Construction Questions for Oomlout's "How to Make a Three Axis CNC Machine (Cheaply and Easily)" Answered

Apologies if this is in the wrong area, but I am in the middle of constructing Oomlout's CNC machine and was hoping someone could answer my questions.

It's not clear when cutting the Top Beam and Bottom Beam if the 1/4" holes are to be through holes or are .125" channels like the other 1/4" channels.

From the pictures it looks like the top is a through hole channel, but the bottom couldn't be.  The bottom says "0.000" where the other channels say ".125", so I don't know if that's a typo, I can't figure it out.  Having never built this before and the channels are not yet cut in the shot of the cutout pieces here https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-Three-Axis-CNC-Machine-Cheaply-and-/step7/Cutout-Pieces/  it's impossible for me to figure out.

Getting very eager to finishing this thing, I can't wait to start cutting things!

Please help!!!
