Step 12. Prepare the armrests

Wood prepared for the seat armrest

The ends of the armrests (f) need to be cut to fit around the back-rest support (d).
This can be done with a handsaw. Cut out the rebate using the drawing below as a guide. Then coat the cut-out area with preservative (if applicable).
