in some of the plans in this publication. With the assistance of one especially enthusiastic builder and the cooperation of the authors, we think all of the errors have been corrected. However, you would be wise to take a careful look at each plan before you start building to make sure that everything appears correct, and that the boards as specified are actually long enough to allow for the usual 1/8" minimum saw kerf (i.e., wood removed by the saw) needed for each cut. Please alert us to any errors that you may spot.
