Issue 172

2-in-1 Desk Set
Page 39: Drilling the holes illustration
The drawing on the left has a callout about drilling a 9/32"-dia. hole. It should be 9/64".
High-Back Hall Bench
Page 31: Mirror Description
Clarification: The mirrors used in this project were custom-made with a 1 1/4" bevel. The bevel size is a matter of personal preference, so choose what looks best to you.
Page 31: Supply list for Upper Assembly
The length of Piece II is 4 3/4", not 4 1/4" as printed.
Page 31: Cutting diagram
The diagram indicates 4 of part II, but only 2 are needed.
Page 30: How-to Bracket Details diagram
The piece is 4 3/4" long, not 4 1/4" as printed. The placement for the hole to accept the T-bolts that hold the upper assembly to the bench is correct.

Part Y is listed as plywood, yet shows up on the top board in the lower set. That part number on the board should be W. Also, parts DD and EE in the second board are plywood as well. There's no need for them to be listed on the board.
Letter Bin
Page 17: How-To, First Illustration
The curve should start 1 5/8" from the edge of the notch, as shown in detail 'b' at the top of the page.
Page 17: Text in Joinery paragraph
Under the paragraph heading "Joinery", the second sentence should read as follows: These rabbets, which you'll find dimensioned in details 'c' and 'd,' will hold the plywood back that's added later.
Shop Notebook
Page 33: Illustration 3
For the letter bin, the screws should be #6 x 3/8" woodscrews, not 1/2" as shown. The Letter Bin article correctly says to use 3/8" woodscrews.
