Started the day like always, gluing up another back piece. One more to go!
[Below] The seats are cut out of 1/2 inch plywood. First I rip the 2×4 foot sheet at 16 inches, then I cross cut to get 3 seats per sheet. It would be more economical to cut these from a larger sheet, but a) I have no way to get a 4×8 foot sheet in my car, b) pretty sure a full sheet gives me more seats than I actually need. I’ll use the cut off for something, I’m sure.
[Below] Even though the plywood is not furniture grade, for this, a little sanding make’s it good enough.
[Below] After the sanding is done, the front top edge of the seat is rounded over.
[Below] Then the seat is glued into place and claps applied where needed.
[Below] The front edges of the seat frame sides and the seat back rails need to be rounded over a bit by hand. This is where the craftsmanship enters the piece!
[Below] The build is done. Nothing left to do now but stain and lacquer.
