Those are far too precise, sir. Pfffft!
Wow, thick drawers. Are those specified in the Stickley and/or A&C
style, or do you just prefer a beefier drawer?

The drawer sides are 3/4", but the drawers are short and wide (2 1/2" X
12" x 22"), so it may be the camera playing tricks?
IME, 3/4" drawer side stock lets you bury a ~1/4" ply drawer bottom in a
3/8" dadoes for an overall stronger drawer of this depth and width,
which will likely be used for relatively heavy silverware because of the
The above notwithstanding, I do prefer 3/4" drawer stock for all
drawers, and I do build a lot of drawers on occasion:
Besides, my DT jig was already setup for 3/4" drawer sides. ;)
I also have an older Leigh D4 that I've just about plumb wore out down
through the years.
Although I'm much more experienced on the Leigh, and still have to refer
to the Akeda manual, the fact that the Akeda makes setup between uses a
breeze is a big selling point. Being able to mark the locations of the
fingers in a precise and repeatable manner was worth the entry fee.
I too have bought up some spare parts myself, just in case ... it's not
always the better mousetrap that wins.
I doubt there's an industry standard... who knows, maybe there is.
But it would cool if all manufacturers would make their shim/spacers of
equal size, the same colors.
I know the tile spacers I use all have size/color coordination.
No matter what the shape of the spacer, all the ones of the same
thickness are the same color.
