Shape the arms and back rails
Cut and shape the arms and back rails according to the drawing below.
The back rails will need to be ripped (cut lengthwise) to achieve the required width.
Ensure the pieces are clamped to a work bench or otherwise held secure while cutting.
Add the arms, top back rail, and the ‘infill’ cleats
Refer to the plan drawings and fit the arms, and top rail. Fix them with screws and glue.
Nail the ‘infill’ cleats to the bottom edge of the upper rail, and the top edge of the bottom rail.
Off-set them back from the front, 12mm (1/2″), or whatever the thickness of the infill is.
The purpose of the ‘infill’ cleats are to support the infill.
We used 12mm (1/2″) slats for the infill, so therefore the ‘infill’ cleats were set back from the front
