  5. This rolling stone episode needs some editing. There is a disagreement between the text inserts and dialogue for the stripset width (2 1/4″ versus 2″). Also, this happens once in the dialogue.

  6. I like the video but noticed sometimes the strips are referred
    to as 2″ strips and sometimes 2 1/2. So you should statrt out with 2 1/2″ strips if you are then cutting them into 4 1/2 X 4 1/2. Correct?

  8. The measurements are NOT correct – the verbal measurements are correct, not what is written. I think the strips and squares should be 2.5″ not two inches.
