I had to laugh...

After bitching about the chiwanese chairs I was repairing not being square, I confess to a senior's moment (even though I'm not Mexican). The back of the chair is 2" narrower than the front, by design.
A stupid mistake on my part. Have to remember to measure all 4 sides next time, not just the front and one side.
My son/shop assistant got a good chuckle in at dad's expense when I realized what I had done wrong...

I've made similar errors more than once. Mine were caused by going back and forth between measuring with the inside and outside of my framing square. I'm learning to pay closer attention! : )

It's ok to make those kind of mistakes, as long as you can laugh at yourself for doing it.
