Assembling the seat unit
Step 4. To secure with nails or screws. the lower back support to the seat sides
Place the two seat sides (a) on an even work surface (saw-horses, etc.) and fix the lower back support in place with glue and Timber, lumber. The hard fibrous lignified substance under the bark of trees screws.
Note: For every joining, ensure that there is ample glue and pre-drill all screw holes in the covering piece of wood.
Step 5. Fix the rear spacer
Fix the first seat slat (g) in place (just to keep the seat sides Being of equal distance from each other at all points.) and then turn the unit on its side and fix the rear spacer (b) in place.
Pre-drill the screw holes in the seat-slat (one each end) and also through the seat-sides (two each side, where the rear spacer lines up) and allow ample glue.
Step 6. Fix some of the seat slats
Turn the unit upright.
The first seat slat (g) is already fixed in place.
Add another 10 seat slats, one next to the other, in the same manner i.e., pre-drill, glue and screw.
Note: Do not fix the rest (the last 5) just yet, we will do that at a later stage.
Step 7. Join together a leg, To make rigid. and arm
Join together the legs (c), braces (f) and arms (h) in the following order.
1.) Glue and screw the braces to the arms. Refer to the ‘side Side view of a building. plan’ on page 3 for placement. Screw through the arm (pre-drill first) into the brace.
2.) Lay the arms upside down and centralize the leg and brace combinations (also upside down) on the arms, 2″ (50mm) in from the front.
