The seat slats need to be rounded over with a router to remove the sharp edges. As the author says “you don’t want to pinch something”. I temporarily set the slats on the chair and they looked pretty good. I would have guessed with slats 1” apart it would have been less comfortable, but it wasn’t too bad at all. The back is not installed yet so it’s not comfortable yet.

To wait or not? My 15-year old can’t help me until Friday night so I might have to figure out how to use our router table. Seriously, he’s done all the routing – he is really good at it.

Maybe I can start the back and let him route the slats for the seats. There are 12 slats and both of the top edges need routing. 24 edges? Sounds like a job for the kid!
