Page 49: Note

The Note accompanying the cutting diagram mistakenly indicates that part M is planed down to 3/8". It should instead reference part MM, reading thus: "Parts C, I, L, and JJ are resawn from 5/4 stock and planed to 3/8" thick. Parts Q and MM are planed down to 3/8" thick. Parts H are planed to 1 1/16" thick. Parts AA are planed to 3/4" thick."
