A simple design that took you a long time to execute, and you still screwed it up. How many others here have done that. I’ll be the first to raise my hand. The (somewhat) cool thing is that you learned both through the building and the fixing. I remember one of the first things I built, when I was a kid, was a toolbox. I figured it all out, cut all my pieces, then discovered that I had cut the top the same size as the bottom. The bottom was inset into the toolbox, surrounded/framed by the sides for strength, and the top was supposed overlap the sides and front/back. Now the top was too small in length and width. Doh!!! Most of the time I at least sketch out my plan on paper, so I can have my “doh!!!” moment when all it takes to fix is an eraser!
