Drawer Rail and a Mistake (Desk Organizer)

Not a good day for me in the shop. I was laying out my mortises for the front drawer rail and forgot that they are not symmetrical on each side. One side is suppose to get a continuous mortise, and the other side where the drawer is, gets two smaller length mortises.  After a moment of disbelief, I patched the mortise and moved on.  The mistake will be partly inside and covered by the drawer. The only way you’d ever see it is if you completely removed the drawer (or if I tell you). Oops.
