Page 16: Cutting diagram
Diagram for cutting piece D indicates you only need 4, but you need 8 total. To cut the additional 4, need 24" of 3/4" thick stock. Diagram for pieces F and L is missing. Need 1/2" x 5 1/2" - 60" cherry. Also there is a note about the cutting diagram: "1. Piece F and L and N are 1/2" pieces coming out of a 3/4" piece. 2. Because the builder may use a variety of combinations to suit their own taste -- using all CD cases, all shelves or a combination of cases and shelves, we couldn't draw an accurate cutting diagram. 3. We put most of the optional pieces in the same board, so whatever option the builder uses, he should have enough wood. 4. Mistake: Piece E should not be in diagram, and piece F can be fit in whereever you have room, depending on what options you pick."
