Step 5: Cut the rest of the frame pieces
Cut the rest of the frame pieces which are…
The rear The top and bottom frame member of a door or window (not the jamb). Cross member of panel doors or of a sash. Also the upper and lower member of a balustrade or staircase extending from one vertical support, such as a post, to another. The horizontal member of a fence., the front rail, the upper backrest rail, the lower backrest rail, and two seat support pieces.
Refer to the piece plan for all the necessary Any of the three linear measurements, length, breadth and depth..
Ft and inch version
The seat supports are 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ Timber, lumber. The hard fibrous lignified substance under the bark of trees, 50 1/4″ long.
A cut lengthwise along a board that also runs with the grain. (As opposed to cross-cut.) (cut lengthwise) a length of 1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ wood in half to get the two seat support pieces.
Millimeter measurements. version
The seat supports are 45mm x 45mm wood, 1255mm long.
Rip (cut lengthwise) a length of 90mm x 45mm wood in half to get the two seat support pieces.
The upper backrest rail, the lower backrest rail, and two seat support pieces all need rebates cut in them.
The piece plan also gives the An L-shaped cutout with one side, that is always at an end or side of a member, unlike a notch that is a U-shaped cutout. dimensions.
The rebates can be easily cut out with a circular saw.
Step 6: Make the shaped braces
Cut four shaped braces to go in the corners where the legs and side rails meet, to give added bracing strength.
Ft and inch version
Use 1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ wood to cut the braces out of.
Draw a grid on one of the pieces with the grid spacings 2″ apart.
Use 90mm x 45mm wood to cut the braces out of.
Draw a grid on one of the pieces with the grid spacings 50mm apart.
Using the picture below as reference, approximate the points between the grid lines on the To make rigid. piece then draw lines from point to point so that you have a pattern on the brace piece similar to the pattern drawing below.
Then cut the brace shape out using a power saw, jig-saw and handsaw where needed.
Once you have cut out the first brace, use it as a pattern to mark and cut the other three.
Step 7: Make the cut-outs and grooves
The two rear legs require a cut-out (to house the upper backrest rail) and the upper backrest rail requires a grove at each end (to house the rear legs).
The grooves in the backrest fit into the cut-outs in the rear legs in an interlocking fashion.
Both the cut-outs and the grooves can be made by setting the blade in a circular saw to the required depth and making multiple cuts across the cut-out and groove area. They can then be cleaned out with a chisel.
Refer to the plan below for the cut-out and groove dimensions.
