« Part 5: Really stupid mistake Part 6 of Outdoor Morris Chair series Part 7: Added upper side and trying to fix error »

Got the bottom sides done. The legs stand square and look pretty good. Tricky part is alternating the side that the bottom support goes onto.

Along the way, I made a small template to make sure that I get the holes in the side right. Carefully measured a piece of scrap that was the same width and added the three holes that I need to attach the sides to the bottoms.

Drilled out the template with the forstner bit to get nice straight and clean template holes.

Decided I am not going to install any more wood plugs until I am done. That way I can take apart something if it doesn’t work right.

Simulated the fit of the top arm and the angle is not great. I don’t think it’s an issue with the side or the back, but it will look funny at the front. May have to use some trig and figure out what the angle is now.
