Clarification. The article Shop Notebook (p. 32-33) contains details about making the feet for the workbench, but contains an error. It shows the dimension of the location for the foot cutout as 3 1/2" but it should be 5 1/2". See the correction note on the Shop Notebook article in this issue.

Clarification: The cutting diagram shows part D (the legs) coming from 1 3/4" stock. The parts are only 1 1/2" thick, but would need to be planed or resawn from 1 3/4" stock. There are no problems with the art or copy.

Detail "b" incorrectly calls for a 1/16" chamfer on the long edges of part I. It should be a 1/8" chamfer.
