Re: Tongue & Groove Joints in Magazine Rack

Thanks, Tim. I can see several "strangers" in the top component when I make a copy off to the side as you suggested. Examination of the other components also reveals extras. I think I need to be more careful when push/pulling - I might not be actually eliminating waste, just pushing to the end of the component. Will press on and be more careful.

Re: Tongue & Groove Joints in Magazine Rack

Thanks, very helpful as I don't cope well with the spatial/3D/visual stuff. I am having similar problems with the rabbet on the back of the case. If I draw a horizontal guide line 1/4 inch up from from the back bottom lip of the top piece, open the top piece component for editing, and then draw in the lines on the back face of the top to create the horizontal rabbet, I end up with several individual planes (including the partitions), not one long horizontal plane. So to create the rabbet I have to push all the separate surfaces back one inch. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Steve
