Making a Balinese-style bench
Step 2. Join the front legs and side rails
Out of 90 mm x 45 mm (1½" x 3½") wood, cut two side rails at 575 mm (23") long.
The front legs are already made (step 1).
Add some glue to the insides of the mortise holes in the front legs.
Then tap the side rails in through the mortises, until they protrude 25 mm (1") out the other side.
Ensure that the side rails are at right angles (90°) to the front legs.
Then hammer a couple of nails into each leg to secure the joints.
