Have I Tweaked this Desk Frame?
Hello, first post here and already describing a problem. I've built a small desk for my daughter, and now find despite careful cutting and assembly the frame appears to be 'tweaked'.
I've used 2x3 for the main frame and legs, and good grade pine for the apron. The top is to be Birch plywood.
Of course the 2x3 isn't the best choice, but I carefully chose very straight pieces and avoided knots at the connection points. All pieces were cut on a power mitre saw, and squared it carefully before gluing/screwing.
But, as visible in the picture, the frame 'rocks' on a level surface, and requires nearly a 1/4" full shim to be stable. All measurements check out, the legs don't vary over +/-1/32", yet somehow I've built a twist into this thing.
At this point my only option seems to be installing 'leg levelers' or to the landfill.
What's the best guesses as to how I ended up with this issue?
Thanks much for the help!
