I’m going to guess the 2×4 was cut on the wrong side of your 36” mark, taking 1/8” with each cut for the overall total of 1/4”.

Just a guess.

Second guess is you cut right through the line, vs. alongside it.

Make sure cut lines have an additional mark alongside, showing where the kerf of the sawblade is to remove material.
