Steps 1 to 3:
Step 1. Cut the pieces
Cut all the pieces to the lengths given in the drawing above. Cut the longer pieces first to minimize waste.
Note that pieces [E] and [B] have one end angled back 15° off square, and piece [D] has both ends angled back 15° off square as shown in the drawing above.
All other pieces are square cut.
Step 2. Make the seat frame
Make up the seat frame as shown in the drawing above.
Note that one end of pieces [B] (the cross members) are angled back 15° off square.
Note that the distance between the two intermediate cross members [B]
is 18-1/2″ (470mm). This is an important measurement.
Fixing detail: This applies to every step.
Apply glue to every joint before fixing with screws. Each step shows the screw holes marked with a black dot.
Pre-drill all the screw holes in the face piece of wood at each joint. The face piece is the piece where you will see the screw head (the screw hole dots shown in the drawings).
Refer to the drawing in each step for screw placement.
Use 3″ (75mm) screws in steps 2,3,4,and 8.
Use 2″ (50mm) screws in steps 5and 7.
Use 2″ (50mm) screws in step 6 except for the top of the table frame where you will use 3″ (75mm) screws.
Step 3. Make up the side frames
Make up the side frames as shown in the drawing above. The left side is a mirror image of the right side.
