I’m working my way through this project and I’m in the step where I’m laying out the rear mortises (video 5). I noticed that the math doesn’t seem to add up. The front and rear rails are 2 3/4” wide and the side rail is 18” long with 1 1/2” tenons for an effective length of 15”. Add 1/8” for the gap in the rear mortise and you are at 20 5/8”, but Paul said he left 5/8 from the back of the 21” side panel. I’m counting 3/8” or 1/2” if he really let the front rail overhang by 1/8” to be planed off later. What did I miss?
