I started to cut up the pieces for the bench.

The end panels are 8 X 13 1/2 with a curved section cut out at the bottom.

Marking the curve on the panel.

The pieces cut out.

Marking the curves for the legs. They are 1 1/2 X 1 1/2 at the top and 2 1/2 X 1 1/2 at the bottom and the curve is 1 7/8 at a mark 8 1/8 from the top end.

And the legs cut.

The stretcher is 4 7/8 on each end and 3 1/2 in the middle by 1 1/2”

And cut:

Now on to sanding all of those curved surfaces.

It’s 35 F in the shop. I’m not spending a lot of time there.

Lots of curves, Karson, but on the bright side- all that sanding would warm you up!!

Lew it did warm me up and it melted the icicles that were dripping from my running nose.

Thanks for the warming tips. But I think that Tony (Grumpy) with his 115 degree days are the answer.

Would swap you just for a change Karson. Although a bit cooler here this week, below 90F for a few days luckily.
