« Part 7: Added upper side and trying to fix error Part 8 of Outdoor Morris Chair series Part 9: Added side slats and created a lot of blocks »

Added the front and rear stretchers. Used the two pieces of cedar for the back since it won’t be seen anyway. I m fairly amazed that the four legs in both directions fit flat on the floor. Of course, the wood floor isn’t all that flat so maybe I shouldn’t get too excited yet.

Cut the 3-hole template board to remove the one hole side. That’s how I attached the front and back stretchers. Here’s a picture with one of the set of holes I drilled into the front/rear stretchers.

Yet another mistake. The front stretcher should be higher than the back stretcher. Moved it up, no pics yet.
