When you purchase full size furniture plans from a professional how accurate should they be, with in 1/16", 1/8" is there an industry standard? Confused and a little upset. The # don't add up.
HSteier said:I think that obsessing over fractions of an inch is a big waste of time. I mean I too like to obssess over my projects, but not whether it's 1/32 too big or too small. Once I get started I use plan measurements only as a guideline and then individually measure each piece to fit. It doesn't matter to me if the plan says the drawer opening is 32" by 6" and my actual size is 31 15/16 by 6 1/8. I cut to fit.
If you look at multiple pieces by one maker (the Elfe chests come to mind) none are exactly the same; too much time wasted over obsessing about fractions.
