Mistake, oh no!

Ok – Confession time. I made my first mistake on this build (last?), but it was easy to fix.

I mistakenly had the wrong edge down when making the second mortise in one of the rails for my double loose tenons. This resulted in the mortises being too close together. I took a deep breathe and made the mortise in the correct spot. I filled the mistake mortise in order to strengthen the walls between the mortises.

The mistake will be hidden and nobody will ever know. Keep it on the down low!

What the rest of the double mortises look like (with test loose tenons installed – need to still make these from walnut and longer):

Correct
