Missing Text in the Biscuit Joiner Article
We apologize for the mistake on page 79 in the February 2007 issue, at the end of the Biscuit Joiner story. It seems a word-and-a-half got dropped somewhere in the production process. What’s missing is: “ing dust.”
We thank all of you who called this mistake to our attention, and will do our best to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

June 2002
Review of Precision Plunge Routers
CORRECTION: In our review of precision plunge routers we made two mistakes in our discussion of the Makita RP1001. We stated that the router has no means of dust collection. There is a shroud available as an accessory when the router is purchased by itself. Also, we stated in the chart that the Makita does not have a self-releasing collet when it actually does. We regret the errors.

Resawing With the Band Saw
CORRECTION: We listed the wrong tooth configuration for the blade recommended for resawing. The blade is a Lenox 3/8″, 3/4 variable-pitch blade sold under Lenox’s Tri-Master line. For information on where to purchase this excellent carbide-toothed band saw blade, call Lenox at 800-628-8810.

June 2001

CORRECTION: On page 42 the story says the dado in the bottom should go 2″ from the bottom. The drawing shows it at 2-1/2″. The drawing is correct.

Special Storage & Shelving Issue
Barrister Bookcase
On page 15 in the center column, there’s a typo. We listed the location of the hole centers as being 1-3/16″ down from the top edge. It’s actually 13/16″. Also, in the drawing below that, we listed the distance between the front of the door and the case front as 1/4″. It’s actually 1/8″.

December 2000

Correction to the drawing of the Dovetail Jig
Some readers have been confused as to why we tell you to make a 36″-long piece to build a 6″ jig. This allows you some extra stock to make other similar jigs and makes cutting the miters and bevels much safer. On the drawing there is one correction. The 2-1/8″ dimensions on the face piece should be 1-5/8″ each. The cutting list is correct.

CORRECTION: The length of the legs (part A) should be 21-1/8″.

April 2000
Icebox Entertainment Center
CORRECTION: Attach the mitered base pieces to the front of the case with glue and screws. Use a biscuit in the miters. Attach the base pieces to the sides with screws in slotted holes to allow movement. On the face frame, there’s no shoulder on the top rail. So the mortise on the stile is open on the end of the stile. Ignore the door’s mortise dimensions in the photo caption. Actual mortise dimensions are 1/4″ x 1-3/4″ x 2-1/8″ for the upper rail and 1/4″ x 2-1/4″ x 2-1/8″ for the bottom rail. These are 3/8″ in from the stile end. Tenon sizes are stated on page 65. The notch dimension is wrong. It should be 3/8″ x 1-3/4″.

Magic Shelves

CORRECTION: The hardwood cleat material as listed in the cutting list should actually be 7/8″ x 1-1/8″

Little Shop that Could Mark II
CORRECTION: Under the section titled “Drawers & Doors,” the fourth sentence should read “Use a 1/4″ x 1/2″ rabbet cut on the drawer sides, and use a 1/4″ x 1/4″ groove…”

Restoring a Hand Plane
CORRECTION: In the sidebar on removing rust with electrolysis, the story says to use baking powder and the caption says to use baking soda. Baking soda is the correct material.
