Right, I should have included this in the original post, but I am fairly confident that it was not cross threaded. I was able to thread both nuts on by hand until the bolt was through the nut before tightening. Although I agree this does still seem to be the easiest explanation for what happened. The hardware I used was nice stainless 18-8 stuff from McMaster.

I will have to see if I can fit my dremel in the hole to cut the nut, or else it’s back to the lumber yard to remake this stretcher…

Thanks all
