Not as fast as I first thought, finally done! One point for all pattern-routers, Masonite did NOT work as a template. Too thin to register against bearings for routing, go for 1/2-3/4 MDF as I did after first failures.
I made mine from rot-resistant cypress leftover from the deck project, with a fat coat of furniture wax. I hope they just grey out and not need too much care.
The ever-patient SWMBO likes them, loves the feel of the wood and the comfy seating, so I have a win.

I just got the Veritas plans for these, going to attempt to knock two of them out this weekend! Beautiful job, and great choice in the cypress!

Did you use their $17.50 hardware kit? Or did you substitute standard hardware?
