Default Assembly problem, any suggestion?

This bracket just doesn't seem to be going together correctly. Maybe my conversion from metric to imperial was wrong. Any suggestions?

(Yes, it was a slow day in the shop and I needed some amusement.)

I think your mistake was getting the directions from M C Escher. It looks like one of his stair braces. Google Image Result for http://visualfunhouse.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/mc_escher_063.jpg

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

So were you working 5 dimensionless then, Oliver? That's the only way I know of to make those connections, unless you fudge something along the way.

Bob is that the kind of fencing you use when you're not exactly sure where the corner post on your property line is?

I believe you got it upside down

Looking forward to your participation.
Filling out your profile to include (first name,tools and short bio is strictly (optional )but does help members to better relate to each other.
Thank You John
