Step 4: Cut some tabletop and seat boards

The tabletop and seat boards are made out of 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" (ex 2" x 6") wood.
First cut the six longest seat boards which are 50 3/4" long with an angle cut 30° off square at both ends.
Cut one board first, and then use that as a pattern to mark and cut the other five.
Then cut the six longest tabletop boards, which are 33" long with an angle cut 30° off square at both ends.
Cut one first, and then use that as a pattern to mark and cut the other five.

Next cut one only of each of the remaining different sized tabletop and seat boards, which is 1 @ 44 1/16", 1 @ 26 5/16", 1 @ 19 5/8", 1 @ 12 15/16", and 1 @ 6 1/4".

Why only cut one of each and not all six?

So we can lay them in place first to ensure that they all fit before cutting the rest. You know, just in case we have made a mistake with the measurements, the cutting, or something... heaven forbid.
