Making a Balinese-style bench

Step 4.   Make the arms

outline of the arm

Cut two pieces of 145 mm x 45 mm (1½" x 5½") wood, 650 mm (26)" long for the two arms.

Draw a grid on one of the pieces with the grid spacings 50 mm (2") apart.

Using the picture below as reference , approximate the points between the grid lines on the arm piece.
Then draw lines from point to point so that you have a pattern on the arm piece similar to the pattern drawing below.

Prior to cutting, hold the marked piece of wood in position in relation to the front and rear legs (which are temporarily placed together), to ensure the back angle of the arm is correct (see the photo).

Then cut the arm shape out using a power saw, jig-saw and handsaw where needed.

Once you have cut out the first arm, use it as a pattern to mark and cut the second.
