Side frames and back slats
Step 5. Fix ‘side one’ cross rail
Fix a cross-rail (e) to side one’s vertical members. Refer to the drawing below.
Step 6. Fix ‘side two’ cross rail
Fix ‘side two’ cross rail (e) to side two’s vertical members.
Note: Side one must be a mirror image of side two.
Refer to the plans for positioning.
To reiterate – The top of the cross-rail (e) should be up from the bottom 16 1/4″ (206mm) and offset back from the front of vertical piece (b) by 3/4″ (20mm).
Step 7. Fix two back-rest slats
On a flat surface Lay the two side frames on their backs, spaced apart 48″ (1200mm) overall.
Work out (and mark) where the back-rest slats (a) are to be placed along the back-rest vertical supports (d).
Fix (with glue and two screws at each meeting) the first and last (lower and uppermost) back-rest slats in place.
