Place the seat slats in place spread evenly within the seat frame.

Members (n) and (m) will need to be checked (cut) out at each end to allow for the chain cavity and vertical arm supports (d) and (e). (See diagram).

Screw the seat slats to the seat frame members (b) and (c).

Pre-drill screw holes in the slats slightly bigger that the screw shank.
