I think I am done for the day. I got the side slats on the two chairs.
No big tricks there except that the crown is still there on the side tops. I cut the slats at 7 degrees to match my earlier mess-up. Slats are leveled at bottom side so they will be even. After all, if I have to do something to flatted down the crown I might as well fix the slats which are slightly too tall at the same time.
The spacing of the slats was pretty close to what was specified in the book except that I ended up with an extra 1/4 in. I used two pieces of 1/8 in hardboard on both ends plus a bunch of small blocks which I cut on the table saw to be the specified spacing. In the end it was very snug which mean things were centered and lined up nicely.
Ran into a snag with the directions. P 95 has a chart which looks right for relative sizes, but the dimensions are messed up. Wrote to the author who confirmed (thanks…) that the grid is good, but the dimensions are wrong.
