« Part 13: Please be gentle - it's my first time (with the router) Part 14 of Outdoor Morris Chair series Part 15: Fixing the crown under the arm »

Got the chair slats installed. Only one screw “missed”. Not bad out of 12 screws. Picked the best side of the wood for the routing so since that’s the side that is up.

Only challenge was to find the spacing from the edge for the countersink hole. Too far and it misses the bottom board. Too close and you risk splitting the board at the end.

Used 3/4” scraps with two pieces of 1/8” hardboard to make the 1” gap.

Finished the other chair slats early this AM. Chair feels really solid when I sit in it.

Next back and arms. Will need to figure out how to do the crown in the support under the arms. Still thinking power plane to flatten it out.
