The part labeled (P) should be (Q) and the part labeled (Q) should be (P).
Page 16: Online Extra - Cutting Diagram
Three corrections: (1) The online extra cutting diagram indicates only one part T (Tower Back) but there should be two. (2) The six Cart Shelf Front/Back Pieces (JJ) are shown getting cut from a 5 1/2"-wide board. At 2" wide, these can’t come from the board as shown; a wider board is needed. (3) The 40 mounting block pieces (O) are shown as being cut from one board. There isn't quite enough room so you may need to cut several of them from a different board.
Page 21: Angle of bevel cuts
The instructions for making the posts do not indicate the angle of the bevel. The blade tilt angle is 45 degrees.
