I am making the dress up tower for a friend's daughter. I have a compound miter saw, but the depth of cut is only 12 inches. Since most of the cuts on the project require at least a 15 in. depth, I had Home Depot do the cuts. Much to my chagrin.
These cuts are off by what seems like MILES! I tried to piecemeal the boards together, but some of them are, like, 1/4 inch off from the rest of the assembled piece. I measured the cuts I made (like the ones on the 1x4), but I made a newbie mistake assuming the others were right.
I thought about getting some of the pieces recut by HD, but I've already glued and nailed the piece together. Is any of it salvageable? Is this a hard-lesson-learned-by-example situation?
Thanks for any and all advice,
