the seat boards Step 11: Fit the seat boards

Screw a seat support along the front rail 1 1/4" down from the top.

Measure between the front and rear rails, to determine the length of the seat boards. They should be approximately 20 1/2" long.
Cut the seat boards out of 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" wood.

You will need 9 boards. One may need to be ripped down in order to fit.

Cut the seat boards and fit them, but first apply a run of glue along the seat supports.
Fix by way of screwing from underneath - through the seat supports into the seat boards.
