Step 8. Seat support strips
From 32mm x 20mm (3/4″ x 1 1/4″)stock, cut two pieces to length to fit between the two end rails.
Screw them to the front and back rails 22mm (7/8″) down from the top.
That is slightly more than the thickness of the seat A piece of sawn, or dressed lumber of greater width than thickness. Usually 19mm (3/4") to 38mm (1 1/2") thick and 75mm (3") or more wide..
The seat support strips are solely to support the drop-in seat.

We used high gloss enamel paint and applied three coats over three days giving a slight sand before each new coat.
You might want to do something different, such as stain and polyurethane.
